• Import Duty for passenger cars with diesel engines is set at a flat rate of 120% of CIF.

It should be noted that the declared valued of a vehicle need not necessarily be accepted by the Customs Dept which has its own method of determining the Open Market Value (OMV) for a specific model. If a vehicle's value, as declared by the importer, is considered too low, the OMV can be applied for purposes of determining import duty payable.
