a heads up on importing

Recommended Posts

smokey

If you ever plan on trying to import a car or bike by using the NDI program which is where your wife went to the us or europe and can prove she was there over one year and worked she is able to import ONE car or bike ... dont get to excited you still have to pay tax and its based on the unit value more info then this is thru pm only ... but make sure 10000% her name is on the title....  or its a no go on the philippines side... i assumed because we are married it did not matter and i was wrong.... i still dont have permission yet from all parties but i did have to change the title fast...

Wouldn't just selling the car in The US and then buying an equivalent car in The Philippines be cheaper and less hassle in most cases?

There is a company based in Clark that imports Corvettes and Mustangs to rebuild.

From what I understand they are exported.

Does this only apply to vehicles? Did you have to jump through any hoops to import the appliances for your house? (washer, dryer, stove, oven, refrigerator etc.)

As a returning ofw your wife is allowed a one time permit to bring one bike or car its called a NDI you still have some tax but the amount is determined later by your representative pm for more info

Should be no problem for you!

 

You have me confused with member miles high

The specific rules you have discovered are EXACTLY the reason i had to sell off my bikes before moving here. So many conflicting stories but we got the truth in the end. Then realised that we did not have the time left to change titles over or to even get a title in the first place for one of them!! about selling off bikes you have had for 20 years that you have restored from the ground up. Difficult decision, but a realistic one.

Wont work!!!!

Best you PM Smokey for the full regs but its like this from memory.

 

Registration/ title in her name for min of 6 mnths.

She has to have been abroard more than 3 (?) years

She has to prove working for at minimum 1 year.

Income related to cost of car she owns. So a cleaner cant bring in a Lambo.

Possibly bank withdrawls or receipt for purchase of vehicle in her name.....................

 

Ask the clown!!!!

So far it's been my experience that NOTHING is impossible if you find the right path

bottom line if you want to bring your bike or car and have an acr or are married i can lead you to the path of least resistance and i found that path thru trial and error  any way you bring a car or bike expect to pay some fee and taxes.. there are only two sure things in life my mother used to say... death and taxes and till you reach one you will pay the other

Really well real grief can come in many forms like , drinking or doing drugs or dating women who are to young to legally buy beer or renting a gf by the hour,or smoking we all do and have things that confuse others but that is fine and just so you shed no tears for me I have already been offered 1.8 million p for the car but I want to keep this great investment and wish I could of imported two vets but I have NOT received all the clearances I need yet so its always possible I might not be lucky enough to bring this great investment
