When you relocate to the beautiful island of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea, you may need to import your car for the convenience of driving yourself to and from work and on personal outings. Renting a car in the country can be financially draining and even with the cost of shipping the car overseas, you’ll be saving money by having it on the island with you. Malta, also known as the Republic of Malta, has one of the most inviting climates of any country in the world. With tropically warm summers and very mild and warm winters, there will be plenty of time for driving around the island and seeing the ancient ruins and spectacular architecture. The roads are very modern throughout the country and when going to adjoining islands, you can take the ferry.

You’ll need to hire an auto transport company in the United States to import your car after you are already living on the island. The transport company can pick your car up in the U.S. and transport it to the port of exit and get it loaded for overseas travel. They will also be able to arrange for the car to be picked up and delivered to you in Malta if you can’t pick it up on your own. You will need to provide the transport company with certain documents prior to shipping. These documents include driver’s license, the title of the car, car insurance certificate and social security card. They will let you know what other information they need, as well as what the total cost of shipping will be.

Malta Motor Vehicle Regulations for Importing

If you plan on importing your car to Malta, you have to live on the island for no more than 6 months prior to importing and the car has to be registered to you for at least 6 months prior to shipping as well. Permanent residents of Malta won’t need to pay duty taxes for importing. You will have to provide proof of Insurance at the time of importation. You’ll have to have the vehicle registration and repair log if it applies to the car and you will have to arrange for an appointment with the Transport Malta Agency so they can fully inspect the car. This will have to be done within 7 days of the cars import to Malta. You need to have forms VEH01, VEH02, VEH03, and VEH04 filled out prior to the inspection date and you can find those on the Transport Malta website. You will also have to bring a copy of the certificate of conformity of the car which can be obtained through the car manufacturer. You will also need to pay registration on your car to have Malta tags while in the country. The registration fee is based on the value of the car as well as the type of emissions your car has. When you import your car to Malta and will only be staying short term as a tourist, you won’t have to pay new taxes, but if you will be living in the country as a permanent resident, you’ll need to pay taxes. Those who are working in Malta or attending school can receive an exemption when importing as long as you provide your work or student Visa at the time of import to Transport Malta. If you plan on staying in Malta permanently you will need to have a certificate of export on the car and will have to apply for residency. You’ll also need to get a Maltese Driving License and have the tags on your car switched over to a local plate. If you need more information on importation laws in Malta or paperwork that will need to be filled out, you can contact the Embassy of Malta in Washington, DC and they can direct you to the information you will need.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Malta

  1. Bill of lading (original)
  2. Vehicle log book (original)
  3. Invoice with cost of purchase
  4. Passport
  5. Letter of employment (if applicable)

Shipping Options

While it would be nice to just drive your car to Malta or have someone else drive it for you, it just isn’t possible since Malta is in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea and all cars must be shipped to get there. You’ll hire an auto transport company to take care of all of the shipping for you. The agent you speak to will gather all of your information and will help you decide on the type of shipping you will need. You can choose from Roro Shipping or Container Shipping when sending your car to Malta. Roro Shipping is a type of shipping that allows your car to be driven onto the ship and then secured into place for travel. Once it reaches the port in Malta, it will be driven off the ship and you can drive it from there. Roro is the least expensive and most widely used way to ship cars overseas. Container Shipping will allow you to send personal belongings with your car when you have it shipped. While it is a little more than Roro, it makes it very convenient when you’re relocating to have everything shipped all at one time. Your car, as well as any personal items, will be loaded into a secure container and then loaded onto the ship. Once the ship arrives in Malta, the container is unloaded and you can arrange to have your car and other belongings picked up at the port.

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Malta

Only trained shipping professionals should handle the overseas transport of large machinery or oversize items. Heavy-duty transport equipment and cutting-edge shipping technology are required to convey such a massive load internationally. Because of this, you can rely on A1 Auto Transport for all of your transportation requirements.

To ship your cargo to Malta through A1 you’ll need to first call in to provide us with some information and details. Once we know more about your cargo and desired shipping needs, we can let you know what your options are. Luckily, there aren’t many types of heavy equipment and oversized cargo we can’t ship.

Here is a small index of heavy equipment and oversized cargo we can transport…

  • Cranes
  • Mining Equipment
  • Compactors
  • Tractors
  • Excavator
  • Skid Steer Loaders
  • Backhoe Loaders
  • Telescopic Handlers
  • Graders
  • Asphalt Pavers
  • Trenchers
  • Rock Breakers
  • Dump Trucks and Other Large Vehicles
  • RVs
  • Pontoon Boats and Yachts
  • Harvesters

Choosing a Transport Method for Your Cargo

There are several international shipping services we offer to those looking to ship heavy equipment or oversized cargo. The type of cargo you’re transporting to Malta will determine which of these services are available to you. Once you give us some information regarding your equipment we will let you know what transport methods are open to you.

If you’re looking for the greatest protection for your cargo during its transport, container shipping provides the most security. This enclosed method of transport is only extended to those that can fit their equipment into a 40ft shipping container. For a more affordable service, the safest form of open air transport is our flat rack shipping service. Through this service, your cargo is secured to a metal frame before it goes onto the ship. If poor weather is a threat, our international transport specialists will shrink wrap your equipment to protect it further.

There are two more shipping options offered through A1. Both of these transport methods are open air services. The roll on/roll off method is the cheapest service we offer but it requires your equipment or vehicle to drive onto and off of the boat with the help of a ramp. Our other open air service, the lift on/lift off method is available to those with crated equipment or cargo that must be lifted onto the ship with the help of a crane.

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.
