Shipping Methods

There are two different shipping options to choose from when shipping your vehicle to Japan. The first shipping option is the container shipping method. This type of shipping is more expensive but it does allow you to ship personal/household items over with your vehicle. The container secures your vehicle and all your belongings during transport.

The second shipping option to choose from is the Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method. This way of shipping involves the vehicle being placed onto the deck of the ship where it is safely harnessed for freight transportation. You will only be able to leave floor mats, a spare tire, and your car jack inside the car during transit. This method of shipping is the cheapest way to send your vehicle over.

Importing Procedures

Japanese regulations and requirements are different depending on whether you choose to import short term or long term. If you want to bring your vehicle over short terms, you will need to plan on staying less than one year and fill out a CPD form or Carnet de Passage en Douane. This is an ownership identification document that you will need to keep in your vehicle at all times. The Japan Automobile Federation (JAF) requires that you bring this form with you when you register your vehicle in Sapporo. If you plan to stay in Sapporo for more than one year, you will need to file for permanent import and fill out the necessary paperwork. Documents you will need include:

  • Proof of ownership.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Vehicle Registration.
  • Any other document that pertains to your vehicle ownership.

You will need to pay any customs duties once your vehicle arrives at Sapporo port. Your vehicle will need to pass all emissions tests in order to gain clearance into Sapporo. If you want more information on shipping to Japan, you can contact the Japanese Embassy.
