How to bring your car to Cameroon

Hello everybody,

If you exported your car to Cameroon, 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 Cameroon?

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

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

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

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!


Hi There, depends on where you travel from.. I moved from Holland to Cameroon so it was easy to send via shipping my car from Holland  or Belgium..
It is better to travel with a vehicle you know and trust because you may find it difficult to deal with repairs and damages of second hand car in Cameroon. It is also possible to buy a car in Cameroon but be careful and get advices from dealers if possible
