It is important that you hire an auto transporter in Los Angeles with international shipping experience. They understand the significance in complying with the country’s policies for import and will guide you through the process to gain Customs’ approval.

Costa Rica’s auto import policy remains rather lenient in comparison to many other countries. Nevertheless, import policies are always being updated and changed. Before scheduling your vehicle’s transport, make sure that it complies with the restrictions of the country by calling the Embassy of Costa Rica

About the Regulations and Taxes for Auto Import in Costa Rica.

  • Specific paperwork including your license, passport, vehicle title and registration, and other forms of similar proof need to be given to Customs. You will need to provide proof of paid tariffs and duties. For vehicles over six years of age entering the country, expect to pay a higher rate. It is safe to say that vehicles over 6 years old will be charged at least 70% of the vehicle’s value in taxes, whereas newer vehicles will usually be somewhere around 50%. These percentages vary over time.
  • Costa Rica requires all vehicle owners to complete an inspection on an annual or bi-annual basis, depending on the age of the car. All auto imports will need to pass this inspection.
  • Before you can drive off with your vehicle, it will need to be registered in the country. Insurance coverage is also required.

While completing the tasks to obtain the proof needed can be time consuming, the professionals will be there to guide you through the process. They will be extremely helpful, especially in obtaining all of the proper documents. They want nothing more than to assure that the car is shipped to Costa Rica safely.
