Japanese Car Import Rules and Regulations - Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is one of the more lax countries when dealing with used car importation. There are very few restrictions that you need to keep in mind, but the taxes are quite complicated. Aside from the fact that importation to Zimbabwe is restricted to cars with the steering column on the right hand side (as of October 31st, 2011), there are no other restrictions you need to worry about right now. There is no age restriction, nor is there a road worthiness inspection. However, with the savings you make on road worthiness inspection, you may run into some tax issues, as the taxes and duties may be a little pricy in Zimbabwe.

All normal passenger vehicles are charged a 40% import duty on the CIF price, along with a 25% surtax on the CIF price if it is older than 5 years old. And a VAT of 15% is applied to the subtotal from the CIF, import duty, and surtax. So the total tax is about 90% of the the CIF value for cars that are 5 years or older.

Cheat Sheet:
Age Regulations: None
Road Worthiness inspection: Not Required
