Canadian registered vehicle to Europe and Africa, what is needed?
We have a Canadian registered (British Columbia) Toyota Land Cruiser that we've traveled with in Central America for the past 5 years while we were working there. We are now planning to work for an NGO in Sierra Leone and we'd like to take the truck with us. The plan is to ship from New Jersey, USA to Bremerhaven, Germany and then drive down.
What is needed as far as paperwork is concerned? We'd like to avoid a carnet as we'll be in Sierra Leone long term (probably get registration there).
We'll first be in Europe of course and then traveling south through to Spain, crossing to Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea and Sierra Leone (or another route if carnets are required from any of these countries).
We've traveled extensively through Central America and are familiar with the procedures there but Africa is new to us and Europe is new in our vehicle.
