Will you be charged import duties?
Croatia allows you to be exempted from import duties, as long as you meet the required criteria. First, you must have a bond on deposit. Second, you must have been living outside of Croatia for a minimum of the last 12 months. Third, you are required to have owned and used these items for at least the last six months. Finally, you may not transfer them to anyone else (or even let other people borrow them) for a full two years after entering the country (1).
What paperwork will you need?
Customs will ask for a comprehensive inventory that includes values, and this should be signed by you and written in both English and Croatian. You also must show your lease or purchase contract, proving you have a residence in the country. Your visa, Work Permit or Extended Stay Permit are also required. If you’ll be using a third-party shipping company like A1 Auto Transport, then you must submit a Power of Attorney. Finally, your passport and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill should be included in your paperwork (2).
Will you be charged duties on your vehicle?
For long-term importation of your vehicle into Croatia, you’ll be required to pay the typical import duties. Though no exemption is allowed, duty is waived if you import your vehicle on a temporary basis. In fact, temporary vehicle imports don’t even require customs clearance - though you’re only permitted to keep the vehicle in Croatia for under six months. Once that time limit expires, you must either export the vehicle or pay the duties required to import it permanently (3).
What paperwork will you need for your vehicle?
If you’re opting to go the long-term importation route, then you’ll need to have it cleared for entry by customs. They require a Bill of Sale and the vehicle title to be submitted. You’ll also need a notarized sales contract (or perhaps a purchase invoice) and the Original Bill of Lading. If you don’t own the vehicle outright, but are still paying on the loan - then written authorization from the loan owner is necessary (4).
This brief overview is far from comprehensive, and many additional regulations and filing requirements apply. Therefore, when shipping your household goods and vehicle from your origin country, you should always talk with Croatian customs before proceeding.
Tips on how to make your international move easier
Make your international move easier by acting upon the following tips:
- Your goods will be handled frequently and you therefore need to package them well. Packaging options such as boxing or crating are suitable for different types of goods.
- Prepare your documents well in advance so as to enable easy processing.
- Liaise with the moving company. Establish a good relationship with them and maintain constant communication throughout the process. You will be able to clearly communicate your expectations and they will also be forthright and update you of your move and any changes.
