if you bought the car in Uganda or Tanzania you can just drive across the border.
that was easy one, lakini i went with the detail or lack of it from your question.
i.e are u importing this car from UG/TZ?

Import Duty: 25% of the CIF value of the vehicle ($1200)
Excise Duty: 20% of the (CIF value + Import Duty) ($1300)
VAT: 16% of the (CIF value + Import Duty + Excise Duty) ($1232)
IDF: 2.25% of the CIF value or Ksh. 5,000, whichever is higher, is payable ($117)

Your duty will be $3849.. Basically it will be approximately 74% of CIF

@mjamaa,depends on the make of the vehicle. these days they have standard duty amounts for specific makes and age. your $5,200 buying price may not assist much.other charges will however include pre shipment inspection, kebs, port charges, clearing, registration, kitu kidogo, etc

Work with 100% of CIF value and you wont be caught with your pants down. The make is also important you dint say what it is.
