The Ban is sequel to a Presidential Directive restricting all vehicle
imports to Nigeria Sea Ports only. The order takes effect from 1st
January 2017.

The restriction on importation of vehicles follows
that of Rice, whose imports have been banned through the land Borders
since April 2016.

Importers of vehicles through the land borders are requested to utilize
the grace period up till 31st December 2016 to clear their vehicle
imports landed in neighbouring Ports.
