Shipping A Car To Singapore

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Most cars shipped to Singapore from the U.S. cost between $2,300 to $5,900 to transport.
  • The majority of shipments to the area, vehicle or other cargo, come by way of shipping container so cars that fit inside are more affordable to import.

Importing a vehicle into Singapore can be a costly and complex endeavor.  It is extremely important to do the research ahead of time, so that you can make an informed decision as to whether shipping your own personal vehicle into Singapore is the right move for you.  You will also want to enlist the help of a very reputable auto transport company to help you through the process.

Only vehicles 3 years old or NEWER are allowed to be imported into Singapore.  The age is determined by the date of its first registration in a foreign country.  An additional charge of $10,000 is due for any USED vehicle imported into Singapore.  This fee is not mandated for new vehicles.  However, vehicles are only considered new if:

  • The vehicle is imported DIRECTLY from the manufacturer within 3 months of the manufactured date.

REQUIREMENTS

  • All USED vehicles must undergo an emissions test at VETL (http://www.vetl.com.sg/) at the point of importation to determine Carbon Dioxide figures and fuel efficiency.  This information will determine the surcharge or the rebate for the Carbon Emission-based Vehicle Scheme (CEVS)
  • The Land Transport Authority accepts vehicles that are compliant with internationally recognized safety standards, such as those used in the United States, but appropriate documentation is required
  • Proof of compliance with exhaust emissions standards must also be supplied
  • Right Hand Drive only vehicles allowed to be imported
  • Proof of current registration
  • Safety Glass must be up to the international recognized standards(no less than 70% light transmittance for front windows and no less than 25% light transmittance for rear windows)
  • Modifications to vehicle must be approved by the manufacturer
  • Asbestos-free brake and clutch lining
  • CFC-free Air Conditioning

After the rigorous verification of the vehicle, the next step is to prepare to pay the customs duty rate, which is 20% for a motor car and 12% for a motorcycle.  The percentage is based on the transaction value of the vehicle, and includes the freight and insurance charges (known as the CIF).  To determine this value, you must complete Form SC-A-012.
