Starting the Import Process.
Prior to filling out the paperwork, it would be good if you contacted the Embassy of Bolivia in order to get the most up to date rules and requirements that you need to abide by. There are different rules that you need to follow and some of them include:
- Payment of taxes and duties.
- You need to be present at the arrival of the vehicle.
- If your car is worth more than $12,000 it’s subjected to inspection.
- Only left-handed vehicles are going to be allowed.
Furthermore, you would also need to provide the following documents:
- Title deed.
- Registration documents.
- Origin certificate.
- Driver’s license.
- Residency visa.
- Details of the vehicle such as make, model and year.
- Verifying certification.
- Insurance policy.
Bolivia doesn’t allow vehicles which are older than 4 years to be imported in the country and it has also banned buses, trucks and commercial vehicles older than six years. Even if your vehicle is newer than that you would still have to acquire import clearance from the Customs Department of Bolivia. Make sure that you do not miss the arrival date as you need to be present to pick up your vehicle. If you are a returning citizen there are other requirements that you need to abide by. You will need to have lived abroad for at least a couple of years in order to get the tax exemption. This is a tax exemption that’s available only once per family. If you haven’t visited the country for more than 90 days during this period you need to pass the following requirements:
- Residence Certificate – Get that from the Consulate of Bolivia in the USA.
- Detailed Inventory with the values of your items.
- Work Certificate which proves that you’ve stayed abroad for at least 2 years.
The shipping methods are standard – you can choose between Roll On/Roll off shipping or RORO as it’s commonly referred to and Container shipping. The former is appropriate if you don’t have any personal belongings with you as you’d only be allowed to ship your vehicle. The latter, on the other hand, doesn’t pose restrictions of the kind and you can get your car delivered in a private container. The most expensive method is air shipping but it’s very expensive and not a lot of people tend to prefer it.
