Import duties charged by customs

If you’ll be moving to Cyprus and bringing the bulk of your household goods with you - it’s possible to import these without paying duty. To be eligible, you’ll need to have owned these items for a minimum of one year. In addition, you and your family must have been personally using these goods during this time. You also are required to have lived abroad for more than the last 12 months, and to import reasonable quantities of these goods. Finally, you’re not permitted to sell them once you enter Cyprus.

Even if you receive duty exemption on your shipment, if you’ll be relocating to Cyprus for a long duration - then a Temporary Refugee Levy (or TRL) will be assessed on your goods. Also, it is possible that specific items may not fall under duty exemption, so speak with customs to learn what fees your shipment will incur (1).

Import documents prescribed by customs

Certain paperwork is required to process your shipment, including a packing list and your passport. A completed Form 1002 should also be presented, which has been stamped and signed by the embassy in your origin country. Your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill must also be shown. If you’re moving from an EU country, you’ll also need a T2L form (which bears the signature of customs in your origin country).

If you’re coming from a non-EU nation instead, then you’ll need a Letter of Employment. A bank statement verifying that you have money deposited within Cyprus is also required. You should also include copies of your utility bills and your past lease or sales contract, for your previous residence in your origin country. Proof of school registration and an exemption from the embassy in your origin country, round out the list of required paperwork (2).

Import duties charged on your vehicle

There are conflicting accounts from reputable sources, on the topic of how duties are handled by customs. One source states that duty exemption is available, provided you meet the necessary conditions. These include coming from a non-EU country, having owned the vehicle for longer than the last six months - and having an odometer reading of higher than 6,000 kilometers.

You also must have lived outside of Cyprus for at least 12 months in a row, and import the vehicle no later than six months after moving. Exempt status also requires that you prove permanent relocation to the country, and that you pay the necessary value-added tax (VAT). This VAT is separate from import duties, and currently stands at around 18% (3).

Import documents for your vehicle

Before your vehicle will be authorized to enter Cyprus, you must provide proof of insurance. The purchase invoice or receipt and the vehicle’s registration are also needed. Your passport will also be requested, along with quite a few additional forms (4).

This discussion isn’t exhaustive, and other paperwork requirements and regulations apply to your household items and vehicle. Be sure to get in touch with customs before moving, to verify that you’re in full compliance.

You also benefit from having ease of mind by having a shipping company ship your car to Cyprus since they will handle all logistical issues.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Relocation involves a number of tasks and details to be attended to. Make your international move easier by acting on the following handy tips:

  • Prepare and package your belongings in a way that eases their handling and storage. Label them well and be sure to indicate if there is anything fragile.
  • Prepare your travel documents and proof of ownership well in advance so as to enable easy processing.
  • Liaise with the moving company. Establish a good relationship and communicate with them to ease the moving process. Make your expectations known and provide all information related to your international move or the handling of your valuables.
  • Research on rules and regulations that govern shipping to Cyprus. There is information available online on the websites of agencies and authorities such as the US Department of Transport (USDOT).

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!
