Importing vehicles to Portugal

May 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm WEST


Vehicles from within the EU & worldwide – benefits, processes & costs

Although Portugal is known for its relatively low cost of living, vehicle prices are fairly high. For this reason, you may be considering importing your own vehicle, buying from another country or simply if you wish to have a particular model that isn’t available in Portugal, but what are the costs and would it be beneficial in your case?

Our relocation experts from Global International Relocation will be bringing us the latest information and answering your questions and concerns regarding importing vehicles to Portugal from within the EU and worldwide.

We will be looking at some of the benefits, processes & costs, including:

  • Is it worth bringing your vehicle to Portugal?
    – The requirements for tax exemption and how to apply
    – Taxes and duties, how to calculate how much you’ll have to pay if you are not eligible for tax exemption
    • If your vehicle is in Portugal, how do you proceed?
    – Obtaining the DAV: what is the DAV and why should it be obtained as soon as possible
    • What documents do you need to legalise the vehicle?
    – What is the COC
    – What is the vehicle import certificate
    – What is the registration certificate
    • The steps involved during vehicle legalisation.
    – Customs
    – IMT
    – Vehicle registration
    – Inspection
    • Tips for legalising your vehicle in Portugal.
    • European vehicles vs non-European vehicles.
