Duties when relocating to Greece

If you wish to obtain duty exemption, then you’ll need to have lived abroad for a minimum of the last 2 years. Customs also requires that you have no financial ties in the country for that time period. If you meet these conditions, then you can typically bring in your household goods without paying import duty.

If you’ll be relocating from a country that’s not a member of the EU, then you’ll still have to pay value-added tax (VAT) on any goods you import. You also must take all items back out of the country, when you move away (1).

Paperwork when relocating to Greece

You must file documentation for your shipment of household goods, including a Residence Permit and your VAT ID number. An EORI application or declaration form is also required, as well as a packing list. In addition, page 4 of the T2L Form may be needed, along with an authorization form. Customs will also need your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill and your passport (2). A detailed inventory and documents supporting your claim of living abroad (such as a lease contract) should also be submitted (3).

Duties on your vehicle when relocating to Greece

It appears that duty exemption is only available to returning citizens and foreigners with diplomatic status. Otherwise, you’ll likely have to pay duty when importing your vehicle into the country. However, Greece does allow you to bring a vehicle in under tourist status, as a temporary import. This is good for as long as six months, and you won’t be required to pay duty during that time (4).

In addition to import duty, certain vehicles may incur luxury tax (speak to customs for details). The purchase of a Greek license plate may also be required (5).

Regulations for your vehicle when relocating to Greece

Your vehicle must meet certain regulations, to be eligible for import. First, it cannot be manufactured more than four years ago. It also can’t have more than 50,000 miles on the odometer. Finally, you must have purchased it a minimum of six months ago (6).

Paperwork for your vehicle when relocating to Greece

You must show proof of insurance and your driver’s license. Customs will also ask for the vehicle’s title and registration, which were issued in the origin country (7). You must have a Vehicle Road License, and this confirms you’ve paid the applicable road tax in your origin country. Finally, your vehicle must be included on the inventory submitted for your shipment of household belongings (8).

Please talk to customs regarding your move, as some other paperwork and regulations apply. This will ensure that you don’t experience any problems or unexpected issues when moving to Greece.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

International moving requires a lot of activities to be handled, from start to finish. Make your international move easier by acting on the following tips:

  • Because your goods will be handled frequently, you need to package them well. This makes it easier to store, handle, and transport them. Packaging options such as boxing or crating are available.
  • Prepare your documents in a timely manner so as to enable easy processing.
  • Liaise with the moving company and establish a good relationship. Maintaining good communication links with the movers enables you to have a smooth process and eases your anxiety.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

International moving involves a lot of logistics such as packing and unpacking and transportation of your valuables. There are also official tasks that need to be undertaken such as document preparation, customs clearance, and visa applications, just to mention a few. Since it is easy for you to get overwhelmed or miss a single detail, it is important to hire the services of a professional moving company. Doing this will make your relocation easier since you will be availed with the much needed support and guidance.

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!
