Shipping regulations and requirements
Short-term move: If you need to get you car imported from any other country of the EU to Villach you won’t be required to pay taxes and you’d only have to purchase license plate transfer and insurance policy for the duration.
Permanent Move: You are going to have to follow the already established regulations which require you to provide:
- Proof of ownership.
- NOVA tax as well as registration fees,
- Certificate of conformity.
- Bill of lading.
- Emission certificate.
Importing from outside of the EU.
The regulations which govern the import in Austria from countries outside of the EU are rather different and you would have to provide proper documentation to show the price of the car. Furthermore, you’d have to show a Consignment T1 note as well as a declaration which is related to the import. In some situations, you can get a discounted rate by providing origin proof. You’d also have to pay the regular duties of import which include 10% of the value, 20% turnover tax of import as well as the NOVA tax or the one for the consumption standard tax which is payable during the importation.
For European countries, which aren’t part of the Union, the authorities are going to waive the first 10% charge. However, besides those rules, you’d have to be aware of the specific import rules for US citizens. Before you can import your car from the US you’d have to convert it according to the specifications of the country, which is a lengthy and time-consuming process and it’s going to cost you a lot of money. There are numerous regulations which are regarding the noise, the lights, and the emissions. Besides all this, you might be required to change certain parts of the car prior to importing it from the US.
There is a wide range of different documents and procedures that you’d need to take care of and that’s why it’s advisable to rely on the A1 Auto Transport service which is definitely going to help you. If you want to get an estimate for the shipping you are also going to have to account for the shipping method as they are priced differently.
The first choice in front of you is through the Ro/Ro method which is the cheapest. However, your car has to be completely empty and there should be nothing in it but the spare tire, car jack, and floor mats. Container shipping, on the other hand, is more convenient as you would be allowed to ship other personal belongings with you in the container. Furthermore, your vehicle is going to be properly protected from the elements, unlike if you go for the RORO method.
