Hello everyone. I am a journalist soon to be relocating from Los Angeles CA to Tangier, Morocco. I would like to know the most efficient way of shipping my car to Morocco and what is the best way to avoid dramatic import fees!

Hi There,
Before you even think about arranging transport for your car, you need to be aware of the following:

As a foreigner, you are not permitted to import a car into Morocco, which is more than 5 years old, on a permanent basis. You would only be allowed to keep it in the country for 6 months in a single year.
It is absolutely not possible to avoid what are extremely high import duties. You would also need to re-register your car .
You would also not be permitted to buy a car in Morocco unless you have a Residency Permit.
I know that the above sends a very negative message, but I went through this scenario myself a couple of years ago; it was a very painful & ultimately negative experience!
I would strongly advise that you gain a better understanding of Moroccan culture & society before you arrive; it is so very different from the US.
