Temporary permit

The vehicles can be imported to Argentina for a temporary stay or for permanent importation. Therefore, you will need a temporary entry permit or an importation permit. A temporary import is completed at the point of entry once you reach Argentina. This information is to help you with the process so you can avoid delays.

There are a few steps to take in order to reach the Argentinian consulate so you can start the process of bringing over your vehicle. It starts with the Law No 25,871 and the amendments and the Decree No. 616 issued on May 6, 2010, a foreigner with a permanent residency in Argentina and returning back to their country, foreigners that have a temporary visa to visit the country, and diplomats as well as military personnel.

For Permanent Residency

If you are a foreigner returning to Argentina, and you have a permanent residence visa, you can import one personal car or motorcycle that is used or two vehicles are allowed for each family. To ship a vehicle, you must be at least twenty-one years old, and the vehicle must be registered to you for a minimum of three months before you arrived in Argentina. You must file and be approved for permanent residency before your vehicle reaches the port in Argentina. If you are importing a new vehicle, there are separate regulations that must be adhered to. It is essential to realize that only certain new car models and makes are allowed in Argentina.

If a vehicle is valued at less than or as much as USD 15,000 or it has the equivalent in another currency can be exempt from import duties, taxes, or other charges. If a vehicle is more than $15,000 in value, then the estimated costs are between 80 and 100 percent of the vehicle's value and that includes taxes and freight.

A vehicle you are importing cannot arrive in La Plata, Argentina more than three months before you arrive in the country and no later than six months after you arrive. Once you arrive here, the car can be released after proper documentation is presented. Any vehicle that arrives before the owner will be held at customs.

Required Documentation for Importing

When you are ready to import your vehicle, you will need the following documents in order to complete the process. These documents include:

  • Proof of identity such as a passport with a visa or DNI.
  • Foreigners with permanent residence status in the country will need certification issued by the National Directorate of Migration.
  • Original purchase invoice of the vehicle or motorcycle.
  • Driving license.
  • Original registration documents.
  • Three original Ocean Bill of Lading in the vehicle owner's name.
  • Certificate of residence - for those returning to Argentina, you must have the certificate of residence from your last location in the other country for the two previous. You will also need to provide a certificate of residence that states you have lived in the country of origin for twelve months or more. You can get this certificate from the Argentinian Consulate in the place you resided before.
  • A pre-shipment inspection certificate.

All documentation that is issued must be certified as well as authenticated by the consulate with the jurisdiction in the country. Documents will need to be translated by a certified translator. Diplomats and military personnel can find the documents they need for import from the Argentinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
