One way to prove this by having the title in your name for longer than the time required. You will also have to provide a current US ID.
For those who are importing a vehicle for sale, there are more regulations around this. Any vehicle over 25 years old is fine, and does not need a lot of organization.
Newer cars on the other hand are not so easy. They have to be converted to right hand drive, and conform to Australian standards.
This can cost up to and more than $25k and you will be subject to 9% GST on the value. Ask your Schumacher Cargo moving specialist for more information
