South Sudan Roadworthiness


This contracted assignment with the South Sudan National Bureau of Standards involves the conducting of pre- export road worthiness inspection of new and used motor vehicles from Japan, UK, Singapore, UAE and South Africa, destined for use within the Republic of South Sudan.
This enables only roadworthy and environmentally friendly vehicles to enter the country, thereby ensuring that South Sudan does not become a dumping ground for poor quality vehicles.
Right-hand and Left-hand drive vehicles are allowed into South Sudan (except for buses can only be left-hand drive). While there is currently no age restriction for used vehicles imported into South Sudan, a pre-shipment roadworthiness inspection is required for all new and used vehicle imports.

• The vehicle must pass the mandated roadworthiness inspection, and this includes the use of calibrated equipment for testing of braking systems, side-slip, radiation levels, emissions and lighting etc. Please note that new vehicle consignments require completion of a specific "new" vehicle booking form. Click here
• There is currently no age restriction applied for vehicle imports into South Sudan.
• Right-hand drive and Left-hand drive vehicles can be imported. (Except Buses must only be Left-hand drive).
• Should the pre-shipment inspection not be completed prior to the vehicle export, SSNBS will impose a penalty of 20% of the CIF value of the vehicle, in addition to the full cost of an inspection in South Sudan.
• Vehicles detected with odometer tampering will be rejected and cannot be imported into South Sudan.
