What do I have to do?



  • A Vehicle Import Approval is required to import a road vehicle into Australia. We recommend that a Vehicle Import Approval is obtained before a road vehicle is shipped. The vehicle will not be released from the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service unless it has a Vehicle Import Approval. All costs incurred in this process are the responsibility of the importer.
  • Refer to the Vehicle Imports page on the Infrastructure Department’s to access more information on importing road vehicles to Australia.
  • We strongly recommend that if you are a first time importer that you complete the ‘Eligibility Assessment’ on this site to self-assess your eligibility.
  • Any missing documents or incomplete applications will delay the issue of a vehicle import approval for Australia.
Then we require a few details about the vehicle you want to import to Australia:
  • Dimensional measurements
  • Year of manufacture
  • Weight
  • Make
  • Model
  • New or used
  • Purchase price
  • Air conditioning
The process is designed to operate with effortless convenience for you, so you can have your car on the road once it arrives in Australia without difficulties, and you can relax with the peace of mind that is granted from professional importation vehicle services.
