Burundi

Burundi is a landlocked country in east-central Africa with an area of 27,830 sq km (10,745 sq mi), of which about 7% consists of lakes. Comparatively, the area occupied by Burundi is slightly smaller than the state of Maryland. It extends 263 km (163 mi) NNE–SSW and 194 km (121 mi) ESE–WNW. Burundi is bounded on the N by Rwanda, on the E and S by Tanzania, and on the W by the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DROC), with a total boundary length of 974 km (605 mi).

Burundi Vehicle Information

Burundi’s rudimentary public transportation system makes a dependable personally owned vehicle a necessity. Burundi, Rwanda, and Zaire use left-hand drive vehicles, but right-hand drive vehicles are permitted. A valid driver license is the only requirement of obtaining a license to drive in Burundi. Post personnel may import one duty-free vehicle per family. Predominant types of vehicles include Toyota, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Mercedes, Volkswagon, Land or Range Rovers, and Hyundai. Regular gasoline costs about $2.75 a gallon, and there is no unleaded diesel readily available.

Purchasing a vehicle locally is much more expensive than in the U.S. The primary factor in choosing a vehicle is availability of service and spare parts. Peugeot and Toyota probably offer the best prospects for spare parts availability. Secondary factors include durability, high ground clearance for rough roads, and resale value. Manual transmission is highly recommended, as parts and trained service personnel are virtually nonexistent for automatic transmissions.

Cars should be equipped with heavy-duty suspension, cooling systems, and batteries, and tube-type tires. Air-conditioning is a welcome feature, but not essential. Ship an adequate supply of oil, gas, and air filters; oil, brake and transmission fluids; fan belts, windshield wipers, spark plugs and bulbs and fuses. This will simplify maintenance and reduce costs.

Local resale value is higher than in the U.S., except for vehicles with automatic transmission. Resale premiums are higher for makes listed above and for four-door versus two-door models.

Aside from the usual documents (registration, serial number, etc.) owner’s original purchase price documentation is especially important both for initial entry through customs and for local resale requirements. Customs clearance requires a horsepower rating. Do not include CB radio or any other transmitter in the car. Burundi customs procedures may take longer than many other posts, so send ahead documents and one set of keys as early as possible.

Some employees bring used American makes with extra spare parts and have no serious problems. Four-wheel-drive vehicles are popular in Burundi, as they provide off-road capability and high-ground clearance for rough roads.

Roads within Bujumbura range from bad to worse. However good, paved roads extend to Bukavu (Zaire) and Kigali (Rwanda). Within the country, good, paved roads extend to Gitega, Source du Nil, Nyanza Lac, Muramvya, Kayanza, and Ngozi. Other roads are unpaved, but passable.

Rwanda

Thailand top new and used car 4x4 vigo triton exporter to RwandaRwanda, a landlocked country in east-central Africa, has an area of 26,338 sq km (10,170 sq mi), extending 248 km (154 mi) NE– SW and 166 km (103 mi) SE–NW. Comparatively, the area occupied by Rwanda is slightly smaller than the state of Maryland. It is bordered on the N by Uganda, on the E by Tanzania, on the S by Burundi, and on the W and NW by the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DROC—the former Zaire), with a total boundary length of 893 km (555 mi).

Rwanda is the most densely populated country on the continent. The capital, Kigali, is a small city located in the heart of the country. Despite its proximity to the Equator, Kigali's altitude of approximately 4,800 feet ensures a temperate climate throughout the year.

The Republic of Rwanda is located along the Great Rift Valley in the mountains of east central Africa and covers 10,169 square miles, 4,587 sq. miles of which is water. Slightly smaller than the state of Maryland, Rwanda is circular in shape. The eastern boundary is shared with Tanzania; Uganda lies to the north; the west borders the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire) and Lake Kivu; Burundi lies to the south. The western edge of the country along the Congo/Nile watershed rises steeply, formed by a chain of volcanoes called the Virunga Mountains. It is here that the country's highest point, the volcano Karisimbi at an elevation of 14,782 feet, is found. Gisenyi, a town at the northern end of Lake Kivu, enjoys spectacular vistas of the surrounding volcanoes. Rwanda’s green valleys produce beans, sorghum, corn, manioc, Irish potatoes, rice, sweet potatoes, soybeans, bananas, coffee, and tea.

