Registration Process & Required Documents For Vehicles Shipped To Taiwan

Registering an imported vehicle in Taiwan does involve a process with a few steps to it, but it’s not much different from it would be in any other country. Almost every country in the world has the same type of requirements for registering an imported car or truck. You’ll need to present a set of documents, have your vehicle inspected, and then pass an emissions test.

Taiwan Vehicle Registration Process

Required Vehicle Registration Documents

Any time an imported vehicle is registered in Taiwan, the following documents will be required:

  • Passport
  • Driver’s license
  • Bill of sale
  • Title & registration
  • Visa & work certificate
  • Bill of lading

There may be additional documents beyond these that are also needed, depending on the circumstances of your import, as well as the potential for changes in the process. Check with your shipping service, or the local consulate for more information on current restrictions and requirements.

What is a bill of lading and why do you need it?

The bill of lading is a document used in shipping that describes what type of cargo is being moved, from where to where, for whom, and other details. In terms of shipping a vehicle, it includes things like the make, model, year, VIN, the information of the owner and that of the shipper. Essentially, it verifies that the vehicle you’re presenting for registration is the same one you’ve had shipped.

Taiwan Vehicle Inspection & Additional Registration Resources

Vehicle Inspection Test

The vehicle inspection test in Taiwan is not as thorough as it is in some other countries, but it is still required to register an imported car. As with most preregistration inspections, things like your brakes, lights, and steering will be tested for safety. You’ll also have to get an emissions test to certify that the vehicle meets the environmental standards for Taiwan.

If the inspection is not passed, you will have one month to make the necessary repairs and attempt the inspection again. Vehicle examinations are carried out by the Ministry of Transport and Communications (see link under the resource section).

Satisfied Customers

“Not too long ago, I’ve shipped a couple cars to California from Maine, and choosing A1 Auto Transport paid off from beginning to end. Of course, I first got a bunch of quotes from different companies. I wanted to make an educated decision, and this led me to A1, having some of the best quotes and reputation of the bunch. Their customer service was impeccable, and Joe’s knowledge of the job showed even through the initial conversations I had with him over the phone. I could reach him at any time during the day. My schedule is a bit troublesome, so I called him at 7 am and 10 pm, yet he still answered in the same polite and professional manner. My cars arrived 2 days earlier. Considering there were 6 others on the truck he picked them up with, that’s really something. There was no damage done to them during transport, though being summer, I guess pebbles and theft are the only concerns in such cases. Thank you Joe for an awesome, stress free experience!”

“Hiring A1 Auto Transport was far cheaper than I thought it would be. I’ve always imagined auto transport services to be expensive as hell. It was easy to get in touch with them and the pickup was scheduled for the very next day. Despite being in Bucharest at the time, I was able to arrange for its travel from Atlanta to Indiana without much of a fuss. I really appreciated the driver’s efforts to keep me in the know and loved how understanding and helpful the staff was overall. My car got to Indiana on the promised day within the time frame they estimated. It was in good condition, with no damage suffered during transport. I heard open transport often gets vehicles scratched by the weather or from pebbles on the road, but nothing happened to mine. I’ll get back to you guys when I go back to Atlanta.”

“I love A1 Auto Transport! Last year, we left Pennsylvania for Hawaii on Vacation. We’re pretty comfortable people, so we found having to take the bus everywhere a huge pain. We wanted to do something different and take our car with us this time around. After a quick web search, we chose A1 Auto Transport as our go to company, a very wise decision if I may say so. They arranged for a truck to come pickup my car and even took care of the sea transport part of the equation. We told Joe when we wanted to go on vacation and for how long, and he planned the transport around it. He had his men pickup the car and send it to the port, from where it travelled by boat to the island. He timed everything just right. We arrived on Monday, and picked up the car on Monday afternoon. It’s safe to say it was the best month of our lives. Thank you A1 for making things so much easier! We returned at the end of summer, and Joe once again pulled through for us and got the car back to Pennsylvania in one piece. It was real simple to use their service and they’re worth every dollar. Highly recommend!”

“It was great to work with Joe. He let me choose the communication method (phone, text, or email), and updated me regularly. He took my Honda from Chicago to Washington, and it all went smoothly. The driver took a thorough look at my car and made sure I received it in the same condition. To pick it up, I had to take it to a parking lot large enough for a truck to fit in. I was out of town when the car got to Washington, so Joe took care of it until I arrived with no extra charge. He was there when I got back to greet me as well. The move was stress free and straightforward.”

“I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through. The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person. They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up? So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast! If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport. I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him! The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!”
