When considering whether to import your vehicle or personal items into Ghana, you should make sure you have a reliable shipping company to guide you through the entire process. Ghana has a lot of Import regulation when it comes to motor vehicles and it is important to be armed with all the information before embarking on the Move.
Before a vehicle can be cleared into Ghana, you will need a few mandatory documents e.g Certificates of title (log book or v5), Certificate of retail sales (receipt or invoice), Bill of sales for personal items.
When importing a vehicle into Ghana, you must make sure that the vehicle is less than ten years old otherwise you will incur some penalties i.e 5% of C.I.F value if the vehicle is less upto 12 years old, 20% of C.I.F if the vehicle is over 12 yrs old but less than 15 yrs old. The age of a motor vehicle shall be calculated from the year in which the vehicle was first manufactured.
In Ghana, one is not allowed to Import a Left hand drive car unless they have a letter of approval from the Ministry of finance.
There may be some exceptions to this rule so it is probably best to contact the Ghana customs authorities for more details.

I shipped my Land Cruiser from the UK to Maputo Mozambique with Anon Shipping company and the company arranged the pick up from Nottingham, to the port, into the ship and to Maputo without any issues. Andrew was helpful in giving details on when the next ship was leaving the UK and making arrangment for the truck to be picked up. I have recommended Anon shippers to a few friends who want to ship cars from the UK. Good job Anon.
