Are there duties for your household belongings?

When relocating to Belgium, you’re permitted to bring your used household belongings without paying duty. To be eligible for this exemption, you must have owned and used these items for at least the last six months. You also can’t have resided in either the EU or Belgium, for a minimum of the last 12 months. Finally, you’re required to bring your shipment into the country, no later than one year after entering Belgium (1).

Are there regulations for your household belongings?

Like most countries, Belgium has various regulations that you must follow when importing your goods. For example, if you don’t have a valid Certificate of Residence when your shipment arrives - then you’ll have to pay an upfront guarantee (which will be refunded at some point in the future). This will be 10% of the typical import duties, as well as 21% value-added tax.

You’re also not allowed to sell, lend, rent out or give away any duty-exempt items while in the country (2).

Are there documents required for your household belongings?

Customs will request your passport and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. They’ll also need a Letter of Employment and full packing list. A valid Certificate of Residence is also required, at least to receive duty exemption (3). A number of other documents are also needed, so speak to customs directly to learn more.

Are there duties on your vehicle?

Like with your household goods, your vehicle can be imported into Belgium free from any duties. To be eligible, you must have owned the vehicle for a minimum of the last six months. It also can’t have more than 6,000 kilometers on the odometer - and you may need to have paid VAT and sales tax when you purchased it in the origin country (though not all sources list this requirement) (4).

Are there documents required for your vehicle?

You must submit all of the necessary paperwork for your vehicle, when bringing it into Belgium. This includes the purchase invoice, receipt or sales contract. You’ll also need to provide a certificate of insurance issued in your country of origin. A registration card for the vehicle is also needed (5). This is not a full list of the forms required, so you should contact customs for more complete information.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Visa, passport, and residency

In Belgium, US citizens do not need a visa for the first 90 days. All they need is a valid US passport which you can apply for through the US Government.

Since you are not required to have a visa, seek for information about residency to find out if there is any formal process of applying. To find out more about your residency visit the Embassy of Belgium’s website for more information.

Working and doing business

After relocating overseas, most people realize that the cost of living is not as cheap as they anticipated. They tend to run out of their savings very fast. It is therefore, prudent to find out well-in-advance if you can still operate any of your local businesses from abroad.  Ask for information on how to set-up a venture that does not require a huge upfront investment.

You could seek information about available employment opportunities and apply in advance if they exist. Doing so will help you discover, early enough, whether or not you need a work permit.


If you have never been to Belgium, it is a good idea to visit the place if you get the chance to do so. This will help you get a feel of what is to be your new home. Once there, visit different places and try to blend in with the environment. Also, try to engage with the locals as this will give you all the information that you need.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

As you are already aware, moving abroad is complex. In fact, you might end up not moving if you handle it yourself. You may also lose or damage your valuables. Besides, you will strain yourself both mentally and physically and will take a lot of time.

However, if you hire a professional mover, you will have a hassle-free moving experience. Undoubtedly, professional movers will handle your belongings with care and deliver them to your destination safely. They also have the right equipment and personnel who will execute the task quickly and efficiently. Indeed, this also saves you time.

How to find the best international moving company

When looking for Belgium International Moving Services, begin by searching the internet. Also, get recommendations from family members and friends. Before you choose a mover, kindly note the following:

  • The basic requirement for any international moving company is the organization should be licensed.
  • Choose a company whose insurance cover caters for damage to goods on transit.
  • Settle for a company that has attained the highest service standards by attaining accreditations.
  • Ask if the company offers packing services. This helps to save time.
  • Compare at least two to three companies. Settle for the one that is offering you the service package that you want at an affordable rate.

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!
