Procedures for import of vehicles
If you plan to move to Klagenfurt for a short period of time, your vehicle will still need to go through the process necessary. You may not need to pay any duties for short term stay. You will simply need to purchase your license in order to drive legally in Austria. If you plan to move here on a long term basis or permanently, you will need to provide the following documentation:
- Ownership of your vehicle.
- NOVA tax and registration fees.
- Bill of lading.
- Certificate of Conformity.
- Proof of insurance.
- Certificate of Emissions modifications.
Importing from USA
There are different rules and regulations for vehicles that are not being imported from a country that is part of the European Union. In that case, you will need to provide proof of the vehicle's value. You will also need to have a consignment T1 note as well as a declaration that is relevant to the vehicle imported. You will then earn a discounted rate depending on what the total value. You will also need to pay all duties associated with your import to Klagenfurt.
Duties include 10% duty which is figured based on the value of your vehicle and 20% turnover import tax. You will also need to pay NOVA, or the consumption standard tax charged during importation. The authorities may waive the 10% associated duties for vehicles imported not associated with the EU. It's also important to know the rules and regulation for exporting from the United States. While importing a vehicle is time-consuming and expensive, it is sometimes necessary and so the process will need to be completed regardless. You will also be responsible for any expenses incurred while modifying your vehicle to suit the requirements of the Austrian Ministry for Transport. This includes all noise, emissions, and lights.
When preparing your vehicle for importing, you will need to work with your agent, A1 Auto Transport Company in order to ensure a smooth transaction. Knowing the totals for all the duties that you will be required to pay will help you determine what type of shipping method you should choose.
Container shipping is one option. You will have a choice of two sizes; 20 foot and 40 foot. You can fill up the container with your vehicle and all you need before the move. Your container will then be placed on the deck of the ship after it is sealed. It is then offloaded once it reaches the new port.
Roll On/ Roll Off method is the most affordable way to import your vehicle. You will need to simply pay for your vehicle to park on the deck of the ship. With this method, the vehicle is driven onto the deck of the ship and fastened down while in route. You will need to drain the air conditioning gas and rid the vehicle of your belongings before it can board the ship.
