Import Regulations for Used Japanese Cars - Tanzania

So you are looking to bring a car into Tanzania, but you are unsure where to start?

Well, although there may not be an age restriction on import vehicles in Tanzania, there are still a few things to consider when importing to Tanzania.

You will need to have the vehicle inspected and certified for road worthiness. Road worthiness inspection for Japanese used vehicles being imported into Tanzania is currently performed by JAAI (Japan Auto Appraisal Institute) and EAA-S (East Africa Automobile Services), which will help alleviate any potential stress or worries that may be caused by possible purchasing lemons.

You will also need to consider the applicable taxes and custom duties when importing to Tanzania. Although the tax is a bit complicated, there is the VAT (Value Added Tax), Import Duty, and Excise Duty.

The import duty, which is the tax applied to all import items, is calculated as 25% of the CIF, and the VAT is fairly simple, it's the value added tax that is applied to all products sold, and is 18% of the CIF + Import Duty.

And then we have the Excise Duty. The Excise Duty is calculated depending on the engine displacement, and age of the vehicle. If the car you are importing has an engine displacement of 1000cc or less, then there is no excise duty applied for the engine size. For passenger vehicles with an engine size between 1001cc and 2000cc, there is a 5% tax applied to the CIF plus import duty. And passenger vehicles with an engine size of 2001cc and up will have a 10% tax applied to the CIF plus import duty.

There is also an excise duty applied to vehicle age, where vehicles that are 7 years old or younger do not have a an excise duty applied for age, but cars that are between 8 and 10 years old are taxed 15% of the CIF and import duty, while vehicles 11 years or older are taxed 30% of the CIF and import duty.

In addition to this, buses that are older than 5 years old have a 10% tax applied to the CIF and import duty.
