Moving Companies To Panama from the UK

Panama is a favorite among global ex-pats, due in part to the tropical climate and low cost of living. Located in Central America, Panama benefits from their lush, tropical location between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Locals enjoy the incredible biodiversity of the region and a thriving nightlife. Cost of living is low in Panama, but the quality of living is high, especially for UK residents looking to escape for sunnier skies.

If you are moving from the UK to Panama, you may want to bring your vehicle or personal goods with you. How can you import a vehicle into the country? Is there a duty on household goods? When it comes to importing your belongings to Panama, there are several factors to consider. This guide will give you the basics of what you need to import your personal belongings or vehicle to Panama. As always, you should check with local customs officials for the most current guidance.

Here’s what you need to know:

How do I Import Personal Items to Panama?

Import duty for personal goods can be waived if you have owned the items for more than a year and you have a residence visa.

You must visit the Office of Immigration in Panama prior to the arrival of your shipment. Customs documentation must also be delivered by hand rather than sent through the mail.

Import requirements can vary depending on your individual circumstances. For example, retirees have different requirements than those entering the country on a work visa. Make sure you contact the relevant authorities prior to finalizing any of your shipping plans, to ensure that you have the most current guidance.

How Do I Import a Vehicle to Panama?


Getting a clear answer on what taxes or duty must be paid for your vehicle import is harder than it sounds. Contact the relevant customs authorities for a definitive answer before you import your vehicle. Doing so will help you avoid unpleasant surprises.

You will need to submit paperwork to import your vehicle, including:

  • Certificate of Origin (this will show where the vehicle was manufactured, and when)
  • Driver’s License
  • Passport
  • Shipping Manifest or Packing List
  • Original Bill of Lading
  • Certificate of Ownership or clear title without liens

As previously mentioned, Panamanian customs officials require that your documentation includes original documents and that those documents are delivered by you or a courier in person rather than sent through the mail.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
