Are import duties assessed by Icelandic customs?

When relocating to picturesque Iceland, you may be wondering if import duties will be levied on your household belongings. Duty exemption is extended in certain instances. You’re required to have both owned and personally used these goods for at least the last six months.

You also must have resided outside of Iceland for the last 12 months. A time limit to import your goods after moving into the country also applies, and this is currently one year. Finally, you can’t transfer ownership, lend out or get rid of these items while in the country (1).

Are specific documents required by Icelandic customs?

You must have the Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill for your shipment, along with your passport. A comprehensive inventory that bears your signature and the date is also mandatory. If you wish to have import duty waived, then your duty exemption registration is necessary as well (2).

A valid Work Permit and/or Residence Visa must also be provided to customs. You should file a Power of Attorney too, as this gives an international shipping company like A1 Auto Transport, permission to act on your behalf when dealing with customs (3).

Are specific documents required by Icelandic customs?

You can bring your vehicle into Iceland for up to 12 months, without paying any import duty. This type of temporary importation, requires you to export the vehicle at the end of this time frame. If you fail to do so, then it must be processed by customs for permanent entry - and import duties and taxes may be charged. Other conditions also apply, such as the stipulation that you register the vehicle within Iceland, no later than one month after it is granted entry (4).

If you plan to permanently import your vehicle instead, here sources disagree on the procedure. The International Association of Movers says that duty may or may not be charged, but doesn’t specify the determining factors (5). Another source holds that duty-free import is available, as long as you meet certain conditions (6). However, there may have been some confusion and these conditions may only be those governing temporary imports.

As you can see, you’ll need to speak directly with Icelandic customs, to learn how duties will be handled for your vehicle shipment. This is recommended in any case, as not all the applicable regulations and documentation requirements are covered above.

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:

  • Liaise with the moving company. 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 Iceland. There is information accessible online on the websites of agencies and authorities such as the Embassy of Iceland and 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!
