Final Days To Order Your 2012-2014 Car Import

Don't miss the boat, MHH International
The government is planning on reducing the age of cars being imported to Kenya to 5 year old cars or younger.

 

Press suggests the deadline for 2012 – 2014 cars to be imported will be enforced from 1st July 2019. After then car imports must be 5 years or younger. The budget will be read for this in mid June to confirm this. But if you have been planning on importing a 6 / 7 year old car, you have just a few days left to buy it from the UK or Japan to be sure the boat will reach Mombasa ahead of the deadline. 

To avoid getting caught out we recommend that all cars must depart on a boat by w/c 13th May.

Be sure you don’t miss the boat. Call our experienced car import team today to make sure you buy your import in time to reach Mombasa before the 1st July.    

These deadlines are best information we have based on the recent press articles (see below). These may be subject to change.
