Of the 21 cars, 19 bore Tanzanian and Ugandan number plates and were found in Mombasa town and the other two in Lunga Lunga.
If found to be more than eight years old, the cars will be crushed.
“The vehicles were seized over the weekend in a swoop conducted by KRA enforcement units in the entire Coast Region,” deputy commissioner, southern region Nicholas Kinoti said during a presser.
The owners are expected to provide the proper documents; custom form C-32, logbook and passport and pay the required taxes for the cars within 30 days.
KRA officials also noted that there are in fact crushed cars at the port of Mombasa, including those imported exceeding the 8 year limit from the date of manufacture.
