Located on the west coast of Africa, Liberia has an area of about 111,370 sq km (43,000 sq mi), with a length of 548 km (341 mi) ESE–WNW and a width of 274 km (170 mi) NNE–SSW. Comparatively, the area occupied by Liberia is slightly larger than the state of Tennessee. On the N it is bounded by Guinea, on the E by Côte d'Ivoire, on the S and SW by the Atlantic Ocean, and on the NW by Sierra Leone, with a total land boundary length of 1,585 km (985 mi) and a coastline of 579 km (360 mi).
Liberia's import duties average ?? per cent and range from a low of 2 per cent to a high of 32 per cent. Liberia also applies other duties and charges such as /service centers in Bissau, although service and parts availability for those models are patchy. Maintenance and repair facilities are limited both in expertise and availability of parts.
Leaded gasoline and diesel fuel are reliably available in the capital and generally available in country’s interior. Because octane ratings are not high, the performance of engines designed for premium gasoline may suffer. Unleaded gasoline is not available, so catalytic converters should be removed before shipping vehicles to Guinea-Bissau. Although diesel fuel and leaded gasoline cost roughly the same amount, better fuel efficiency makes diesel engines more economical and a better choice for up-country travel. Fuel theft is not uncommon, so a lockable gas cap is highly recommended.
Undercoating, undercarriage protection, heavy-duty suspensions, and off-road packages are practical options for Liberia. Tubeless tires can be repaired in the capital city, but inner tubes are recommended for up-country travel. Spare parts can be hard to find. Include in your household effects a good supply of belts, filters, gaskets, hoses, headlights, windshield wipers, fuses, power-steering and brake fluids, spark plugs, a distributor, a condenser, and tires. For up-country travel, bring emergency equipment, such as a strong jack, spare tires, tire pumps, jumper cables, winch or tow ropes, first-aid kit, and racks.
When traveling outside Monrovia, four-wheeled drive vehicles are advised because the roads are in disrepair. During the rainy season, many upcountry roads become impassable.
Union Economique et Monétaire Ouest Africaine (UEMOA) is a grouping of the following Francophone countries that was established by a Treaty signed in January 1994: Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo. In May 1997, Guinea-Bissau became its eighth member state. UEMOA is a customs union and a monetary union between some of the members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). In addition to those in UEMOA, ECOWAS comprises Cape Verde, the Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone (15 member countries in total).
The founder members of the East African Community Customs Union are Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. In December 2006, Burundi and Rwanda were admitted into the Union. Members of COMESA are Angola, Burundi, Comoros, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sudan, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Finally, SADC comprises Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Even though 95% of Liberian population is composed of ethnic Liberians the government was dominated by descendents of African Americans who went back to Africa to create their own country. In 1847, Liberia became the first African republic when it declared its independence, from the founding American societies and adopted a constitution based on the U.S. model. The dominant True Whig Party comprised of Americo-Liberians ruled virtually uncontested until, 1980, when the government was overthrown by a group of noncommissioned officers led by Master Sergeant Samuel K. Doe, an indigenous Krahn. What followed by a brief rule by native Liberians followed by decades long Civil War. Things are just beginning to return to normalcy. Lebanese and Indian merchants dominate the commercial sector.
Liberia is a founding member of both the regional economic trading blocs: the Mano River Union (with neighboring Sierra Leone and Guinea), and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which contributed over 10,000 soldiers from 10 member countries through its military arm, ECOMOG, to help provide security in Liberia during the civil war.
Liberia has only about 400 miles of paved roads, including those in Monrovia. The remainder is constructed of lateritic soils. These roads are often rough, and in poorly drained areas become impassable quagmires during the 6-month rainy season. In addition, the coastal salt air attacks car finishes, radiators, air-conditioning systems, and the chassis. For these reasons, simple, rugged automobiles, rust proofed and undercoated, and with good ground clearance are recommended.
Heavy-duty springs and shock absorbers are mandatory for up-country travel, as is air-conditioning to provide relief from heat, humidity, and dust. Four-wheel-drive vehicles are recommended. Unleaded gas is not available in Liberia. Catalytic converters must be removed before shipment or after arrival at post.
