Balkanabat has a rather modern roadway system so there is no need for you to import a 4-wheel drive vehicle unless you are going to be driving in the desert. There are regulations that you will have to abide by in order to get your vehicle in the country. To adhere to the Motor vehicle regulations and laws, you are required to submit plenty of documents that include:
Insurance certification for the car
Permission of operation by the Customs
Ocean Bill of Lading
License plate receipt
Inspection by the State vehicle department
Temporary or Permanent declaration for import
Certificate of Standard of State
Temporary declaration for import
The taxes that you need to pay have to be paid to the Customs department. For the temporary importation you can pay a $5/hr for the services provided and $25 to the Customs. However, if you are looking at the cost of shipping from USA to Turkmenistan, it is around $2,500 to $5, 300 but it would depend upon the size of the vehicle that needs to be shipped. Additionally, only vehicles that have been permanently imported can be sold in Turkmenistan.

Before the Shipping
Before the shipping you have to fill out all the necessary pre-shipping paperwork. You should also determine the method of transportation that you will be using and whether you want any additional special services such as door-to-door and door-to-port shipping. The documents that you have to prepare for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency are as follows:
Social Security Card
Power of Attorney
A1 Auto Transport service is going to help you as much as it’s possible. Keep in mind that relocating could be rather daunting enough without having assistance. There are three ways for you to ship your car and you need to determine the one which is most convenient. The first one is RO-RO shipping. Your vehicle is parked in the open bays on the ship’s deck and secured in place. This will allow you to get your car quickly and cheap. Container shipping – it’s more secure but also more expensive. Air shipping, needless to say, is most expensive and a lot of people opt out of it because of the high cost.
If you need specific information or an update on the current laws, it is good to contact the Embassy of Turkmenistan in USA before you start the process of exporting your car.
