Clearing Agent at Destination

It is very important that you have a reputable clearing agent to assist you with the import procedures at the destination port. A good clearing agent can not only advise you on import regulations and expected import taxes, but they will be your representative on the ground liaising with the relevant authorities and clearing your car out of the port in the shortest time frame possible. As we regularly transport vehicles to Namibia, Botswana, South Africa and other African countries, we already have a reputable clearing agent in place. Our clearing agent, Logistical Support Services, can deliver the vehicle from the port to Windhoek without any hassle.

Import taxes

Custom Duty approximately 25%, VAT 15%* Tax Rates depends on the type of vehicles. * Please inquire at your local clearing agent for latest updates. It is very important to know what sort of import tax you will pay when importing your car. We strongly advise that you consider this before purchase, as we would not like for our customers to be hit with an unexpected bill. We will not be responsible for the taxes incurred at the Port.
