Shipping A Car To Turkey

Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Cars shipped to Turkey from the U.S. generally cost from $1,500 to $4,100 to transport to the area.
  • Vehicles shipped to the eastern part of Turkey usually cost slightly more to ship since it’s not as accessible by boat.

There are two options for a non-Turkish national wanting to import a vehicle into Turkey.  Both routes will require a little research, proper documentation, and a reputable auto transport company such as A-1 Auto Transport.  The first option is to import the vehicle under temporary status which is only good for a period of 180 days or less.  The second option is permanent status, but this route is only available for people that fall into very few select demographics.

Temporary Status

Temporary status is ideal for someone entering the country while using a 3 month visa.  It is VERY important to remember that the vehicle may not stay in Turkey for a period longer than 180 days.

Permanent Status

As a rule, foreigners are not allowed to permanently import vehicles into Turkey, but exceptions are made for people who are moving for work, school, or as a retired foreigner.  If one of these scenarios applies to you, you need request a “Blue Card” (Alien Vehicles Temporary Entrance Carnet) from the Turkey Touring and Automobile Association.  Because this particular process is much more involved, it is best to just go straight to the source to verify the proper documents,  The application form can also be linked directly from the webpage.
