Dobrich is by far the eight most populated city in Bulgaria and is the administrative center of the Dobrich Province. It is the capital of the region of Southern Dobrudzha. The city is located 30 kilometers away from the coasts of the Black Sea.
Bulgaria is a country member of the EU and the same rules apply as for other countries. You are going to have to get customs clearance following all the regulations. You will have to pay the VAT, take care of insurance and apply for verification of the origin. You will also have to have the car inspected and tested for roadworthiness. Basically the process is almost the same as it is in other countries members of the EU.

Bulgarian customs would require your vehicle to get imported and declared on a temporary import basis. Furthermore, you would have to “guarantee” for the car in order for it to get transported through the Customs. The amount of the guarantee is going to be based on the specifications of the vehicle, including make, year of first registration, model, kW of the engine and others of the kind. You can renew the import permit if you stay more than a year.
There are certain documents that you need to get prepared in order to get your car in Bulgaria. It is a standard procedure and the documents are nothing out of the ordinary. They include:
- Proof of ownership and registration
- A valid visa
- Title deed of the car
- International driver’s license
- An international car insurance policy
- Social security number of the owner
Taxes and Duties
The amount of duties as well as taxes that you are going to pay differ based on the specifications of the vehicle as well as on its country of origin. If the car is imported from within the EU, it’s not going to be subjected to taxes but if it being imported from USA, the duties can get as much as 17% or more depending on the fair market value on the car. Transporting a vehicle to the country of Bulgaria from the USA is going to cost you between $1800 and $4200 depending on the size. If you can fit household goods in a 20ft container you can also ship your belongings and it’s going to be a lot cheaper.
The VAT in Bulgaria is set to 20% and it’s calculated by determining the value of the goods as well as all of the insurance and international shipping costs. In addition, you need to take care of excise taxes which could be added but this is within the discretion of the authorities in the country. You can visit the website of the Bulgaria Customs Department for additional information.
