Bangladesh Custom Regulations

Before shipping a car, it would be advisable to look into matters concerning the problems that could arise when the vehicle reaches Bangladesh. Being thoroughly prepared for the formalities involved would reduce the stress for import of cars. Does the car need any physical changes to conform to the local standards? What taxes have to be paid? Is it worthwhile taking a car to Bangladesh? International car shipping means transportation of your vehicles especially your car. Our international car shipping company normally follows the actual route for shipping a car to Bangladesh. Thus, while following the actual route for shipping a car overseas we take the minimal required time to get there.

No importation for vehicles more than four years old in the case of shipment. Used cars should only be imported from the country of origin.

A certificate containing age, model number and chassis number of the used car will have to be submitted to the customs authority.

For determining date/age of the imported used car the date/age will be calculated from the first day of the next year of manufacture of chassis. Ministry of Commerce
