Default Importing A Vehicle To Malaysia

Importing A Vehicle To Malaysia

Unfortunately this is going to be a hassle. It is perhaps the best idea to just put your car into storage or in the care of a friend while you are in Malaysia. However if you really have to bring your car the following will be helpful.

The imposition of very high import duties make owning a non Malaysian made car somewhat expensive. Import duties run to as high as 300%. Consequently the vast majority of cars in Malaysia are locally produced ones. Cost of maintenance and parts for foreign cars are also factors to be considered. Needless to say if your car is rare or indeed not available in Malaysia these factors become paramount.

Shipping charges, documentation and bureaucracy may also cause you problems, although hiring a shipping agent will alleviate most of the stress involved, charges will of course be imposed.

To import your car, you must apply for an Approval Permit (AP) from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI).

In order to apply for this permit your car must be registered under your name for at least 3 years. The following documentation must then be presented and processed:

1. A letter of application addressed to the Ministry Of International Trade and Industry (MITI) for the importing of a car from your home country to Malaysia for personal use.
2. A JK69 form must be purchased MITI and duly completed.
3. Documentation indicating proof of ownership. Typically this will be a purchase receipt or transfer of ownership/letter from the previous owner if the car was purchased second-hand.
4. The original and photocopied registration.
5. The cars original insurance documents and/or a letter from the insurance company.
6. Your work permit and letter of contract from your employer in Malaysia.
7. A photocopy of your passport.

All these documents must be presented to the officer in charge at the MITI offices, who will also conduct a short interview. Processing of your application typically takes seven working days, if all goes well you will be issued an Approval Permit allowing you to import your car. The permit is valid for only 3 months, if you do not import your car by then, you will have to go through the entire process all over again.

Upon the arrival of your car, you are required to collect it yourself from the port and then you will need to apply for a permit from the Malaysian Road Transport Department or "Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan", this entails more registration paperwork which of course will include your proof of ownership and registration documents, a car inspection and the payment of the import duties.

Purchase price of the vehicle can be taken into account in the calculation of the Customs Value and this is only an estimation of the calculations of Customs Duties. However, Royal Malaysian Customs has docket price of the particular vehicle to determine the calculation of the exact Customs Value. The calculation of Customs Duties also depends on the original registration date (birth date), engine capacity, date of import and model of the vehicle.

Ordinary people did not know that every Malaysian citizen is entitled to one AP in a lifetime. Link to news via MalaysiaKini.Com: Rafidah directed to address AP issue in Parliament

Corrections:
1. Malaysians expatriates are allowed to bring back 2 cars (one for him/her, the other for the spouse), hence, 2 APs. see guideline under item 2.1 ii.

The above are based on actual case by one Malaysian expatriate who went home permanently recently.

2. Not all Malaysian expatriates can bring back cars. Please see the list of field of expertise appendix, different conditions for expertise (period of employment - min 2 years) and qualifications, and only the professionals with these expertise only can bring back cars.
3. some expatriates can bring back cars without having to serve minimum years for example, those who work as medical officer or dental officer (not specialist). for those in maritime industries, no min years of service required.

Additions:
1. For expats working in countries with vehicles on left-hand drive, upon returning home, they can buy right-hand drive vehicles from the 3rd countries (see items 5.10 ii-vi).
2. Expats can also buy locally manufactured/assembled cars in Malaysia exempted from excise duty and sales tax.

I dont think it's only one AP in a lifetime.

When the Malaysian goes home, he cannot sell the cars within 2 years. After 2 years he can sell the car, let's say, after 5 years, he decided to work in overseas again and he did. after serving for let's say, 5 years, he's entitle to new AP, right?

Can you confirm it's only one AP in a lifetime. Can you give me the source?

Hi, I', a fan of the site for many years. I'm based in Ireland in west Europe and I export cars and trucks to the middle east. I'm going to S.E.Asia this summer and am just wondering what the situation is for those importing trucks to Malaysia?

Default Re: Importing A Vehicle To Malaysia

This is what I got in an email. The guy said it's just a guide and cannot be verified....(Also in Bahasa Malaysia)


Langkah 1: Nilai kastam kereta
Rujuk nilai kastam kereta tersebut di senarai harga CIF Jabatan Kastam
di halaman berikut:
http://media.paultan.org/pricelist.pdf

Contoh: 2003 Fiat Panda 1242cc RM31,647

Langkah 2: Harga FOB (free on board)
Harga FOB
= Harga CIF - 15% (keuntungan peralih) x % susut nilai mengikut umur

% susutnilai menurut jadual berikut:

1 st year.. 90%
2nd year.. 81%
3rd year .. 72.9%
4th year .. 65.61%
5th year .. 59.049%
6th year .. 30%
7th year .. 27%
8th year .. 24.3%
9th year .. 21.87%
10th year .. 19.683%

11 .. 0.177

12.. 0.159

13.. 0.143

14 .. 0.129

15 ..0.116

Contoh: 2003 Fiat Panda
= RM31,647 - 15% x 0.3 (iaitu 30%)
= RM8069.99

Langkah 3: Harga CIF
Dapatkan harga CIF (cost, insurance, freight) kereta tersebut

Harga CIF= Harga FOB + Insurans + Tambang kapal

Insurans= 1.5% dari FOB
Tambang (tetap menurut kadar kastam, BUKAN yang anda bayar ke agen):
Japan/Korea: RM 1200
Europe/UK: RM 1700
S. Africa: RM 1400
NZ/Australia: RM 1200

Contoh: 2003 Fiat Panda

Harga CIF = RM8069.99 + (1.5% x RM8069.99) + RM1700
= RM9891.04

Langkah 4: Jumlah cukai

Jumlah cukai = Harga CIF x kadar Efektif cukai kastam (menurut kapasiti enjin)

Capacity Sales Tax (%) Import Duty (%) Excise Duty (%) Effective tax (%)
< 1800 10 30 75 150.25
≥ 1800- <2000 10 30 80 157.40
≥ 2000- <2500 10 30 90 171.70
≥ 2500 10 30 105 193.15

Contoh: 2003 Fiat Panda 1242cc

Jumlah cukai = RM9891.04 x 1.5025 = RM14,861.29

Langkah 5: Rayuan/diskaun individu

Jumlah akhir cukai berdasarkan budi bicara pegawai kastam. Seharusnya buat rayuan bersungguh-sungguh untuk mendapat diskaun individu sehingga 30% dari jumlah cukai.
