Duties for household items

Customs permits you to import household belongings without paying any import duty, though there are some prerequisites to receive exemption. The Chief Commissioner must determine that these items have been personally used by you for a reasonable amount of time prior to import - and that you aren’t planning to sell or get rid of these items within the country.

You also must have a Residence Visa that’s good for a minimum of twelve months. Finally, these household goods must be brought into Tonga no later than six months after you arrive (though the Chief Commissioner has the authority to issue an extension). If you’ve lived in Tonga previously, then you must have resided elsewhere for at least 2 years to be eligible for duty exemption (1).

Documents for household items  

Before any of your other paperwork can be processed, you must request and obtain a Customs Identification Number (CIN). This is required when importing household goods for your own personal use, rather than commercial purposes (which would require a Tax Identification Number instead) (2). You can download the short one-page CIN application here. Customs also has many other forms, and you should speak to them directly - to determine which will apply in your specific situation.

That being said, you’ll likely need to fill out the Passenger Arrival Declaration, and you may need a Border Currency Reporting Form. One of several different types of inspection forms will probably be necessary as well (3). Last of all, Customs Import Entry (Form C13) will almost certainly be requested, when processing your shipment for entry (4).

Duties for vehicles  

According to the duty schedule provided by the Ministry of Revenue & Customs, it seems that most vehicles with spark-ignition internal combustion reciprocating piston engines can be imported without incurring duty. This includes vehicles which are in new condition. There are a few exceptions, such as vehicles built to accommodate 10 passengers or more - though this may only be for diesel or semi-diesel versions of these vehicles (5).

While it’s likely that import duty won’t be charged on your vehicle, excise tax should still apply. The rate varies depending upon the exact category of your vehicle, which is determined by the year of manufacture, type of engine and engine size.

The current range is from 25 cents per cc - all the way up to $1.00 per cc of engine displacement (6). In general, the taxes are higher for vehicles with larger engines, which were manufactured less than 10 years ago. To determine the charges that will be imposed on your particular vehicle, talk with customs beforehand.

Documents for vehicles  

Though the paperwork required when shipping a vehicle to Tonga isn’t entirely clear, you’ll likely need all of the forms necessary for importing household goods listed above. Confirm this information with customs, to avoid problems or delays during processing.

This overview isn’t comprehensive, and other regulations, fees and documentation requirements may pertain to your shipment. For example, a Consumption Tax of 15% is reportedly charged on all imports - though whether this is levied on shipments of personal belongings isn’t mentioned.

How do you make your international move easier?

International moving is a more extensive process that requires one to observe a few things. There are some documents you need and therefore you need to get them ready. Some of these are Visa/passport and a permit to move your items.

Each country has specific requirements and therefore it is imperative to get to know what you require. You need to package your valuables well in advance, in the best way possible, to avoid inconveniences. Such and much more is required prior to moving your things. That is why our Tonga International Moving Services is the solution for you. We have the solutions you need; you only give us the instructions and see it done.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

No one wants to go through a process that will drain them physically, financially and emotionally. You don’t want to begin a process that you are not sure about, the logistics on legal requirements and much more. A professional moving company is essential in getting everything in place for easy and convenient moving. You need someone to pack for you in the most appropriate way to avoid breakages. International moving demands so much that if you did it alone, it would take ages yet it is something a professional will do in a matter of hours.

How to find the best international moving company

Not every other company in the moving industry is fit for you to partner with. A company of your choice should be accredited to do the business by both local and international authorities. This company should have been in business for a while and prove that they have rendered similar services nearly all over the world. A good moving company will have presence in all countries and possess a certificate of shipping. The company of your choice should ensure that you and your valuables are comprehensively insured in case of anything. You will need someone who closely walks with you through the process, from the time you begin packing until you are settled in your destination. This is why you need to ensure that you only end up with a reputable international moving firm.

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!