Liberia Customs Duty
Import and sale of used car can only be done by Liberians.
In Liberia, Customs do not have ASYCUDA or an automated system; Customs Officers carry out their duty manually. Customs Collectorates lack electricity, telecommunication, and other relevant infrastructures which are very essential for an automated system.
All declarations are handled manually on an entry or Single Administrative Document (SAD), which facilitate the movement of goods from the port of entry upon payment of duty. Below is the standard procedure for the declaration of goods in Liberia:
Importation of goods is based on presentation of the following documents:
- Original Commercial Invoice/airway bill
- Original bill of lading
- Certificate of Origin
- Sales confirmation
- Import Permit Declaration (IPD)
- Packing List
- BIVAC Clean Report of Finding
A Customs Entry is prepared and commercial documents are attached. Under the commodity Team concept, the entry is sent to the In-gate Officer by the importer. The In-gate Officer places an entry number; entry goes to Chief Ministerial for distribution. If entry requires examination, it is sent from In-gate Officer to Senior Collector for stamping, and onwards to the Examination Section. At this Section, Customs requires an importer to make declaration, followed by commercial documents such as delivery order, packing list, invoice, insurance certificate, Import Permit Declaration (IPD) and BIVAC Clean Report of Finding. Physical Examination is conducted, keep accurate tally on category of goods, check packing list, invoice against physical quantity of goods, take sample of goods, other than goods declared on entry and commercial documents and a Comprehensive examination report is prepared.
The Freeport of Monrovia and the Roberts International Airport contribute 98% to customs revenue.
THE ROLE OF BIVAC
The Bureau of Veritas (email : BivacLiberia@yahoo.com ) or Bivac for short is an institution contracted by the Ministry of Finance for the inspection of cargoes coming in and going out of the country. They authenticate the actual duty payment as well as the quantity and quality of the cargoes while entering and leaving the country.With imports, if this inspection is not done at the country of origin, a fine of 10% of the CIF value is added to the duty charged. If there is a second offence it becomes 20% that will be added to the duty.
Meanwhile, findings from this inspection are sent back to the local office of BIVAC at the country of origin, including a copy of invoice and address of the consignor/shipper to authenticate the information. Whenever a discrepancy is noticed, a non-negotiable Clean Report of Findings (CRF) is forwarded back to the destination country and based on the level of the discrepancy a penalty in form of a fine is levied on the consignee.
REASON FOR PSI
The reason for PSI (Pre-shipment Inspection) is to authenticate the cost, quantity, and value of the cargo so that the actual duty can be charged. This is documented as the Clean Report of Findings (CRF) which is important in avoiding some other procedures that could prolong the clearing process.
The National Port Authority has established a "ONE STOP SHOP" information office called the "Cargo Clearing Procedures Office" that will respond to the many questions from consignees on the clearing process. We can be reached at Tel # 231-6-402-906 and email- firstname.lastname@example.org.

Exporting from Asia can be tricky as auto exporters and car exporters are dime a dozen. The stereotype of used car salesman is universal and based on some truth. With the advent of Internet the crooks have come out of the woodworks to separate the innocent from their money, Thailand, Singapore, Dubai and United Kingdom are no exception. Caveat emptor - buyer beware - maxim has been heeded by businessmen since the time of the Ancients but it is most relevant when all it takes is a DSL modem, a nerdy kit with some HTML skills to put together a website, some Images (Pics) taken at your competitor's lots and you are in business. We have seen a parade of newbie auto exporters come in, offer great deals for a year or so perpetrating an elaborate Ponzi scheme and then disappear with millions of dollars of their customers very hard earned money. Will you trust a company that has been in business for 1 year or one that has been in business for 100 years and is well respected not only all over Asia but also beyond Asian boundaries. If someone offers you a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Not all new entrants are crooks but there are some who in their quest for the fast buck wants to cut corners at the expense of the customer.
