Shipping Ports:

Namibia-Walvis Bay and Durban are major ports for importing cars in Botswana. These ports provide straight forward clearing procedures and outstanding security for the used car and its content.

Age Restrictions:

No Age Restrictions for importation of used vehicles in Botswana.

Customs Clearance

For customs clearance, the importer can opt to use the services of an agent or conduct the process on their own. Depending on the address that you issue to the shipping agent in the shipping country, the transporter can come at any time and collect your vehicle following the agent’s arrangements. Whether you are importing a new or used car, the vehicle will first land at the Port of Durban, which is organised by the agent. In most cases, the agent transports the vehicle to Botswana via vehicle carriers.

Your quote for international vehicle transport depends on the total mileage that the vehicle will travel before reaching you. Additionally, the shipping rates will depend whether you opt for container or Ro/Ro in addition to the vehicle type.
