Short-term move: If you need to import vehicle from any country of the European Union to Vienna, you do not need to pay duties because the EU works as single customs community. Just purchase license plate transfers along with a short-term insurance policy for duration of the Austrian stay.
Permanent move: For those that need to settle permanently in Vienna, you will have to follow the prevalent licensing laws. You need to submit necessary documents, which are as follows:
- Ownership proof along with bill of vehicles sales
- NOVA tax and registration fees
- Conformity certificate to ensure vehicle safety
- Bill of Lading
- Insurance documents
- Emission certificate
Importing from outside of European Union
Import regulations prevalent in Austria regarding vehicles from countries not affiliated to European Union is different. You will have to provide the necessary documents that prove the vehicle value conclusively. Besides this, you will also have to produce a consignment T1 note and a declaration related to the import. In certain situations, you can earn a customs discounted rate by providing preferential origin proof. Along with the above documents, you will also need to pay appropriate duties for importing your vehicle to Vienna.
This includes 10% duty relating to the car value, a 20% turnover import tax, and NOVA or the consumption standard tax payable during importation. For the European countries not a part of EU, the authorities may waive the 10% associated duties if you can produce documents to prove preferential origin.
Besides such non-EU regulations, you need to know about US specific importation rules. Before you can import the car to Austria from US, it is important to convert it to existing specifications of the country. It is a time-consuming and expensive process as Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology has regulations related to noise, emissions, and lights. Besides ensuring compliance with the current laws, you may have to change some parts of the vehicle before moving it from the United States.
