i think you will find most people will tell you to sell it. Apart from costing couple thousand bucks shipping the paper work must be horrendous. Have to pay import duty into Europe too and registration fees, plates etc.
i heard if it is for example a mercedes benz or porsche made in germany, then YOU DO NOT have to pay import taxes for germany, maybe for all europe !? because they are german products, if its an american japanese or whatever car you will have to pay
No, once the vehicle has been exported from the EU, either new or used, it would be a re-import with duty.
The only case it would be exonerated from duties would be minimal value or that it has been used in the EU and never been "exported"... meaning that it would still have a valid EU registration (which would be "illegal" here, as a vehicle only should be registered in the country it is being used last).
I think that the import segment of your little project is the easiest to get solid information on; form the EU country's customs office (your local consulate will be glad to give you the contact).
Unless it is perceived locally as a vehicle of historic value to the DR, I doubt that you will have a lot of problems exporting your vehicle. But then, I wouldn't bank on my doubts.
I can only speak for belgium... if a car is older than 25 years it will become vintage and is excempt from taxes...
We did a lot of import/export from Antwerp harbour... let me think a little and I may get you a name of an expiditing company there...
I know a store in Antwerp which imports cars all the time... let me look them up... and I will forward you their contact info... I know the people and they will be quite happy to help you with their contacts...
