We have a growing presence in the Botswana market, and we are planning to get even bigger. Keep an eye out for our adverts which will be appearing in local newspapers soon. It certainly seems to be getting more and more popular to import Japanese vehicles into Botswana, and we can provide you with just about any Japanese vehicle you may want.

Importing into Botswana is very easy and there are no major restrictions. Please see below for more info:

Recommended ports

Durban is by far the most convenient port for Botswana. There are at least 2 car carrier ships leaving every month for Durban, and it takes 3 to 4 weeks to get there from Japan.

Clearance and delivery from the destination port

Click here for a list of customs clearance agents in Durban. It isn't possible to drive imported vehicles on South African roads so your Customs Clearance Agent will deliver your vehicle up to Botswana for you.

Inspections and local regulations

There are no specific regulations regarding Japanese vehicles, however be sure to check with your local authorities before making a purchase.

Why buy direct from Japan?

Batswana are increasingly choosing to buy directly from Japan because quite simply you will be getting a better quality vehicle, with a lower mileage at a cheaper price. Vehicles made in Japan often have the highest grade options fitted as standard. We estimate that when you add everything up you will be saving at least $1000 compared with a similar quality vehicle bought locally.
