Is duty exemption offered on household goods?

The short answer is yes - though a number of requirements apply. Customs mandates that you have owned and personally used the household items you’re importing, for at least the last year. You’re also required to be in the country while customs is processing your shipment.

If you’ll be living in Israel temporarily, or you’re a new immigrant to the country - then you could be permitted to import up to three shipments exempt from duty. This can take place over a period of three years after you transfer residence into Israel. To be eligible, you are required to have lived in your previous country for at least 12 months. You also must have the Teudat Oleh and passport to receive duty exemption (1).

Is paperwork required for household goods?

The filing requirements for shipments of household items are fairly intensive. You’ll need to provide your Residence Visa and proof of residency within the country. This can take the form of your lease or purchase contract, for a domicile in Israel (and this must be good for at least 12 months). The booklet (called the Teudat Oleh) for new immigrants should also be submitted, if this is required in your situation.

You also should file Form MB165 and Form MB130, as well as a full packing list. If you’ll be importing any new items in your shipment, then you must attach receipts or invoices for these goods. If any belongings are under one year in age, then a EUR-1 or Certificate of Origin will also be needed. You may even need to bring copies of your divorce papers (if you are legally divorced) or show an Israeli ID card (if you are single). However, these requirements may only apply to returning citizens - so speak with customs to learn more (2).

Is duty exemption offered on vehicles?

Regrettably, only diplomats are permitted to import vehicles without paying duty. If you are classified as a new immigrant to Israel, then you’ll pay a rate between 46 to 76%. This is a discounted rate, and the exact figure that will be charged depends upon the power of your vehicle’s engine.

Additional regulations apply, such as the stipulation that your vehicle adhere to the Israeli Institute of Standards. Only left-hand drive vehicles are eligible for import, and diesel vehicle aren’t allowed (3).

You’ll be required to submit a slew of documentation, before importing your vehicle into Israel. Additional paperwork, regulations and fees also apply to shipments of household goods and vehicles. As the import process is intricate and subject to change without notice - it’s imperative that you partner with a qualified international moving company like A1 Auto Transport. You should also speak to Israeli customs directly, to confirm that all the necessary details are in place before your move.

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!
