Duties when moving to Bhutan

Customs only permits you to bring limited amounts into the country, when it comes to your household belongings. Though duty exemption is possible, it can be hard to qualify for this privilege. According to one trusted source, you’ll need to be employed by the U.N., an embassy or NGO to receive duty exemption.

Regulations when moving to Bhutan

You should expect your shipment to be examined by customs, as they have the legal authority to do so. You also must be at the point or port of entry in person, when customs agents are processing your goods. An Import License is also mandatory, if you’ll be bringing your belongings in through the Kolkata Port (1).

Paperwork when moving to Bhutan

Customs will ask to see a comprehensive inventory, and either your Resident Visa or Work Visa. You’ll also need to give them your Letter of Employment, and an Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. Your passport is also required, and you may need an Import Permit from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2).

Duties for your vehicle

To receive duty exemption on your vehicle, the same requirements imposed on your household goods apply. You’ll need to be employed by an embassy, the United Nations or a non-governmental organization to be eligible (3).

If you don’t fall within these rigid categories, then duty will be assessed on your vehicle. It also appears that if you don’t meet these requirements, you’re only permitted to import a new vehicle (not used) (4). For more specific information regarding the import duties for your particular vehicle, speak to A1 Auto Transport or customs to learn more.

Paperwork for your vehicle

You’ll need to hand in the title and registration for your vehicle, which were issued in your origin country. A valid driver’s license and passport are also required, and an additional photo ID could be needed as well. Documents that show ownership of the vehicle and insurance coverage, must also be provided. You may need an Import License too, which you can obtain directly from the Royal Government of Bhutan (5).

More regulations and documents pertain to your shipment of household items and your vehicle. For this reason, you should speak with customs to get a better picture of all the requirements involved during your move.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Relocating to any country in the world, Bhutan included, is not an easy process. You can however, use the following tips to make your international move easier:

  • Conduct research on all that relates to your move so that you may make well informed decisions. You may seek clarification from the Embassy of Bhutan and the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) website.
  • Prepare, package and label your valuables properly. This makes them more secure and also makes it easier for the team that will be handling them.
  • Prepare the required documents well in advance and be ready to present them as and when required for processing.
  • Liaise with the moving company. Maintain a good working relationship so as to ensure that your move is executed easily.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Bhutan is a landlocked country and thus you will need an extra hand while making your move. Hiring Bhutan International Moving Services in this case will make the move far from complex for you. Since international movers are more familiar with the regulations related to shipping to your chosen destination, you will also be advised accordingly.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods internationally. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

How to find the best international moving company

The best moving company is one that will meet your needs and still charge shipping costs that match your budget. There are many adverts that create the impression that a shipping company is the best. How then can you determine beforehand that they are indeed the best?

You may consider their experience in offering Bhutan International Moving Services and the testimonials given by their previous clients. Looking at their performance and rating in the industry will also guide you to have an idea how they rank against the other moving companies.

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!
