*Using the RoRo (roll on, roll off) method is less expensive and shipments can be completed in fewer days. Contact us now for a free RoRo quote.

Importing a vehicle into Thailand for your own personal use can be overwhelming if you do not have the correct documents and knowledge, in addition to a trustworthy and reliable auto transport company.   The first step in the process is to determine whether the vehicle will be in Thailand permanently or temporarily.  If you only intend to keep the vehicle in Thailand for less than 6 months, then it is best to follow the temporary import process.  Any longer than 6 months, however, requires the permanent import process.

Temporary import

Although no customs duties, taxes, or fees are payable for the temporary import of a vehicle, a bank guarantee or cash deposit must be secured in the total amount, in case the vehicle is not re-exported out within the time period allowed (6 months).  Upon timely exportation, the importer will receive back his/her cash deposit or bank guarantee.

Permanent import

Significant differences in import policies apply for new vehicles and used vehicles.  The most important of which is the need for an “Import Permit” from the Foreign Trade Department of the Ministry of Commerce which is required only for used vehicles PRIOR to shipping the used car into Thailand.

Documents Needed

  • Import Goods Declaration (along with at least 3 copies)
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Commercial Invoice.
  • Release Order.
  • Insurance Invoice.
  • Passport.
  • House Certificate and an ID Card (used cars only)
  • Vehicle Registration (used cars only)
  • IMPORT PERMIT (used cars only)

Procedure

  1. Either the importer or the car transport agent submits the above documentation to Customs at the port of entry.
  2. Customs checks off all documentation, assigns a Declaration number, and then calculates the amount due for taxes and duties.
  3. The importer/agent pays to the Cashier Office all of the liable taxes and duties.
  4. The importer shows the receipt for payment to Customs, so the vehicle can be released from Customs custody.

Because of the extensive documentation needed, and the complex procedure, it is in your best interest to hire a reputable auto transport company.  Armed with the best resources and supported by a great company, importing your vehicle into Thailand can be easier than you may think.

Descriptions for A1’s Overseas Transport Methods

  • LoLo Shipping: This overseas shipping service requires the help of a crane to lift your cargo safely onto and off of your the boat. A1 strongly urges this service to those shipping large inoperable vehicles and crated cargo.
  • RoRo Shipping: This is the cheapest shipping service available through us. Your cargo must be capable of rolling onto and off of the ship, meaning it must be operable. This is a popular open air service that leaves your cargo exposed to bad weather conditions and other potential outdoor hazards. Make sure the value of your cargo is fully covered under our insurance plans before it is shipped off.
  • Container Shipping: Container shipping is available to those with heavy equipment that fits inside of a 40ft shipping container. Since this shipping service protects your cargo the greatest, it tends to cost more than the other available options.
  • Flat Rack Shipping: Flat rack shipping uses a metal frame to secure your cargo before it is placed on top of the ship for its travels to Thailand. The frame with the cargo still fastened securely, is then lifted off of the ship with caution.

★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
