It is important to consider the fact that used vehicles and motorcycles are not allowed in Colombia. Additionally, before you can move a vehicle here, you are required to have an import license. To get the permit to import and clear the Colombian Customs Department and the United States Customs, you are required to submit documents including:
- Motorcycle title deed
- Registration documents- VIN, year, make and model details
- Bill of sale
- Purchase invoice
