Ship Your Car To Or From Rabat, Malta
The beautiful town of Rabat is located in the northern regions of Malta. The name is derived from Arabic and it means “suburb”. It used to be a suburb of the old capital of the country, but is a bust town today.
Even though there are quite a lot of vehicles shipped to Malta, it’s rather affordable in comparison. The most of the vehicles in the USA can be delivered for about $1,900 to $3,700 with certain exceptions and variations based on fuel costs and other factor- impacting variations.
Living in Malta has quite a lot of different advantages and if you want to settle down here you need to bring your vehicle here, regardless of whether you are here for work or to study or for any other personal reasons for that matter. Importing you car will provide you with the freedom to go wherever you want as well as to save money that you’d otherwise have to spend on rentals.

In order to get your vehicle there you need to have lived on the island less than six months prior to the import date. You will also need to own the vehicle for at least 6 months in advance. If you are a citizen, you won’t be charged with any duty taxes. However, you will need to show proof of the vehicles insurance. The vehicle needs to get inspected upon arrival by the Transport Malta Agency.
Furthermore, you will also need to fill and submit the VEH01-VEH04 forms and a Certificate of Conformity before it undergoes another level of inspection by the Land Transport Directorate. If you provide proof of your visa you will get exempt of paying taxes. For any further information you need to contact the Embassy of Malta in Washington, DC.
You are required to pay all of the registration and license tag charges when you drive around in the city. If you plan on staying here permanently, then you will need the Certificate of Export and apply for residency status. For additional information, you might want to talk with an official at the Embassy of Malta in USA before you ship out your vehicle.
Shipping Methods for Malta
When you import your vehicle to Malta, you can choose between Roll On/ Roll Off as well as container shipping. You will find that it’s more affordable to go with the first option, even though your car needs to be perfectly empty and it’s exposed to the elements.
If you want to avoid that or to relocate other belongings as well you need to go for Container Shipping. This is more convenient but also more expensive. These are things that you need to account for.
