Shipping and Removals in Zambia

Shipping in Zambia can be unreliable, therefore it's worth paying extra for an international firm. As Zambia is a landlocked country, it is also worth paying the premium for air freight as shipping entails transporting one's goods from the nearest port. The subsequent land journey to Zambia is seldom without incident.

In case of any incidents, it's best to arrange insurance ahead of time, preferably with a company different to the one doing the shipping. This allows maximum transparency and accountability.

To ship one's items, extensive documentation is required. Certain items may be subject to import duty.

For those who don't want to leave their pets behind, it is possible to bring animals into Zambia. Provided that certain conditions are met, there will be no quarantine period. A health certificate from a licensed vet must be obtained in order to show that vaccinations are up to date and that the animal is free of diseases such as rabies. In addition, any pets entering Zambia must be microchipped.
