Vehicles may not be more than 5 years old.

Vehicles should not be shipped until the client is in possession of an import permit.

The client must complete all documentation and present it to the customs department together with his passport so that customs can attest the CA304a. Customs will only release the vehicle once it is satisfied that everything is in order, and the engine number agrees with that stated on the bill of entry. Once the bill of entry has been endorsed by customs, this document must be presented to the motor license department who will issue the license.

In addition, the shipper should have been the owner of a vehicle for twelve (12) months or more before importing the vehicle to Namibia, otherwise duties and taxes will be applicable. Imported vehicles may only be sold in Namibia after twenty-four months after the date of importation.
