Submit Verified Documents
If you are a resident of Iceland and want to leave to go abroad, you will want to make sure that your vehicle is ready for the transport, have your visa and passport updated, and have all the necessary paperwork available. The U.S Customs and Iceland Directorate of Customs will need to verify and validate the import by checking the documents.
- International car insurance proof
- Driver’s license
- Registration card
- Vehicle title
- Power of Attorney signed in case you cannot make it to pick up your vehicle once it clears customs
- Bill of sale
- Your passport
- Work/Resident permit

These documents must be copied for everyone to have in their possession throughout this process. You will need a copy for the port in the United States that you will be exporting from and the port you are going into. A1 Auto Transport Service will also need a copy as well as keep a copy for your own records.
Your vehicle must be registered in the United States if you are coming from Iceland or in Iceland if you are moving from the United States. You will have to take care of obtaining the proper licensing within the first thirty days of being in the new country.
