Exporting Used Vehicles to Mozambique?

Under Ministerial Diploma 244/2011 every used vehicle imported into Mozambique are subject to a compulsory Pre-Shipment Inspection – PSI (physical inspection performed at origin, prior to the vehicle being shipped to Mozambique).

Exporters are now required to pay $265 + VAT/ Sales Tax (or equivalent) per vehicle towards the cost of the inspection.

If the vehicle arrives in Mozambique without having been inspected it will not clear through Customs and it will then require an inspection at destination. This destination inspection (DI) will take place at the Customs clearance  point and the full costs of a pre-shipment inspection payable. In addition a fine equal to 10% of the CIF value determined by Intertek for Customs purposes will be levied.
