South African vehicle in Kenya. Police clearance and storage
Putting out some questions here hoping someone can enlighten me:
I have a South African registered car which I drove up from Cape Town to Nairobi, Kenya, and now that I'm officially broke I need to sell the car and fly back to Norway. However, navigating the import/export rules and regulations of this continent is a nightmare and I'm stuck:
Is it possible to obtain a police clearance certificate for this car when I'm not in South Africa? Does anyone know anything about this? I have tried contacting South Africa but it takes forever to get any kind of answer, so hopefully someone here know.
Since I have a feeling that I'll never be able to get the required documents needed to sell the car here I'm looking into storage and I'm wondering:
What happens if I leave the car here, come back in six months and try to cross the border with an expired Temporary Import Permit? And how would I go about extending this permit?
Thank you for your time!
