About 16 miles from Riga, the panoramic port city of Jurmala in Latvia is better known as the resort town. It is located between the Lielupe River and Gulf of Riga with a 21 miles coastline of pristine white sand beaches.
Regardless of the reason for your move, it is important to have your own transportation when you relocate to Jurmala.
However, with plenty of documents to submit and procedures to adhere to, it is essential that you know about it. With plenty of business opportunities happening, it has moved ahead after the collapse of USSR. Thus, if you plan on being in Jurmala on an extended period, it is best to have your vehicle shipped from USA. Though the roads aren’t that good but most of the roads are paved and connect the city and suburbs with ease. It is best to discuss your requirements with A1 Auto Transport service as we have over 20 years of experience in shipping the vehicles all over the world. It is important to know the closest port to your location and you will need to check with one of the shipping agents.

Submission of documents.
It is important to keep the original documents handy while make sure you have sets of copies to submit at the Port of Jurmala and at the U.S Customs. These include:
- Bill of purchase of vehicle.
- S vehicle insurance.
- Vehicle title deed.
- Driving license and passport as proof of ownership.
- Latvian Import License.
- Bill of Lading.
Additionally, it is important to know that only 12 months validity is approved of as temporary permit, as per Latvia import laws. Some of the other specific regulations include that vehicles over seven years are taxed a VAT of 18% while less aged used vehicles need to pay 20% import duty which includes the VAT and custom tariffs.
Calculate the shipping costs.
One of the important components of calculating the shipping costs includes the method of shipping you choose. As methods are priced differently, if you choose RORO, the cost will be lower as compared to if you choose container shipping. One of the shipping agents at A1 Auto Transport will help get all the details for shipping to Jurmala. You will need to prep the vehicle, clean and disinfect it before shipping.
