Requirements for Shipping Your Car
Once you know that you are shipping your vehicle to Iran, you will need to gather up the necessary paperwork, check with the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, and hire A1 Auto Transport Service to assist you in your transport needs. Before you begin the process, you will need to gather up the following documents:
- Proof of residency in Iran
- Permit issued by the Ministry of Commerce
- Your vehicle registration
- Your vehicle title
- Your drivers license
- A current passport
- Proof of ownership
- Receipt from paying all duties
You will need to get copies of all these documents and keep the originals for yourself as you will need to show these at the time of registering the vehicle in Shiraz.
