My wife and i bought a house in aruba 2 years ago and are now thinking of bringing a car here. I m having a hard time finding info on the procedures and correct govt office to contact. Any help or guidance would be greatly appretiated..
Talk to Land Sea Air in Aruba. I shipped my truck from Miami to Aruba and it arrived with not even dust on it. Of course, the import tax is something to consider, sometimes as high as 40% of the value.
I have noticed a few licence plates from continental US. What happens after one finally gets approved for residancy. I retire in the next few years, and will be applying for residancy. I heard it is time consuming and of course cars are another part of the equation
that is right it is like this under $10000 is 30% from $10000- $20000 is 40% from $20000 up is 50% now you will have an idea and that is with the shipping include to value it wow that is high ha aruba one happy island
regarding the plate you will need one from here the one of usa is till you recieve the one from here
Thanks SanNic for the info on the car shipping. I talked to Jerry yesterday and he was really helpful. I have a call in to him with a question - whether we have to be physically there to accept delivery. If not, we'll have it come in the Wednesday before we get there (we get there on a Monday). Otherwise, we'll have to wait for it a couple of days. Linda
