Duties when importing household belongings

You’re allowed to bring used household items into Moldova without paying duty, if you purchased them at least six months ago. You’re also required to have personally used them during this time, and to have resided outside of the country for a minimum of the last 12 months.

Failure to take all duty-exempted items with you upon leaving Moldova, will result in a VAT of roughly 20% being charged. You’re also not permitted to sell, lend out to others or get rid of these goods while in the country. Finally, in order to be eligible for duty exemption, your shipment must enter port no later than six months after you move to Moldova (1).

Documents when importing household belongings

You must submit the documents that customs requires to process your shipment. This includes a pro-forma invoice, a valid passport and a comprehensive inventory. If you’re relocating to Moldova permanently, then you’ll need to show your Moldovan Resident Permit. If your stay will be more temporary in nature, then customs will ask to see your Temporary Resident Permit and/or Work Permit.

Shipments being brought in temporarily also require a Letter of Employment in the packet of documentation you provide (2). A separate packing list and a Power of Attorney should also be submitted. Finally, you must have the Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill for the shipment (3).

Duties when importing vehicles

If you wish to avoid paying duties when bringing your vehicle into Moldova, then you should opt for temporary importation. This allows you to keep the vehicle in the country for up to one year - though this term can be renewed for another year. There seems to be no limit set on renewals, though it appears you must have a valid Resident Permit to continue doing so. This process is not to be taken lightly, as failure to renew your temporary import permission, will result in your file being forwarded to the smuggling department of customs (4).

Keep in mind that while duty is waived for temporary vehicle imports, a small fee of roughly 95 Euros is still charged. In addition, you aren’t permitted to import vehicles manufactured more than 10 years ago (though some sources say only 7 years). If you choose to import your vehicle permanently instead, then duty exemption won’t be available (5). The exact rate you’ll pay is based upon the specifics for your vehicle - such as its value, the size of its engine, the model and year it was made (6).

Documents when importing vehicles

Customs must receive the vehicle’s title and registration, which were issued in the origin country. The Original Bill of Lading for the shipment should be submitted as well (7). You’ll also need the purchase receipt, your driver’s license and proof of insurance coverage (which is valid internationally) (8). The import policies, filing requirements and fees enforced by customs are subject to change. There are also additional regulations not covered above. Therefore, you’re strongly encouraged to discuss the details of your shipments with customs, before shipping your goods to Moldova.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Moving overseas is often perceived as such a hassle but it can be stress-free, especially when you choose a moving company that does its job well. Overall, preparation is important as this enables you to have a great experience and easy time relocating.

You need to prepare your goods in a way that makes packing and unpacking easy. You also need to prepare the required paperwork so as to enable easy processing. Liaise with the moving company and let them know the important details related to your move and the handling of your goods.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

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!
