Import Regulations for Used Japanese Cars - ZambiaChoosing a car is simple. You narrow the choices from thousands of cars to a set few makes and models that you like, and then search for those. But, there is also a lot you need to take into consideration. Especially, when you are importing your vehicle from Japan to Zambia.
In addition to the condition of the vehicle, there are taxes, pre-shipping inspection, and taxes again. Combing through all the information on the interwebs may be a little daunting, but it is well worth the effort to be informed when making your purchase.
Firstly, there is no age restriction on vehicles that are imported to Zambia. Which may be a good thing depending on how you think of it. Although there is no age restriction on import cars, road worthiness and odometer inspection certificate is required.
The compulsory inspection certificate is provided by JEVIC, and vehicles that do not pass the RWI cannot be registered for use on Zambian roads.
After all is done, and shipped, the remaining thing you will need to worry about is the taxes. In addition to all the import duties, usually ranging from 45% - 80% of the CIF price, you will also need to pay a Carbon Emission Surtax annually. The surtax will range from 50,000 Kwacha to 200,000 Kwacha per year depending on your engine size.
Age Requirement: None
Road Worthiness Inspection: Required (JEVIC)
