It is IMPERATIVE that Import Approval from the Dept of Planning and Infrastructure is received PRIOR to shipping vehicles including cars, trailers, scooters, segways, motorbikes or any other on road or off road vehicles.
Failure to ship vehicles without approval from the Dept Transport could result in Fines or even refusal which would mean the vehicle would have to be shipped back out of Australia.
Importing Motor Vehicles/Motorbikes
There are strict criteria for importing vehicles. If the motor vehicle is of an age of 30 years or more, there is no import duty. There will however be import GST of 10%. Importing brand new cars is difficult and usually not permitted.
