🇹🇭 Thailand, (TH)

If you want to import a vehicle to Thailand, You may be overwhelmed by all the documentation and paperwork needed in order to successfully import your vehicle. You need a reliable company that you can trust to assist you in every step. First, the process will begin with the paperwork needed. The transport company will need to know if you are importing on a temporary basis or a permanent basis. If you plan to keep your vehicle there for as little as six months or less, you may want to just apply for a temporary import. If you plan to keep it there for more than six months, you will need to go with the permanent process instead.

Importing Temporarily.

If you are importing on a temporary basis, you will not be expected to pay any customs duties, fees, or taxes. You will simply need to have a bank guarantee it for you or make a cash deposit that can be secured in the amount of everything. If the vehicle is exported out within the six month period, the importer will then return the deposit.


  • Five copies of a special good declaration.
  • Current vehicle registration.
  • Commercial invoice of purchase.
  • Contract stating re-export details.
  • Application completed requesting temporary import.
  • Driver license and passport of the owner of the vehicle.

Steps to import your vehicle.

  • Submit all the necessary documentation needed to the Customs at the Port of Entry (Submission can be made by you or by the transport agency that represents you)
  • Customs will check off on all documentation received and assign a declaration number to your import application. They will then determine the amount you will need to pay in taxes and duties.
  • The transport service will then issue Customs a cash deposit or guarantee from the bank that will cover all the fees estimated for import.
  • The transport service will then need to provide proof that all deposits have been made and everything has been checked out.
  • Customs will then inspect the vehicle as well as all belongings brought in with the imported vehicle if any. One copy of Goods Declaration will be issued to the importer, which will present the copy once the vehicle is exported.
Importing on a Permanent Basis.

If you are importing your vehicle to Thailand on a permanent basis, the procedure is a little different. The import permit from the Foreign Trade Department of the Ministry of Commerce will be required before your vehicle can be shipped. Additionally, there is a lot of paperwork that has to be completed which includes:

  • Import permit for a car that is used.
  • Import Good Declaration (make three copies of this).
  • Vehicle registration on used cars.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • House Certificate for used cars as well as an ID card.
  • Commercial invoice.
  • Passport.
  • Release order.
  • Insurance Invoice.

You are required to submit all the documentation listed above to the Customs at the Port of Entry. The Thai Customs will then check all the documentation and assign the vehicle import a declaration number and calculate all dues. It is essential that the importer pays the office all the total monies due. The shipper will then show the receipt where everything was paid to Customs and have the vehicle released. As you see, there is an extensive amount of paperwork required in order to transport. You need to hire a transport company that will handle the procedure for you. It's important to hire someone who has the knowledge needed to import vehicles to Thailand.

There are two different ways to ship a vehicle Roll On/ Roll Off method and the container shipping method. Both ways are acceptable but the Roll On/ Roll Off method is the most practical. The Roll On/ Roll Off method uses ramps to drive the vehicle onto the ship and the roll it off when the ship reaches Thailand. The vehicle will need to be completely empty except for floor mats, car jack, and a spare tire for this method. You can choose to ship several vehicles or a vehicle and your personal belongings in a container. You can even fill up your vehicle with your belongings inside the container.

Satisfied Customers

“Tracey, I'd just like to say how happy I am with the way Cherie and Kim have helped me today. Very pleasant and professional members of your team. Regards Rich Pardo”

“For one reason or another, shipping a car between states makes me a bit worried. Using another company prior to A1 Auto Transport which left a huge scratch on my car didn’t help ease my trust issues either. The quote Joe gave me wasn’t the lowest on my list (I did a ton of research this time), but I was less interested in getting a deal as I was in getting my car to Illinois safely. I paid a deposit after he picked up my car. By that point, it was in his hands. I was glad he called so much during transport. He must’ve felt I was stressed out by the whole experience. Fortunately, my worries were for nothing. This company pulled through and brought my car as I left it. Thank you Joe!”

“Thank you for the careful attention to our request for a quote. We did not win the auto auction on E-Bay and chose to purchase a car locally. I appreciate your prompt response to our request for a quote, great follow-up, and then, the convenience of being able to remove our name from future mailings when we realized we would not need your service. I am very impressed by your customer service. With appreciation, - Susan Heim”

“I was having a hell of a time with a broker, so I started looking for alternatives. From the first moment Joe picked up the phone, I knew this was the company I needed. There was something about the tone of his voice, the way he explained everything that reassured me. After my husband’s dad passed away, his mother wanted to leave her vehicle to our son. It was a barely driven Pontiac, and at 18 years old, it was all our son needed. But how were we supposed to get it to him to Delaware? I searched online and spoke to a broker who promised he’d find a carrier within 2 days. 4 days later, I called back to learn he’d forgotten all about our arrangement. He asked for 2 more days, but I was over it. A friend from work wanted to help and found A1 Auto Transport online. We both went through the site, and we were sold. Joe was very attentive and the door to door service was awesome. 2 years later, our son wanted to move closer to home, so we once again called A1. The car didn’t fare too well to my son’s driving. It was in need of multiple repairs, and he was worried something might happen during transport. I explained to Joe the situation, and after getting all the details on the Pontiac’s condition, he agreed to help. Just in case, the driver inspected it carefully and was even more careful loading it onto the truck. I called a couple times to check its condition and the driver also sent me regular texts letting me know it was ok and how much he had to go until the destination. My son was technically the client, so I was happy he took the time to inform me as well. I give A1 Auto Transport my honest praise and thanks for their great service!”

“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!”
