    Kenya Car Import FAQ

    Kenya inspects all used cars imported to the country for roadworthiness, safety, and other requirements. All used cars must meet these requirements, whether for diplomats, returning residents, or public servants. Before exporting any car to Kenya, the car must have a certificate provided by QISJ. Kenya Bureau of Standards has authorized QISJ to insect cars that get into the country. We will make arrangements to ensure that QISJ inspects your car and the certificate emailed to you after the completion of the inspection. The inspection costs £200, which is paid directly to QISJ. However, we can include the cost of our invoice.

    Kenya does not allow left hand driven vehicles unless they are means for special purposes such as ambulances, fire tenders, or large construction vehicles. The left hand-driven vehicles are often donated to the government.

    Some of the documents that are needed include passport or residence permit, import license, logbook or registration freight documents, invoice or agreement of sale, and insurance documents. The Import license is only needed when you have owned the vehicle six months before its importation.

    It takes approximately 27 days from the departure for any commodity to reach Kenya from the UK by ship.