Rwanda's import duties average ??  per cent and range from a low of 2 per cent to a high of 32 per cent.  Rwanda also applies other duties and charges such as /service centers in Bissau, although service and parts availability for those models are patchy. Maintenance and repair facilities are limited both in expertise and availability of parts.

Leaded gasoline and diesel fuel are reliably available in the capital and generally available in country’s interior. Because octane ratings are not high, the performance of engines designed for premium gasoline may suffer. Unleaded gasoline is not available, so catalytic converters should be removed before shipping vehicles to Guinea-Bissau. Although diesel fuel and leaded gasoline cost roughly the same amount, better fuel efficiency makes diesel engines more economical and a better choice for up-country travel. Fuel theft is not uncommon, so a lockable gas cap is highly recommended.

Undercoating, undercarriage protection, heavy-duty suspensions, and off-road packages are practical options for Rwanda. Tubeless tires can be repaired in the capital city, but inner tubes are recommended for up-country travel. Spare parts can be hard to find. Include in your household effects a good supply of belts, filters, gaskets, hoses, headlights, windshield wipers, fuses, power-steering and brake fluids, spark plugs, a distributor, a condenser, and tires. For up-country travel, bring emergency equipment, such as a strong jack, spare tires, tire pumps, jumper cables, winch or tow ropes, first-aid kit, and racks.

When traveling outside the capital city, four-wheeled drive vehicles are advised because the roads are in disrepair. During the rainy season, many upcountry roads become impassable.

Rwanda does not have many paved roads, including those in the capital city. The remainder is constructed of lateritic soils. These roads are often rough, and in poorly drained areas become impassable quagmires during the 6-month rainy season. In addition, the coastal salt air attacks car finishes, radiators, air-conditioning systems, and the chassis. For these reasons, simple, rugged automobiles, rust proofed and undercoated, and with good ground clearance are recommended.

Heavy-duty springs and shock absorbers are mandatory for up-country travel, as is air-conditioning to provide relief from heat, humidity, and dust. Four-wheel-drive vehicles are recommended. Unleaded gas is not available in Rwanda. Catalytic converters must be removed before shipment or after arrival here.

Rwanda Duties

The tariff is Zambia's main trade policy instrument. Its simple average MFN tariff was almost 14% in 2000/01, down from almost 16% in 1997/98 and 21% in 1996/97.Virtually all tariffs are ad valorem. The tariff structure is escalatory, with six bands; rates of zero or 5% apply to "necessities" and of10% to intermediate goods. The maximum duty rate applied to consumer goods was 25% in 2001.

Import taxes

Rwanda has significantly liberalised its trade regime. In 1999, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), tariffs ranged from 0% to 25%, and from 0% to 60% from 1995 to 1997. Consequently, the average tariff rate has declined from 31.9% in 1995 to 11.3% in 1999. The IMF reports that there are no significant non-tariff barriers and that, overall, Rwanda's progression in trade liberalisation has been faster than most sub-Saharan African countries. As a result of the drop in the tariff rate and the evidence that non-tariff barriers have been eliminated, Rwanda's trade policy score is 2 points better in 2001 as compared to 2000.

Consumption taxes

VAT applied on goods import :

  • Standard rate : The standard tax rate is 18% to all taxable goods and services.
  • Reduced rate : As for goods or services consumed by privileged persons, the VAT rate is fixed at 0%. This is meant to ensure that any VAT paid by those persons as part of the purchase price is refundable. Rwanda Revenue Authority refunds the VAT.

    The privileged persons include those with diplomatic status; it also includes those dealing in exports as well as donor-funded projects run under an agreement between the Government of Rwanda and the donor.

Eritrea

Thailand top new and used car 4x4 vigo triton exporter to EritreaEritrea is located in eastern Africa. The area occupied by Eritrea is slightly larger than the state of Pennsylvania with a total area of 121,320 sq km (46,842 sq mi). Eritrea shares boundaries with the Red Sea on the NE, Djibouti on the SE, Ethiopia on the S, and Sudan on the W, and has a total land boundary of 1,626 km (1,010 mi) and a coastline of 2,234 km (1,388 mi).

