Duties required for your household shipment
If you’ll be bringing your household belongings with you into Austria - these can be imported without paying duty. The requirement for exemption is that you’ve owned and used these items for a minimum of six months - and that you’ve lived outside of the country for at least one year. If you receive duty exemption, then you’re not permitted to sell or transfer ownership of these items for a full year (1).
Documents required for your household shipment
Paperwork is the name of the game, when clearing your shipment through Austrian customs. You’ll need to provide your passport, Austrian customs form ZBefr2a (for those who’ve lived in the EU) or Zbefr2 (for those who haven’t lived in the EU) and your Residence Registration.
A detailed inventory is also required, along with your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. When using an international shipping company like A1 Auto Transport - you’ll need to file a Power of Attorney, so we have permission to facilitate your shipment through the clearance process (2).
Duties required for your vehicle
The traditional import duties will be waived, if you meet certain stipulations. First, you must have owned and used the vehicle outside of the country, for a minimum of the last six months. Second, the vehicle must be imported in connection with your relocation into the country. Third, you must not have lived in the European Union for at least the last year (3). Finally, you aren’t allowed to sell or transfer ownership of the vehicle for two years after importing it (4).
Even if you’re granted import duty exemption, you’ll still need to pay the NOVA tax (also called standard consumption tax) for your vehicle. This varies depending upon the fuel consumption numbers for your specific vehicle - and it can be anywhere from 8% to 14% (5). Another additional cost can be the expense to modify your vehicle, so it adheres to Austria’s technical requirements (6).
Documents required for your vehicle
Austrian customs will request your passport, and the purchase invoice or receipt for your vehicle. You’ll also need to provide the title and registration issued in the origin country. Form T1 may also be required, if this document applies to your specific situation (7). Your international driver’s permit should also be submitted to customs (8).
Many other documents and regulations apply to both your shipment of household goods and vehicle. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you speak to Austrian customs prior to shipping these goods - to learn all the information you’ll need to know before moving.
