This website has your answers. Believe me I read it.Hi,
Does anyone have experience with importing a car to Thailand. I realize that the duties are high, for my car around 240% but there is supposed to be a discount for the age of the car. Not sure how that works.
Mr. was busy doing crossword puzzle (I call it his mistress : ). He took me to both Australia and New Zealand for a vacation from Fiji. I don't remember which side of the road they drive on in those three countries. I should have known they are part of the Commonwealth.Hi Mr (or Mrs?) Soap... if I remember correctly, New Zealanders, like Brits, drive on the left, so steering wheel on right like in Thailand.
Useful website. I see that people on retirement visas cannot import a car. Seems that there are a lot of restrictions in addition to the high import duties. So the only people who can permanently import a car have to be on a working visa it seems, minimum one year.
Temporary imports are allowed, maximum 6 month stays, without paying any duties. However you have to deposit the equivalent to the duty on a permanent import with Thai customs, and if the car hasn't left Thailand at the expiry of the period in question, the full sum is forfeited.
ขอบคุณมากค่ะ คุณจีโน่According to Wikipedia.org , traffic in New Zealand and Australia is on the left. They don't say anything about Fiji, but their color-coded map indicates left also.
