Vehicle Requirements for Entering Tonga

All new and used vehicles entering Tonga must comply with government regulations To ensure that the vehicle meets those requirements, all automobiles entering the island must undergo a certification process. During this phase, the importer must provide documentation showing that the vehicle meets government approved safety standards. For instance, all imported automobiles must have a correct odometer reading and vehicles with at least nine passenger seating must comply with frontal impact safety standards.

Vehicles imported into Tonga must also undergo a physical inspection to make sure that the vehicle that it’s components meets standard safety requirements.

Customs Charges and Tariff Duty

In Tonga, motor vehicles aren’t subject to tariff duties. However, ambulances and mobile homes are the exceptions.  Customs charges are calculated based on the market value of the vehicle overseas. It also includes insurance costs and vehicle registration fees.

Motor vehicles are also subject to goods and services tax (GST) which is 15%. GST is based on the customs value of the vehicle, the shipping fees, and insurance costs.

  3. Invoice that shows the price of the vehicle and the year it was bought
  4. Registration papers

Protecting Your Vehicle

Tongan custom’s department advises against packing personal belongings in an imported vehicle for several reasons:

  • During the times your vehicle is not containerized which is while it’s awaiting shipment or collection, your belongings will be susceptible to theft.
  • Also, the shipper has to account for everything that is inside of the vehicle when it arrives at Custom’s department

Our Most Popular Ways to Ship Heavy Equipment and Oversized Cargo Overseas

With A1 Auto Transport, you have a bunch of different international shipping options at your disposal. Below are some of the more common overseas transport methods we like to offer our customers shipping heavy equipment and oversized cargo to Tonga.

  • The Lift On/Lift Off method of transport, otherwise known as the LoLo shipping method, uses a crane to pick up and place your construction materials, inoperable vehicle, or crated cargo on the boat.
  • The Roll On/Roll Off method of transport, otherwise known as the RoRo shipping method, is the most cost efficient and affordable option. This open air service requires your vehicle to be operable so it can use a ramp to get on and off the cargo ship. There may be a 15ft height restriction to use this method.
  • The Flat Rack shipping method secures your cargo to an open sided and open top shipping container which basically resembles a metal frame.
  • Container shipping is the safest overseas shipping method. It offers the most protection from the inclement weather since your cargo is protected within the container by its walls and ceiling. Unavoidably, this is the most expensive option but it’s only available to you if your heavy cargo fits into a 40ft container.

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.