No restrictions are placed on the age, color, or make of automobiles that may be brought into Djibouti. The vehicle must be Left Hand Drive though. Djibouti's import duties average ??  per cent and range from a low of 2 per cent to a high of 32 per cent.  Djibouti also applies other duties and charges such as /service centers in Bissau, although service and parts availability for those models are patchy. Maintenance and repair facilities are limited both in expertise and availability of parts.

Include in your household effects a good supply of belts, filters, gaskets, hoses, headlights, windshield wipers, fuses, power-steering and brake fluids, spark plugs, a distributor, a condenser, and tires. For up-country travel, bring emergency equipment, such as a strong jack, spare tires, tire pumps, jumper cables, winch or tow ropes, first-aid kit, and racks.

Eritrea does not have many paved roads, including those in the capital city. The remainder is constructed of lateritic soils. These roads are often rough, and in poorly drained areas become impassable quagmires during the 6-month rainy season. In addition, the coastal salt air attacks car finishes, radiators, air-conditioning systems, and the chassis. For these reasons, simple, rugged automobiles, rust proofed and undercoated, and with good ground clearance are recommended.

Heavy-duty springs and shock absorbers are mandatory for up-country travel, as is air-conditioning to provide relief from heat, humidity, and dust. Four-wheel-drive vehicles are recommended. Unleaded gas is not available in Eritrea. Catalytic converters must be removed before shipment or after arrival here.Four-wheel drive vehicles is preferred although regular sedans are adequate for driving on Djibouti City’s mostly paved roads. High ground clearance and four-wheel drive are necessary for trips to beaches or into the interior. Four-wheel drive is also useful for in-town driving after rains, which generally cause some flooding of roads. Light colored vehicles are recommended to deflect Djibouti’s intense sunlight.

Unleaded gasoline is available in Djibouti. Diesel fuel is less expensive than gasoline; both are available in the capital, but only diesel is available in the interior. Gasoline is not high octane, so the performance of engines designed for premium gasoline may suffer. Since 2004 there has been no importation of leaded gasoline into the country. Unleaded is 91 octane.

Djibouti’s salty and often humid air is highly corrosive, making rustproofing and undercoating highly recommended. Off-road packages or heavy-duty suspensions are also practical options. Traffic in Djibouti moves on the right (American) side of the road.

Many Japanese makes (Toyota, Isuzu, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Daihatsu, and Suzuki), as well as Peugeot, have representatives in Djibouti. No American manufacturers are represented. Competent mechanics can be found, although quality of service varies and spare parts for even the most common makes and models are not readily available so we recommend that you order most used spare parts along with the vehicle. Labor and parts are expensive. Mechanics are most familiar with Japanese and American makes.

You should order belts, filters, gaskets, hoses, windshield wipers, fuses, power-steering and brake fluids, spark plugs, and a foot or electric tire pump along with your vehicle. Emergency equipment, such as spare tires, jacks, repair kits, and tow ropes, is recommended for out-of-town trips. Jerry cans and racks are useful for bringing gasoline and water on trips into the interior.

A standard economy car is adequate for Asmara and main paved roads. Any real exploration of the countryside, however, requires a four-wheel-drive with good clearance. Air-conditioning is not needed in Asmara, but is important for lowland travel. European and Japanese cars prevail; repair services exist, but the right spare parts cannot always be found. Diesel fuel and regular gasoline are available, but there is no high-octane or unleaded gasoline in the country.

Eritrea Custom Duties

You cannot import a vehicle older than 10 years old. Eritrea is planning an ambitious but much needed tax and customs reform, which would, among other aims, reduce the number of tariff rates from 12 to three, and lower the maximum tariff from 200% to 25%. Customs duties on capital goods and raw materials will increase from 2% to 5% and excise taxes on luxury goods will be abolished. Custom Duty on cars is around 200% but that may come down to 25% if the new reforms are enacted
