Laws and Shipping Regulations
In order to ship your car to Iceland, it’s important for you to have owned it for at least 6 months in advance. You should have lived in the USA for at least 12 months prior to the shipping. It’s against the law to sell your car or to allow anyone else to drive it after the import. If you plan to leave, you will have to take the car with you. You are allowed to take the delivery of the car when you get your passport authenticated.

Of course, the Icelandic Custom regulations will require certain documents in order to get the import approved. These documents should be submitted at least 7 days in advance and they include:
- Registration certificate
- Passport of the owner
- Residence visa or a work permit
- Freight shipping invoice
- Bill of Lading
- Title deed in the name of the owner
- Driving license
- Internationally valid car insurance
Requirements to Ship Your Vehicle
In order to transfer your vehicle in Iceland, you need to have registered it in the USA and you need to have lived outside of Iceland for no more than a year before the import. The time limit should be about 30 days. Before you export your car, you need to clear all of the fees and taxes. You should get a quote from the shipping company in order to be clear about the overall break-up of the prices. Keep in mind that the shipping method is going to have a significant impact on the total price.
The shipping methods are two: RORO shipping and container shipping. The former is quicker and cheaper but it’s going to leave your car exposed to the elements. You can’t ship anything with your car. The latter, on the other hand, is slower and more expensive but your car will be perfectly protected safely stored within a shipping container. You can also bring as many belongings as you can fit within the container – this is a significant benefit when you think about it. You might want to consult one of our business representatives or get in touch with the Embassy of Iceland.
