Ship Car To Volos
πŸ‡¬πŸ‡· Greece, (GR)

Volos is a port city in Thessaly which is located on the mainland of Greece, north of the capital Athens and about 326 kilometers away. This is the newest port city and it has the largest portion of modern buildings with a strong economy based on services, tourism and manufacturing.

If you plan on making a longer visit to the country, you may want to export your car to Greece from USA for a maximum period of about six months. There are no taxes applicable if the import is for this period. You won’t be allowed to sell the car or to let anyone else outside your family to drive it. Once that the vehicle enters Greece, you are going to be required to show proof of insurance as well as updated registration and license plate tags from the home country. If the tags expire you are going to need to visit the customs office to get temporary replacements.

Relocating to Greece.

People that are going to move to Volos in Greece permanently may consider importing a car, which is going to be considered a part of the household goods. This will not attract any tax provided you have residency permit prior to entering the country. You may apply for this while in USA. This is available for people of Greek descent and anyone who is married to a Greek citizen as well as for people who have work permit for a permanent job in the country. You must maintain the permanent residence abroad, for at least two years if you are to qualify for those conditions.

In order to be eligible for this procedure you must send a description of the car to the Greek consulate in USA. You must have purchased the vehicle 6 months prior to importing it. You will have to pay VAT even if exempted from import duties. You are also going to have to pay registration fees as well as those for the license plates. If you take advantage of the duty free option you won’t be allowed to sell the car for at least one year or you will have to pay the duty. Only you and your family members will be allowed to drive it.

Documentation.

There are a lot of documents that need handling prior to bringing the car in the country. It is considered to be a part of your household goods and you have to prove the residency outside of the country for 2 years. The documents you are going to need are:

  • Income tax returns.
  • Property tax or rent receipts.
  • Past employment proof.
  • Bills for utility.
  • Passports of all members which are going to resettle in Greece.
  • Proof of Greek citizenship as well as residency or a work permit.
  • Driver’s License, insurance plate and vehicle registration.

Tax ID Card.

You will need an AFM card with you in order to pick your car up when it arrives. You are going to need to open a bank account or to pay taxes and you can apply for the AFM card. This is relatively easy to be done. You have to take your passport and your birth certificate in order to fill out certain forms to apply. You will be given a print out with your particular AFM number stamped on it and you must take it with you when you go to pick up your car.

Inspections.

Once your car is released by authorities it is going to have to be inspected. There are three different inspections:

  • For emissions.
  • General inspection.
  • For Noise.

Once you are through with them all you can apply for registration and Greek license plates. Every vehicle that is transported for personal use cannot be sold or you will have to pay the taxes that have been waived. Call in the Embassy of Greece to know more about shipping and import of vehicles in Volos.
