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.
