Process for Argentina Vehicle Registration| 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 “hoops to jump through” that can draw the process out longer than you might be accustomed to. Luckily, if you’re a nonresident visitor, you can register an imported vehicle temporarily, which is a somewhat easier process.

Argentina Vehicle Registration 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 you’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 there’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 it’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 you’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.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
