There is no specific inspection carried out on used vehicles imported in Myanmar.


Importation of Vehicle

The owner can import their used vehicles to Myanmar during his/her assignment here with diplomatic status. Before shipment arrival, the /UN Office/Embassy has to apply the MoFA customs clearance certificate with B/L, car's invoice for duty-free entry. It takes nearly 3-5 weeks from MoFA Office at Nay Pyi Taw. 

We have secondary chance to customs clear the vehicle with special order formalities to avoid port storage and demurrage. The supporting documents can be supply to local office for necessary preparation.

Our estimation time of customs clearance and delivery with S/O formality took nearly 7 days or more upon arrival of the container at Yangon Port. With MoFA Certificate, it takes around 7 days only.

Vehicles that are shipped to Myanmar are shipped to Maritime Port of Yangon.

There are two ways of shipping of used vehicles; container shipping and Roll on Roll off (RORO).
