Taxing the Imported Vehicle.

You will also need to pay a 13% VAT and this is paid before customs can clear your vehicle import. The tax exemptions do apply for dignitaries as well as diplomats.

Shipping Methods to Choose.
There are a few ways that you can ship a vehicle from a port in the United States to a port in Bharatpur. You can discuss your options in depth with A1 Auto Transport service.
Air Shipping is available for the quickest way to ship but it is very expensive. Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method is available and is the most affordable way to ship your vehicle. Your vehicle will need to be up and running in order to be driven onto the deck of the ship and off again once it reaches port. You will not be allowed with anything inside the vehicle with the exception of floor mats, car jack, and a spare tire. You will need to remove all air conditioning gases as they are very flammable.
Container shipping is another option for you. This type of shipping is good if you want to add extra protection to your vehicle as it is in route. You can choose from a 20 foot or 40-foot container to ship in. You can place personal items inside the container with your vehicle if you want.
