How Much Does It Cost to Ship My Car from the UAE to…

Below you will find a list of 19 common destinations people in the UAE ship their cars to and the approximate costs along with the average duties and taxes for each country.

ServiceMarket can help you find car shipping companies to ship your car to any of these destinations and more! Just click here and fill out the form or call us and we’ll do the rest. If you’re trying to decide on the best car shipping company for you, our list of the top 5 car shipping companies in 2017 may be a good place to start. 

VAT: Value added tax

GST: Goods and Services Tax

IMPORTANT:

  • The approximate costs listed are just estimates and should not be used as exact figures.
  • The large ranges are due to the different shipping options available for each country.

For example: The approximate cost for shipping your car to Bahrain is AED 1,800 – AED 10,000. This means that AED 1,800 is the approximate price for the lowest cost option which is roll-on, roll-off on a car carrier. While AED 10,000 is the approximate cost for shipping to Bahrain in a container by sea.

  • The costs listed exclude any custom duties and taxes that you may incur on shipping.

For example: Shipping your car to the Philippines costs roughly between AED 6,000 to AED 8,000 but this cost is ONLY on freight charges. Once taxes, duties and all other additional charges are added, the cost of shipping your car is almost 100% of your car value. This is why many car shipping companies discourage shipping your car to the Philippines. However, if you are a diplomat you do not incur these additional charges.

You can find a list of countries which are very expensive to ship cars to due to high custom duties and taxes here.

  • From the time of publication of this article, the average duties and taxes listed are correct, however they may change without notice. It is always best to conduct further research after referring to the table above.
  • Different countries have different requirements and car specifications that must be adhered to before you can legally register a car. Therefore, it’s important to fully understand the restrictions in place to make sure that your car conforms to all legal requirements beforehand. For example, you cannot legally important a Left Hand Drive vehicle into South Africa.

        Sorry, but your website is pretty useless and doesn’t get past first data entry page…selecting car type etc and country location…why make it so specific when you just want customers to enquire, but find they can’t, give up and so enquire elsewhere…try Toyota Fortuna from JBR Dubai to Bacolod..and let me know? Perhaps this is the basic reason why everyone is asking on specific requests. Thanks.

      Hi Hamza,

      Shipping your car to Pakistan can be complicated due to factors such as custom clearance. Most shipping companies would not take care of the custom clearance, so you would have to organize this yourself.

      Shipping your car to Karachi Port usually takes around 4-6 weeks and you will be looking at a shipping cost around AED 5,000 (excluding custom charges and any duties). Please submit a request on our website. You will then be contacted by car shipping companies who can explain the process of shipping a car to Pakistan and the difficulties you may face.

      Hi Waqas,

      It doesn’t really make sense to do this. It would not be cost effective and the shipping process takes a number of weeks. If possible, it would be a good idea to consider hiring one for the one month you are there. Just to ship your Harley Davidson to India you would be looking at paying something around 8,000 AED (excluding duties).

      Let us know if we can help with anything else.

      Dear,
      A door-to-door service costs on average 23,000 AED and will have a transit time of 1 month. The car needs to meet the US specifications.
      The costs for alterations to meet the US specifications, can add up to a significant amount, in this case we would advise you to sell the car.
      If you are looking for detailed quotes to ship your car, feel free to contact us.

      Thank you!

      Here’s the skinny, check under the hood of your chevy, it was made in the USA and there will be a data or EPA sticker on it and will say you meet the EPA standards for the USA. There will be no issues bringing it back to the USA. Also go to Chevrolet website and apply for the letter from them saying it meets all the EPA standards and have that ready to show when it arrives in the US. Just find the VIN on the vehicle. I am shipping a Ford Mustang back which was also made in Michigan, USA so it meets all the current EPA emission standards.

          Hi JB,

          It takes around 4-6 weeks to ship a car to the UK and it is very expensive so it might not make sense to do this for such a short time period. In most cases you can only drive with foreign number plates on in the UK for up to 6 months, after which you would be required to register your vehicle and change to UK number plates. We recommend that you get in touch with one of our car shipping partners to discuss your situation in detail.

      We also advise checking car compatibility with Latvian rules before shipping your car, as this can add expense to the cost of shipping.

      However to give you an estimate: the cost of the transit fees will be between 6,000 and 8,000 AED and the cost for duties, customs and clearances will be approximately the value of your car.
