The duties youโ€™ll pay for household goods

Customs will extend duty exemption on shipments of household belongings, if you meet their required criteria. This includes having bought the items at least six months ago, and personally using them during this period. You also must have been residing outside of Spain for at least the last 12 months. A limit of one year after moving into the country is enforced, after which time duty exemption wonโ€™t be available.

Also, be aware that if you donโ€™t yet have a Residence Permit when your shipment is going through customs clearance - then a Bank Guarantee will be required. This is a deposit of 40% - 60% of the shipmentโ€™s declared value, and the funds will refunded once you obtain (and show customs) your Residence Permit.

In addition, if you donโ€™t have a Residence Permit when your shipment arrives - then someone from your employer must be present at clearance. A foreigner that has a valid Spanish National Tax Office registration is also acceptable to customs (1).

The documents youโ€™ll need for household goods

A long list of paperwork is required for shipments being processed by customs, including an Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) number. A Certificate of Change of Residence, Declaration of Client (confirming how long you plan to live within Spain) and your passport are also required. Customs will also request a copy of your lease (this must run for at least two years) or purchase contract for a residence in the country.

A customs application requesting duty exemption should be shown as well, plus a detailed inventory. This inventory is to include monetary values, be written in Spanish and bear your signature and the date. Registering with the Spanish Treasury Department is also mandatory, and customs will require written proof that this has taken place (2). Many more documents are compulsory when passing through clearance, and itโ€™s recommended that you contact customs for a full list.

The duties youโ€™ll pay to import a vehicle

Itโ€™s uncertain whether duty-free entry of a vehicle into Spain is possible at this time. One source mentions that temporary importation can be performed, without incurring any import duties. However, after six months, the vehicle either must be removed from the country - or any applicable duties for permanent importation must be paid (3).

Another noteworthy source asserts that duty exemption for permanent imports can be obtained. The prerequisite is a six month space from the issuing of the title, until the discharge from the consulate. It also says that having owned the vehicle for a minimum of six months before shipping it to Spain is required. Finally, customs permission for duty-free import before it arrives in port is necessary (4).

The International Association of Movers (a third respected source), has very little to say on the matter of duty exemption (5). Therefore, with such varying information available - youโ€™re advised to simply call customs for a clear-cut answer.

The documents youโ€™ll need to import a vehicle

Be ready to show the vehicleโ€™s title and registration, a Certificate of Conformity and your passport. A receipt for any duty and road tax due is also required, plus personal ID of some kind. The Original Bill of Lading and documents establishing that youโ€™re the vehicleโ€™s owner must be presented as well (6).

When bringing a vehicle into Spain, the purchase receipt and a sheet listing all pertinent technical information are necessary too. Customs also mandates that vehicles adhere to European Union technical requirements (7). Youโ€™ll need a valid driverโ€™s license, proof of international insurance coverage and a Certificate of CIF value (apparently this should be issued within Spain). A valid Residence Permit and the vehicleโ€™s license plate number should also be presented to customs (8).

Other documentation, regulation and payment requirements will apply to your shipments, as this treatment of customs procedures isnโ€™t comprehensive. Therefore, speaking with them directly is wise, as they can provide complete details about their clearance process.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

As earlier mentioned, a lot of tasks are required when making an international move. Indeed, relocation may be too much for someone who has no prior experience in the process.

The following are some tips on how to make your international move easier:

  • Research on the best international moving company that will be able to deliver the services you seek. It is also advisable to be familiar with the custom rules that govern your destination. The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) website and the US Embassy in Spain are valuable resources.
  • Ensure that your goods are properly packaged. This will not only keep them secure but in good condition.
  • Find out which documents are required and prepare them well in advance.
  • Establish a good relationship with the shipping company to ensure that the move will be smooth. Clear communication will enable them take action on your requests.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

When making a move to a new country, you will require someone who is familiar with the rules that govern the country. For instance, a good shipping company will be forthright and tell you that you cannot ship old cars to Spain.

It is also better to have a stress-free move and leave the packing and unpacking to a trusted and qualified team. Remember you will be making a big move and you risk forgetting details both big and small.

By hiring Spain International Moving Services from a professional moving company, you are guaranteed of a move that has all the details looked into or acted upon by an experienced team.

How to find the best international moving company

There are a good number of international moving companies around but you need to find the best.

To do this, consider your top priorities while making the move. You do want a company that is forthright, experienced, and licensed to ship internationally.

For Spain International Moving Services, look into whether the company has certifications such as BBB and credentials from the America Moving and Storage Association. You can also get an estimate of their costs by requesting for quotes. For convenience, consider if the company has offices or a warehouse at your destination. Find out if the company has insurance and if they cover third parties.
