to get a car
Import your car

You are, then, allowed to use your car for one year with the European plate. This apply, of course, if you owned your car for more than six months from your arrival. On the contrary, you have to get a « Duty-free warehouses » from the Federal custom department. It lasts 2 years after that you have to pay custom duties, which are approximately 12% of the current value of the car.
