Changes in International Shipping Laws

For those international car shipping companies shipping cars overseas to Nigeria, please be advised that beginning May 1st, 2014; there will be a change in the law for Shipping Cars to Nigeria. Nigerian Customs will require a more detailed manifest on each vehicle imported into Nigeria.

Here is the additional information that will be required:

  • Chassis Number
  • Model & Make of Vehicle
  • Year of Manufacture
  • VIN number (Vehicle Identification Number)

Also, please note that only vehicles 15 years old or newer will be allowed into Nigeria.

We will do our best to ensure that this will be a smooth transition. If you would like to receive immediate updates on changes within the shipping industry please subscribe to our newsletter and always remember to take advantage of our instant international car shipping quote.
