Travel restrictions and advisories

Before delving into the duties that Iranian customs may charge, it’s important to note, that it may not be possible to move to Iran from certain Western countries. Due to a shifting diplomatic landscape, these restrictions are subject to change - which also highlights how important it is to work with a well-informed moving company.

In addition, a number of nations have travel advisories in place. For example, the U.S. Department of State has placed a level 4 advisory on travel to Iran, stating that you should not visit this country. It is deemed unsafe because U.S. citizens have been held without cause or arrested (1). The UK is a bit more lenient, recommending that their citizens only enter Iran if essential - and that they absolutely avoid certain unsafe areas (such as the Iraq and Afghanistan border regions) (2).

Import duty on your household items

If after consulting the applicable government department in your home country, you still wish to proceed with your move - you may be wondering about the import duties assessed by Iranian customs. Provided you have a Work Permit, Residence Permit and are relocating to Iran for work purposes - your goods can be exempted from import duty. You’re required to have owned and personally used these items for at least the last six months.

A time limit for exemption also applies, which is within 4 months for all but air shipments. These must arrive no later than 3 months after you enter Iran. Finally, customs requires that you be at the point or port of entry in person, while your goods are being processed (3).

Import documents for your household items

Before your shipment can be allowed into the country, customs must process it. During this procedure, they’ll request your packing list, Work Permit or visa and passport. The shipment’s Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill must also be shown. A valid Residence Permit is required as well (4).

You’ll need a Power of Attorney and a lease agreement to further demonstrate that you’ve established a residence within Iran. A detailed inventory that includes monetary values will also be requested by customs (5).

Import duty for your vehicle

Though you’ll likely enjoy duty exemption on your household belongings - no such relief is granted for vehicle imports. Only offered to diplomats, most people will have to pay the standard duty rate. You also need to obtain written permission from the Ministry of Commerce - which can take quite a long time. You also can’t use a third-party agent, as Iranian customs requires you to complete this application on your own.

Be aware that right-hand drive vehicles or those manufactured more than 3 years ago cannot be imported. Vehicles with diesel engines are also not permitted (6).

Import documents for your vehicle

When importing your vehicle into Iran, you’ll need the permit issued by the Ministry of Commerce (as discussed above). The vehicle’s title and registration from your origin country are also required. Customs will ask for proof of insurance coverage as well, along with the Original Bill of Lading (7).

When making an international move to Iran, it’s highly recommended that you work closely with an experienced shipping company like A1 Auto Transport. As the above list isn’t definitive, there are other fees, forms and rules that will apply. It’s important that you fulfill all of these requirements - otherwise penalties or delays may occur. Therefore, it’s best to speak with customs, before shipping your goods to Iran.

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!
