Hello Guys,

First let me explain I am a student in Moscow, Russia. I will be (hopefully :lovepot:) graduating in the summer of 11'. I have scouted a car in Krasnoyarsk that I would like to bring back home (Malaysia). So I have several problems that I need solved. I hope some of you folks here may be able to help me with attaining my dream car :).

Here's the entire situation as it stands;


Rules of Malaysia States, a Student studying in a foreign country may apply for an Approved Permit, to bring back a car home, I need to fulfill the following criteria.

1) Registration of Car In My Name for more than 9 months
2) Insurance under my name for more than 9 months
3) An Invoice/Receipt of Purchase of Vehicle (How is this done from a private seller?)
4) Deregistration of Registration of the vehicle (From former owner)
5) Car Inspection Certificate
6) Export Certificate (From the Russian Port)



So, considering how difficult money is to come by, especially as a student, I completely do not wish to be conned, or undergo fines or excessive unnecessary payments for doing something incorrectly.


Here are things that need to be done:

1) Transport of vehicle from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow (Possibly via Truck). How much would such a dastavka service cost?

2) Insurance, how much are we talking about here?

3) Customs, well the seller implies it's Свободная эксплуатация по России.

4) There are no sea surrounding Moscow, where is the closest port? Is it safe? How much does Insurance cost to secure the transportation of the car? Furthermore what are the rates of transporting the car all the way to Malaysia.


Guys,

I'm not looking to be spoon fed with all the answers, however I do request your help in pointing me in the right direction. I would appreciate giving me contact numbers for the offices that I should visit/call to find out more information. I would also like if someone who has done this prior to me to explain how the entire process goes, how much it roughly costs and the difficulty of it all.


I'd appreciate any and all help,



Happy new year guys,

As far as I know, very few people bring their cars OUT of Russia, since russian customs regulations are quite strict in exporting used vehicles. It is still not clear if your car has registration plates and if YOUR name is in car registration certificate (паспорт транспортного средства). If not, you won't be able to even "deregistrate" it coz you're not the owner of it.

Regarding the things you said to be done, answers are the following:

1. Vladivostok is more closer to Krasnoyarsk than Moscow. The most of exporting operations in Siberia and Far East are held via Vladivostok & Nakhodka ports. But it'll look quite strange to transport your right-wheeled (i'm sure it is) car to the place where all the right handed cars are spreaded throughtout this country. If still so, i think to buy a 20" container you have to pay about 40000RUR
2. The insurance will take 20 percent of carcost, if i remember correctly
3. What is Свободная эксплуатация по России?? How does it look like?
4. See above. It would be better for you to sell this car in Russia and buy a new one directly thru Japanese auctions. Japanese exporting regulations are more friendly to foreign buyers.

Thank you Altezza for your time.


Okay, here's the thing, if you do not have an Approved Permit (AP) to Import cars to Malaysia, you are imposed a horrendous 200-300% tax. This is a protectionist policy in place to ensure the sale of local cars :(.


The only way to get an approved permit is if you own a car in a foreign country that you are studying in/working in. So, if they see the car is coming from Japan, I won't be able to apply the AP and will be ordered to pay the Tax.

So the only option I have is to export it from Russia. I do not think it's possible to ship the car from Japan to Russia, and then Malaysia without paying taxes in both countries :)

Don't waste your time and money, friend. It is not the efficient way to make your dream come true.
