Finance Ministry issues new decisions on expatriate cars

October 13, 2021

On Tuesday, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning issued new decisions aimed at dealing with the clearance of cars of both expatriates and citizens affected by the abolition of the customs dollar.

Last June, Sudan abolished dealing with the customs exchange rate used in calculating import duties, as a last step in the process of devaluing its local currency.

According to a statement issued by the Minister of Finance, Jibreel Ibrahim, the decision includes expatriates who meet the conditions for final return on or before July 31, 2021.

The entitlement is granted to the expatriate after presenting documents supporting the dropping of the plates from the expatriate country, provided that the vehicle is a 2021 model for personal use and that the bill of shipping is on or before June 7, 2021.

When calculating customs duties, the Ministry of Finance decided to increase the vehicle depreciation rate to 20% for models from 2016, 2017, and 2018, and by 25% for models from 2019, 2020, and 2021.

The decision includes exempting the beneficiaries from port and floor fees, exempting the model fine and FBS tax, and extending the installment period for those who started their procedures according to the authority of the head of the customs authority.

The decision pointed out that dealing with temporary release vehicles, transit vehicles, unlicensed vehicles, and commercial vehicles for citizens is carried out in accordance with the rules and principles for each category in the jurisdiction.

Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok directed the Ministry of Commerce to conduct treatments for the effects of its decision to ban the import of small cars for expatriates.
