Moving to Austria from India
Moving to Austria from India

Moving to Austria from India can be a big change, but it doesn’t have to be a complicated move. Residents of Austria enjoy a high quality of life. The country boasts affordable childcare, education, and easy access to rail transportation that takes passengers throughout Europe.   

German is the most common language in Austria, with English a helpful second language understood by most in the country. 

Can you import your belongings into the country? Is it even affordable? 

When it comes to importing your personal goods to Austria, there are several factors to consider. This guide will help you decide what to move and how, making your transition a smooth and easy process. 

What are the requirements to import household goods to Austria? 

As a member of the European Union, Austria has two different sets of rules for importing: rules for EU member countries and rules for non-EU member countries. Here is what you need to know to import your goods from India to Austria:  

Most of your household goods will not be subject to import duties or taxes, provided you can provide the appropriate documentation and import your goods within 12 months of your relocation to the country. There are some exceptions to this rule, including alcohol and tobacco, for which you must pay to import more than a personal amount. 

  • Form ZBefr 2E – this form is a declaration that you are moving from a non-EU country to Austria. 
  • Evidence proving that you are moving your residence in Austria and that you have been outside the EU for at least the past 12 months. 
  • Proof of ownership for your household goods showing that you have owned and used them for at least the past six months. 
  • Assurance that the household goods will be used for the same purpose in Austria. (as opposed to using these items for business purposes)

What are the requirements to import a vehicle? 

If you wish to bring your vehicle with you to Austria, it is best to bring it with you. If you decide to import your vehicle later, you will be subject to a 10% duty assessed on the car’s value and a 20% import turnover tax. You will also need to pay the standard consumption tax, referred to as NOVA. 

You will need to show proof of ownership, which can be demonstrated by presenting a clear title, purchase invoice, or bill of sale. You will also need to be able to show that you have been using the vehicle and intend to continue doing so in Austria. 

Customs clearance can be complex and there are exemptions for which you may be eligible. For this reason, you should always contact customs to receive up to date guidance before you even begin the process.

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!
