in need of import tax info
A small group of us are planing on taking the atlantic route down the Gambia (though I'll be happy if we make it to Nouakcott). We are trying to raise money for 2 local hospice's.

The plan is to sell the cars there and fly back to the UK. We are having trouble finding out import tax for the vehicals, and if theres anyway round it.

Any Help would be much appriciated.

Gambia does not stamp the details of your vehicle into your passport. Instead you will be issued with a temporary import permit at the border. You can easily leave the country by air, without customs being aware of your departure.

I dont have any information on the procedure for a local subsequently permanently importing your vehicle, although assumedly they will need your TIP and vehicle documents.

Try the organisers of the Plymouth - Banjul rally for more info, as they must be aware of how to minimise any duties on the sale of the vehicles after their rally.
