For this reason, many people seek the services of professional international movers more so those who also offer international shipping of vehicles.

Duties charged on household belongings

You can have duty and tax waived on your shipment of household goods, if you’ve owned and used them for at least the last six months. Customs also requires that you’ve been residing outside of Slovakia for over a year. You’ll have just six months after moving into the country, to import goods without paying duty. Finally, you can’t sell these items for the next year, and they can only be for personal use during this time as well (1).

Another solid source reports that you’ll have a full 12 months after relocating to Slovakia, to receive duty exemption on your shipments of household goods (2). With different accounts available, it’s recommended that you get a definitive answer by speaking with customs.

Documents needed for household belongings

Your passport, Customs Declaration and a Letter of Employment must all be shown to customs. A comprehensive inventory that lists monetary values and bears your signature and the date is also required. This inventory may need to be written in both English and Slovak, though this isn’t entirely clear. Also necessary is your Original Bill of Lading, Air Waybill or CMR (agreement to transport cargo over the road internationally).

Customs will also want to see a rental contract, proving you have a residence within Slovakia (3). This contract must run for a full two years at minimum, and a shorter duration won’t be accepted. A Bank Guarantee and Residence Permit must also be presented (or your permit application if you haven’t yet received this document) (4).

Duties charged on vehicle imports

Customs requires you to have purchased the vehicle at least six months ago, and to have personally used it (in your origin country) during this time. Whether this guideline is necessary for all vehicle imports or is only a prerequisite to receive duty exemption, isn’t specified by reputable sources (5). Consequently, you’d benefit from discussing this question with customs, as they should be able to provide more conclusive information. Your vehicle should also be unregistered, and you will need a technical license to bring it into Slovakia (6).

Documents needed for vehicle imports

You must have the purchase receipt for the vehicle, along with the title and registration. Your driver’s license and documents showing you’ve procured insurance are also required (7). When shipping a vehicle to Slovakia, customs will request a Bank Guarantee as well (8). The technical license mentioned above should be submitted too. Finally, specific information about the vehicle is needed, such as its measurements, type of fuel it uses and more (9).

This brief overview should help you tremendously, as you make plans to relocate to Slovakia. However, not all of the applicable rules, documentation requirements and fees have been discussed above. This means that getting in touch with customs is advisable, as they can provide a full accounting of the regulations you’ll need to follow.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Cost of living

Each country has its own cost of living. So, before you move to Slovakia, research the standards of living there. Such information may include the price of different commodities and services. Doing this will help you identify which areas of your spending you need to cut down on. Also, you will be in a position to put aside enough savings to cater for your moving and settling.

Visa and passport

Being party to the Schengen Agreement, as a US citizen, you do not need a visa when traveling to Slovakia for the first 90 days. Nonetheless, you will need to contact the Embassy of Slovakia or Consulate offices to apply for a longer-stay visa. While at it, find out about the different types of residency for American citizens and apply accordingly.

You are required to have a valid US passport. It should cover three months from your date of arrival. Do also; find out if you need any other documents such as a work permit.

Banking and insurance

Before you leave, contact your bank and enquire if you can still access your savings while overseas. Also, make sure that your debit and credit cards are valid and can be used to access your funds while abroad. Do make necessary arrangements for your bank to continue making important payments such as clearing an outstanding debt.

Similarly, contact your insurance service provider and find out if you can transfer your policies. You can also ask if your policies will be valid while overseas. Ask if you will need additional policies such as travel and risk insurance.

Why you need a professional moving company

Satisfied Customers

“I'm glad to have chosen a reputable and well run firm to work with for my needs! Thanks!”

“I was wondering how A1 Auto Transport manages its people. They are so polite over the phone, provide you with a lot of options (even payment cardless options), set your expectations, and most of all, they take real good care of your automobile. I made the right choice to hand my Camaro to A1. My vehicle was delivered just on time to Missouri for my sister's birthday celebration. It was a really pleasant surprise. My Camaro arrived in excellent condition, as if it just came out from my garage.”

“I rarely leave comments whenever I avail services from anyone. This one is an exception. I have been working as a Supervisor in a supermarket here in Hawaii, and I’ve always reminded my staff to be at their best when they assist our customers. This company provided the quality of service I was expecting and more. The moment I called them, somebody picked up the phone. I must admit I become agitated when I spend too much time on the phone. But, I only spent 5 minutes to book my details. I did not even have to repeat myself. Another experience I will not forget is I did not even have to use a credit card to get reservation for the services since I told them I was having issues with it. Most transport companies would require that as an assurance, but it was an exception in my case. I give them a big 10 out of 10 for delivering a great service, and I would recommend them to my friends and colleagues for all the efforts they did!”

“Hi A-1, Just a note to let you know how please I have been with your service. The car shipped out of Southern Ca. Tuesday and arrived in perfect condition Saturday in Tallahassee. The driver "Steve" was very nice and knowledgable. He called me on Friday to let me know he planned to be in Tallahassee Saturday afternoon. Then he called again Saturday about 2 hours out and again 20 minutes out. We met and offloaded the car. He went over the paperwork with me and we check out the car. It was in perfect condition. Just a perfect story of how nice it can be to buy a can on eBay and have it shipped by A-1 Auto Transport I recommeded your company highly to the Seller in Ca. Thanks again very much. ”

“My experience using A1 Auto Transport went well. I had to take my car from New York to South Carolina. I thought of several options, even driving it myself, but the cost and convenience of auto transport won me over. I called A1 after reading some reviews, and it was a good choice. Joe detailed the entire process and gave me several cost and transportation options. He answered every question which convinced me he wasn’t some amateur. Since I had to be in South Carolina by the 30th, I drove part of the way and left his team to handle the rest. They let me know when the car will arrive 24 hours prior, and it arrived in great condition. The stuff I left in it was still there.”
