The Ins & Outs Of Shipping A Car To Ukraine

Shipping A Car To Ukraine


Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?

  • Shipping costs to the Ukraine from the U.S. start at $2,400 for basic cars and go up to $5,200 for larger vehicles and premium services.
  • There are additional costs that apply once the car arrives, both for import taxes and registration fees.

There are two factors that complicate the issue or exporting a car to the Ukraine currently. One is the political turmoil in the area due to the conflict between Russian and Ukraine. A related concern is that there may be sanctions imposed by the U.S. that will cause more restrictive trade agreements in the region, making it more difficult (and expensive) to ship a car to the country.

The second factor is that the laws which govern auto imports in Ukraine are confusing, which is made worse by the fact that the Ukrainian government reversed course on a law that would have lowered the tax on imported vehicles. We’ll go over the details below, but it’s important to keep in mind that there are likely future changes ahead that will affect import taxes and laws in the country.

The Ukraine had planned to reduce import duties for vehicles, but they reversed the decision and passed legislation that increases the import and utilization taxes on any foreign vehicle that is brought into the country. Import duties for vehicles coming into Ukraine are assessed based on the following criteria. Percentages are based on the value of the vehicle.


  • 6.46 % for engine volume between 1,500 CC
  • 12.95 % for engine volume between 1,500 & 2,200 CC


For temporary stays in the country, vehicles are granted two months in Ukraine before they must be registered with the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Vehicles that are shipped to Ukraine must be manufactured in the past five years.
