How to bring your car to Mali

Hello everybody,

If you exported your car to Mali, 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 Mali?

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

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

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

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!


It is best to contact a local shipping company as they are familiar on the way the get the car registered for you.
the rules are almost never respected. so you better off directly negociating with a locale "transitaire"
