Importing and Registering Vehicles in Hong Kong
When importing and registering a vehicle in Hong Kong, there are essentially three government departments you will be dealing with. They are the Customs and Excise Department, Environmental Protection Department and the Transport Department.
The next steps briefly outline the required procedural process.
Step 1: Must meet the exhaust and noise emissions standard
- Anyone considering shipping their automobile to Hong Kong will need proof and documentation that your vehicle is up to standards with its emissions either from a testing laboratory, similar to performing a smog test, or from the auto manufacturer.
Step 2 : Importation
- Cars imported into Hong Kong do not require a customs tax but it is mandatory to declare a full and accurate list of the vehicle and its contents within 14 days. Next you must submit an import return form within 30 days to avoid fines or jail time.
Step 3 : Taking a Vehicle Examination
- To get your vehicle inspected, you need to visit the To Kwa Wan Vehicle Examination Center. Show up with the original certificate of exemption regarding the emissions. After passing, there will be an exam fee and then you will be issued a certificate of roadworthiness
Step 4 : Vehicle Registration and Licensing
- First, submit a finished application form with the requested documents to the Hong Kong Licensing Office of Transport Department. After your documents are verified, you then will need to pay for the initial registration tax and fee.
- This amount is based upon the value of the vehicle times the applicable tax rate. There is also a license fee and levy for Traffic Accident Victim Assistance Fund for.
