Importation and registration of your motor vehicle in Cyprus.

1. Please be informed that according to the existing Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Legislation there is no restriction to register in Cyprus a private saloon vehicle previously registered in European Union Countries.

2. The registration fees and annual road tax are based on the engine capacities of each vehicle as follows:

Registration Fees Road Tax
(a) 1 cc - 1450 cc - 0.17 per c.c. X 0.04 per c.c.
(b) 1451 cc - 1650 cc - 0.26 per c.c. X 0.06 per c.c.
(c) 1651cc - 2050 cc - 0.42 per c.c. X 0.12 per c.c.
(d) 2051 cc - 2250 cc - 0.51 per c.c. X 0.15 per c.c.
(e) 2251 cc - over - 1.02 per c.c. X 0.20 per c.c.



3. As regards Excise Duty for the importation of vehicles relevant information may be obtained from the Director of the Department of Customs and Excise, Michael Karaoli, 1096 Nicosia, Cyprus Fax No. (00357) 22 30 2031.

hope this helps - Pathfinder

I cannot see why you would want to go through all the rigmarole of buying a car in the UK when it wouldn't be in your name then bring it over here and go through god knows what trying to register it when it dosn't legally belong to you if it is in someones elses name.
Surely it would be far easier just buying one over here?

Hello Veronica,
You are fast!
You would be right if the car was not a Bentley Turbo R. I have not seen any in Cyprus and i have a Bentley and Jaguar virus.

Finally i can buy the (cheap) UK RHD ones and drive it on the right (read left) side of the road but it seems that the 'European citizen concept' doesn't work yet.

Maybe a reason not to do it would be the 1,02 per cc tax which adds up quicly with a 6.000 cc engine

It seems i must find a trick to have the car on my name in UK or find another drug for my virus...

Well I hope you have bottomless pockets A car of that size engine will cost you an arm and a leg to tax over here let alone the cost of transporting it and then the hassle if it isnt in your name. The Cypriot authorities could think its a stolen car and throw you in jail Believe me you don't want to spend even one night in there. It really is dry bread and water for breakfast unless you have someone wwho can bring you some decent food in

Money is not my main concern. Before i will have it transported from Southampton (only € 700 and very affordable...) i will post a message here so maybe somebody will visit me in the Cyprus jail. Will be mainly bread because water will be an even bigger problem in jail then it already is on the island.

If all goes well you will see a red Bentley Turbo R cruising around Chlorakas soon. Not so far from where you live so jump in front of the car if you see me and make yourself known. IF...i can manage to have it imported...
Thanks for your replies and for the good work here in the forum!
