One Week Left To Order Your 2012-2014 Car Import

Don't miss the boat, MHH International
The window to import a car older than 5 years is closing very fast. The deadline for 2012 – 2014 cars to be imported has been set as 1st July 2019. After then car imports must be 5 years or younger. So, if you have been planning on importing a 6 / 7 year old car, you have just this week to buy it from the UK or Japan to be sure the boat will reach Mombasa ahead of the deadline.

If you are able to pay with cash, then the process for selecting and paying for your car usually take 5-10 days. If you are hoping to buy your car import with asset finance, be aware that applications can take one to two weeks. We estimate 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.
