    Default Importing an Auto

    I am planning on importing a 1994 Jeep Cherokee to the DR, I am just trying to get a round about figure on the cost of shipping and the taxes and duties I will have to pay as well as register and insure the car. The car will be shipped from NYC.

    Weren't the rules changed a while back to ban the importation of cars aged 10 yrs or more? Pat, search the archives, there have been many, many threads on this topic.

    For some strange reason they only allow old people --like us. Old cars no-takes away from the beauty of the country.

    Badpiece33:

    I am not sure if a 1994 is still importable, but you can import a vehicle older than 5 years. However you would pay duty as if it were a 2000 model. I do know that 1997's are still being allowed in as a business acquaintance recently shipped a 1997 Toyota.

    From New York, expect to pay anywhere from $800-$1,200 for shipping, depending on the shipper and the shipping line. Customs duties are never consistent and best handled through a shipper/broker. The good ones will take care of everything door to door, which includes matricula, plates, insurance, etc.

    Default Shipping Roulette, part two

    UPDATE: My shipping sources now confirm that passenger vehicles older than 5 years will no longer be accepted for import into the Dominican Republc after April 30, 2005. Unless, of course, you know someone in Aduana or are willling to wait until someone figures out (again) that this policy actually chokes off important sources of revenue for the Republica.

    Can a car dealer licensed to do business in the DR import a 1995 or not ? I keep hearing different answers on this.
