How to bring your car to Haiti

Hello everybody,

If you exported your car to Haiti, were there any formalities that needed to be completed beforehand? What were they?

What is the best way to export your car? Is there a limit on the number of vehicles, or perhaps the age of the vehicle? Are there limits on emissions or emission controls in Haiti?

What are the expected costs of exporting a car? In your opinion, is it worth it?

Once you arrived in Haiti, what were the applicable taxes? What was the customs process like?

How do you go about registering an imported car in Haiti?

Is it best to buy a car once you have arrived or to bring your car with you, in your opinion?

We look forward to hearing from you!


What area are you going to be staying in.  It is hard to own a car and drive it in Port-Au-Prince.  Plus it is cheaper and faster to just use moto, tap tap and taxi's.
