You are right, it’s crazy to have black leather in the summer here. When I leave my car in the sun for a couple of hours while swimming, the beige leather gets already very hot where it’s exposed to the sun, I can’t imagine black leather! I would need to cover the car.

@designer_phil So, I’m new to Pt to English translations. Does “in spite of” mean that it can be both?  Our Lexus is in Miles, but kms are a smaller inside circle, so it does have both, but kms aren’t the primary.

@800 So does the DMV mailing need to be given to the IMT office unsealed like our FBI reports?

@gerry Hi Gerry, I’m new to this forum and have been looking for information on importing vehicles from the US. I was interested in listening to this webinar, but it looks like it’s not posted.

I have recently become a Portuguese resident via GV but I do not own a home in Portugal.

I am researching importing my 2021 Sprinter van from the US and all I want to do at the moment is figure out how much this would cost to see if it is actually worth the hassle. The van is in prime condition with very few miles on it.

I have a few quotes from different shipping companies, but I can’t figure out the importation taxes. The simulator for Impostos sobre vehiculos gives me wildly different quotes depending on the value of the vehicle (which it says is optional) that one punches in. Who decides the value of the vehicle?

Some people infer that one can get around paying the 23% VAT. Any idea how this is done?

I’m sure the May 18th “Importing Vehicles to Portugal” webinar is full of information, so it would be really useful to be able to listen to it.

Would Automobile club Portugal be able to answer all my questions if I became a member?

Thanks for your advice on this.

Hi Kirsten,

The webinar is available and you can access via the YouTube link at the top right of this page.

However, we did not cover the specific costs for taxation and matriculation as this is dependent on the actual vehicle, specification and place of manufacture.

Yes, ACP can quote specifically as can Global International Removals – both in our business directory.

Any update on companies that can sort out the importation papers ?

A bit confused here because Mrs just contacted 3 chinese agents in Lisbon and they all sent a quote including the ISV tax (around 7000eur).

As she was legal resident of Spain before getting a Certificado de Registo (she has a French passport) in Portugal a few weeks ago and she brought her car from Spain (she bought it in 2021) my understanding is she should be exempted from the ESV tax

I’d need to register my car in Portugal as well btw, also coming from Spain, but not sure it’s still possible as I got my Certificado de Registo in July.

Thanks in advance for all input!

Thanks Mim, you beat me to it.

Jeremie, as suggested both ACP and GIR can assist with this matter and you can find both in our business directory. Both are Portuguese organisations and probably better people to speak to.
