NEW REQUIREMENT FOR ORIGINAL LOGBOOK IN CLEARING CARS IN WALVIS BAY-NAMIBIA

Shipping cars to Namibia; Clearing Cars in Walvis Bay; Namibia, Namibia car clearing, Namibia clearing agents,IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
With effect from 11th June; 2012, original vehicle registration books (LOGBOOKS) commonly referred to as V5 in United Kingdom will be required as part of the customs clearance in Namibia.
This was announced on the 1st of June, 2012 by   Namibia's Ministry of Finance- Customs and Excise's Deputy Director General- Western Region YHM HAIHAMBO.

WHY IS ORIGINAL LOGBOOK NOW REQUIRED IN NAMIBIA?
According to the Customs and Excise department in Namibia, wrong year and models are being declared on the SAD 500 . This gives raise to possible undervaluation of cars. If cars are undervalued, there will be a need to revalue the car. However, this process is not as simply as it appears. It means all documentation has to be resubmitted. This is time consuming and it ties up resources. When such delays are experienced, most customers suffer as the correction process my take anything between 24-72hrs. During this re-evaluation of the SAD 500, there may be possibilities of vehicle owners incurring costs due to extended stay in Walvis. Usually after 72hrs, Namibian Port Authority starts to charge storage fees. It is therefore important to get this part of vehicle clearance right so that there are no inconveniences.

WHAT MUST YOU DO NOW?
In order to avoid delays associated with submitting incorrect documentation, you need to do the following:
  • Choose a competent and knowledgeable shipping company (freight forwarder) from the departure destination. This does not necessarily mean the cheapest or the most expensive. A knowledgeable and competent shipper (freight forwarder)  will give you information well in advance so that you avoid making wrong and expensive decision.
  •  Find out if the shipping company will be able to support you with clearance process in Namibia  and Botswana or Zimbabwe, depending on where your final destination is.

For Namibia, does the logbook have to be in the name of the receiver in namibia, or can it be in the name of the sender (the one selling to the receiver)

As far as we are aware, the logbook is used for the purpose stated in the post. It is used to verify and identify the vehicle age and particulars at Walvis Bay. It does not matter in whose name the logbook is. I hope this clarifies the issue for everyone.

Hi Godfrey, Thank you. I have bookmarked your site since it provides valuable information and your's seem to be a company that organizes most of the logistics required in relocating vehicles, which gives me peace of mind. This "logbook"- is it something that a seller would need to provide?
