Argentina Vehicle Registration Process | A-1 Auto Transport

There process of registering a vehicle in Argentina can be a little daunting from an outsider perspective. Not only is it expensive to ship a vehicle to Argentina due to the high import taxes, there are a lot of regulations and โ€œhoops to jump throughโ€ that can draw the process out longer than you might be accustomed to. Luckily, if youโ€™re a nonresident visitor, you can register an imported vehicle temporarily, which is a somewhat easier process.

Argentina has a thorough process of registration for imported vehicles that includes testing, certification, and registration in a national vehicle database. There are limitations on the types of vehicles that may be imported into Argentina, especially in regard to certain makes and models of new vehicles. (See resources at the bottom of this page for more information about import restrictions.)

As with most countries, insurance is required if youโ€™ll be driving in Argentina and you may need to have coverage arranged before your vehicle enters the country. You should make sure that you always have proof of insurance in the vehicle when operating it. If thereโ€™s an accident or your stopped by an official, that will likely be one of the first things that you will be asked for. Other items that are required to have in the vehicle include the following:

  • Hazard signs (front & back)
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Medical kit
  • Tow bar & rope
  • Covering sheet

Import Taxes, Insurance Requirements & Driving In Argentina

Import taxes in Argentina have gone up considerably in recent years, up to 30% to 50% depending on the value of the vehicle. Many vehicle types, especially those valued over $30,000, now face very high import taxes, which has understandably had an effect on the import of certain vehicles to the area.

An international driving permit is required in Argentina for foreign drivers, though you may not be asked to present it. It is possibly to get by without an IDP, but itโ€™s a very good idea to have it just in case you are asked for it. Insurance, like anywhere else, is required when driving and youโ€™ll likely have to present proof of insurance before your vehicle will be allowed into the country.

Temporary import of a vehicle into Argentina is much easier than the permanent method. For short-term imports, you simply need to present your travel documents as well as your current registration, license, and insurance information.
