Car Shipping to Namibia from the UK Guide

Helping you export your vehicles to Namibia


Before you go

Vehicles should not be shipped to Namibia until the owner is in possession of an import permit. The client must complete all documentation and present it to the customs department together with their passport so that customs can test the CA304a. Customs will only release the vehicle once it is satisfied that everything is in order, and the engine number agrees with that stated on the Bill of Entry. Once the bill of entry has been endorsed by customs, this document must be presented to the motor licence department who will issue the licence.

Unless the shippers work permit is based on technical agreement with the Namibian Government which the original agreement is available for presentation to the Namibian authorities, taxes and duties ranging between 15% and 30% will be due on the value of the vehicle being imported. In addition, the shipper should have been the owner of the vehicle for 12 months or more before importing the vehicle to Namibia, otherwise duties and taxes will be applicable. Imported vehicles may only be sold in Namibia after 24 months after the date of importation. The importation of left-hand drive vehicles into Namibia is prohibited; the Namibian customs authorities will only make an exception for diplomats.

Importation of cars older than 5 years are not allowed, the bill of lading must reflect the chassis, brand, model, and year of the vehicle.
