ANTIQUE CAR REGULATIONS

Antique Car Regulations, U.S. citizens employed abroad or government employees returning on TDY or voluntary leave may import a foreign-made car free of duty provided they enter the United States for a short visit, claim nonresident status, and export the vehicle when they leave. Military and civilian employees of the U.S. government returning at the end of an assignment to extended duty outside U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) territory of the United States may include a conforming vehicle among their duty-free personal and household effects. The vehicle must have been purchased abroad and be in its owner’s possession prior to departure. Generally, extended duty is 140 days or more. Navy personnel serving aboard a U.S. naval vessel or a supporting naval vessel from its departure from the United States to its return after an intended overseas deployment of 120 days or more are entitled to the extended-duty exemption. Conforming vehicles imported under the duty-free exemption are dutiable if sold within one year of importation. Duty must be paid at the most convenient CBP office before the sale is completed.

Conforming vehicles so imported may remain in the United States indefinitely once a formal entry is made for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) purposes. Nonresidents may import a vehicle duty-free for personal use up to (1) one year if the vehicle is imported in conjunction with the owner’s arrival. Vehicles imported under this provision that do not conform to U.S. safety and emission standards must be exported within one year and may not be sold in the United States. There is no exemption or extension of the export requirements.

How to calculate customs duty in india on used items

In case a person knows the rate of duty for a particular item, it’s easy to calculate the duty that will be charged. However, for used items, the value is determined by allowing depreciation on a yearly basis.

DIPLOMAT STATUS

The following vehicles need not conform to emission or safety requirements but may NOT be sold in the United States and may require EPA and Department of Transportation (DOT) declarations:

Those imported by nonresidents for personal use not exceeding one year. The vehicle must be exported at the end of that year – there are no exceptions or extensions. Those belonging to members of foreign armed forces, foreign diplomatic personnel, or other individuals who come within the class of persons for whom free entry has been authorized by the Department of State in accordance with international law. Those temporarily imported for testing, demonstration, or competition, provided they are not licensed for use, or driven on public roads. These vehicles may be operated on public roads or highways provided the operations are an integral part of the test. Parties responsible for such vehicles must submit proper documents – forms EPA 3520-1 and DOT HS-7 – to CBP at the time entry is made. Also, applicable written approvals from these agencies must be obtained in advance and presented to CBP along with these forms. Remember, the cost to return vehicles that have been refused prior approval can be very high and must be borne by the vehicle
owner(s).
