If you are incapable of speaking the language or you have any difficulties with currency exchange, you will have a difficult time. This is why you might want to get your own personal vehicle imported when you move from USA. This can provide you with a significant amount of benefits that you can consider. It is important to understand that all of the imported vehicles are thoroughly subjected to taxation and duties. This is why you need to rely on a shipping company, like A1 Auto Transport, to keep everything down to the bottom line. We have been in business of shipping automobiles for years and understand all aspects of global shipping and legal requirements.
Import and Foreign Shipment
If the car is transported in a non-containerized vessel, you will have to pay P$30.00 for a revenue ton. However, if you are using a Government-wharf, the Philippines Port Authority applies a single tax for a revenue ton. For a car, it is going to be $0.694 per ton with a minimum charge set at P$10.00. You have the option of importing it within the country using RORO method or container shipping, depending upon your vehicle, budget and requirements.
Required Documents for Shipping a Car to Philippines
There are quite a lot of documents that you would have to account for and to present, if you want to get your car shipped to the Philippines. They include:
- Import authority permit
- Vehicle registration
- An engine number
- Sales invoice
- Owner’s passport
- Bill of Sale and proof of insurance.
Vehicle Possession Restrictions
It would be very helpful if you are present at the time you are to receive your vehicle because the authorities might search it through. If you want to ship a privately owned car you need to first obtain special Authority permit. This is provided by the Philippine Bureau of Import Service – it’s only obtained from within the country. Your vehicle needs to have a left-hand drive.
Before you get said permit, however, you need to have lived outside of the country for no less than a year. For vehicles which are newer than three years, it needs to have been in your possession for no less than six months prior to initializing the process or arriving in the Philippines. For vehicles which are older than three years, the car needs to have been owned by you for at least a year. If you have a car older than 5 years, you won’t be able to import it into the country. There is also a limit of one vehicle per family in the country.
