Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta), a landlocked country in West Africa, has an area of 274,200 sq km (105,869 sq mi), with a length of 873 km (542 mi) ENE–WSW and a width of 474 km (295 mi) SSE–NNW. Comparatively, the area occupied by Burkina Faso is slightly larger than the state of Colorado. Bounded on the E by Niger, on the SE by Benin (formerly Dahomey), on the S by Togo, Ghana, and Côte d’Ivoire, and on the W and N by Mali, Burkina Faso has a total boundary length of 3,192 km (1,983 mi).
Burkina Faso, whose name means “country of men with integrity,” sits at the edge of the Sahel in the heart of West Africa. Despite being one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world, the Burkinabe are known for their hospitality. They have very few natural resources but have managed to fashion a pleasant and culturally sophisticated country out of the little that they do have. Burkina Faso, a landlocked country, is located in the middle of West Africa’s “hump.” Covering 274,000 square kilometers, nearly the size of Colorado, Burkina Faso is bordered on the north and west by Mali, on the northeast by Niger, on the southeast by Benin and on the south by Togo, Ghana, and Cote d’Ivoire. Burkina is a savanna plateau, with an average elevation of 500 meters. The highest point is Tenakourou (747 meters), in the west. Burkina Faso’s three main rivers are the Mouhoun, the Nazinou, and the Nakambe, tributaries that form Ghana’s Volta River.
Ouagadougou, the capital, is home to approximately 1 million people and combines modern and traditional Africa, with many paved streets, a commercial center, and many large government buildings. The residential areas contain large shade trees, packed dirt streets, and walled compounds. There are several artificial lakes (barrages) at the edge of Ouagadougou that serve as the towns water reservoirs. Apart from Ouagadougou, principal towns include Bobo-Dioulasso, Koudougou, Ouahigouya, Kaya, Fada N’Gourma, and Banfora.
Since it is a landlocked country it uses ports of Benin, Ghana, Togo and Ivory Coast.
The port of Cotonou serves as a gateway for the sub-region with many goods –- including almost 350,000 used cars per year — arriving destined for Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Niger and other countries in West Africa. Formerly among the best ports in the region in terms of the speed at which cargo is unloaded and clears customs, it has faced increasing delays, blamed in large part on corruption. Average processing time to clear a shipment from the port is two weeks. Cotonou’s Port has therefore lost market to more efficient regional facilities such as the port in neighboring Lomé, Togo. Port authorities, under the leadership of a new director, have recently made efforts to improve the level of service through opening of a guichet unique, a one-stop processing facility to clear goods through the port. A large-scale port security upgrade is also underway. But these measures did not prevent the car dealers’ sales from decreasing from 3 billions CFA to 1 billion.
Unfortunately, a number of Nigerian criminals, increasingly in collusion with Beninese, use Benin as a base to defraud U.S. companies and citizens with “419” scams (e.g. advance fees), so named for the relevant section of Nigerian law. Potential U.S. investors should contact the Economic Section in Cotonou or the Commercial Section in Abidjan before sending any money or products to potential “partners” in Benin or sending “registration” fees to any purported Benin governmental agency.
Vehicle Importing Procedure
Burkina has no special restrictions regarding type, origin, or age of vehicle to be imported. There is a 46.25% duty on vehicles.
Vehicle Importing Tips
4×4 pickups and SUVs make a lot of sense here because of the poor quality of roads even in the capital city. Only about 20% of all roads in Burkina Faso are paved, and the driving conditions are less than ideal even in good weather.
Order extra tires and commonly used spare parts with your vehicle, as parts for most foreign cars are expensive in BF. You will definitely need extra fuel, oil and air filters. Hose and belt sets, spark plugs, wiper blades, motor oil, fuel injector cleaners and gas treatment mixtures, extra jerry cans for gas and water, etc. are also worth considering.
Most dealers prefer containerized consignment on a through-bill of lading for delivery directly to Ouagadougou via the port of Tema in Ghana or Cotonou in Benin.

Exporting from Asia can be tricky as auto exporters and car exporters are dime a dozen. The stereotype of used car salesman is universal and based on some truth. With the advent of Internet the crooks have come out of the woodworks to separate the innocent from their money, Thailand is no exception. Caveat emptor – buyer beware – maxim has been heeded by businessmen since the time of the Ancients but it is most relevant when all it takes is a DSL modem, a nerdy kit with some HTML skills to put together a website, some Images (Pics) taken at your competitor’s lots and you are in business. We have seen a parade of newbie auto exporters come in, offer great deals for a year or so perpetrating an elaborate Ponzi scheme and then disappear with millions of dollars of their customers very hard earned money. Will you trust a company that has been in business for 1 year or one that has been in business for 100 years and is well respected not only all over Asia but also beyond Asian boundaries. If someone offers you a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Not all new entrants are crooks but there are some who in their quest for the fast buck wants to cut corners at the expense of the customer. When you work with Jim you have the peace of mind to know that we have been voted Thailand’s most trusted dealership and Thailand’s most trusted auto exporter five years in a row and it is for this reason that we have over 80% of the auto exporting market share in Thailand.
