Duties imposed by East Timor

According to one reputable source, if you can show customs that you’re employed with a registered aid organization - then you will be exempted from the regular import duties. This exemption covers a single shipment over the water and one via air. If you don’t have ties to an aid organization (or diplomatic status), then you’ll have to pay import duty on your shipment of household goods. In contrast to many countries, this rate isn’t hard and fast. It’s possible to discuss this rate with customs, and negotiate the fees for your goods (1).

Documents needed to import your goods

During the customs clearance process, you must hand over your packing list and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. You’ll also need to provide your passport. If you’ll be applying for duty exemption, then you must submit a tax exemption certificate. This should be issued from your employer (which should be a registered aid organization or foreign embassy). Your employer’s tax identification number is also required for exemption (2).

Duties imposed on your vehicle

The same prerequisites for duty exemption apply to vehicles, and if you don’t meet these conditions - then the standard rate will be charged. In order to be eligible for importation, your vehicle can’t be manufactured more than 5 years ago. It’s also required to be a right-hand drive vehicle (3). An engine size limit of 600cc is enforced - though this may only apply to motorcycles (4).

Documents needed to import your vehicle

Detailed paperwork is required by customs, before they will permit your vehicle to enter East Timor. You must have the vehicle’s title and registration, as well as your Bill of Lading. You’ll also need a Permit from the National Director of Ground Transportation and your passport. Paperwork demonstrating your residency in the country and verifying your student or employment status should also be provided. Your driver’s license and proof that you own the vehicle being imported round out the list of necessary documentation (5).

A number of other rules and paperwork requirements apply, when bringing your household goods and vehicle into East Timor. You must check with customs before embarking, otherwise you could face penalties, long clearance times or be denied entry entirely.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

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!
