IMPORTING CARS TO THAILAND PERMANENT OR TEMPORARY

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BUT DO NOT ASK US TO ASSIST. WE CAN CLEAR FOR YOU BUT IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO FOLLOW THE BELOW RULES. WE CAN GIVE ESTIMATED COSTS ON CLEARING ONLY NOT CUSTOMS

  

Importing a car into Thailand, whether new or used, for personal use or for sale, you must pay taxes and duties. For all foreigners before writing to us the duty and tax on used vehicles is approx 188% min. If you value your car at $2000 it does not necessarily mean your duty will be less as Thai Customs will value on their rates only.

Used vehicles are restricted goods and generally not allowed for importation into Thailand, except for temporary imports as mentioned above or imports under the conditions specified by the Ministry of Commerce.Importer will need to obtain an "Import Permit" from the Ministry of Commerce. Each scheme has its own specific requirements. It is important that the importer should find out whether he can meet those requirements before committing.

TEMPORARY IMPORT of vehicles into THAILAND

Temporary imports of personal vehicles are vehicles e.g. a motor vehicle, motorcycle, yacht, sports boat, or fishing vessel, brought into Thailand by residents of another country, usually for a maximum of six months, while remaining registered in its country of origin. Tourists/travelers may import personal vehicles into Thailand without payment of taxes and duties provided that they enter Thailand for a short visit and intend to take the vehicles from Thailand at the conclusion of the visit.

To facilitate tax and duty free entry of the personal vehicles, the tourists/travelers are required to place a cash deposit or bank guarantee covering the full amount of liable taxes and duties with Customs. The deposits will be refunded when the vehicles, all fittings and accessories imported with the personal vehicles are exported within the time limits of temporary entry.

Prior to importation, importers are required to closely follow Customs’ regulations and conditions on temporary imports of personal vehicles.
