Importing a car into Spain or Gibraltar

I would like to know which is the easiest option to import a car into Spain or Gibraltar.

I have a second home in Marbella, Spain and would like to import a car from Dubai to Spain.

I am not sure if it would be easier and cheaper to ship it to Gibraltar have it registered with GIB plates including insurance and drive it into Spain or not.

May be its better to ship directly into Malaga and pay the Spanish duties and taxes have have Spanish plates with Spanish insurance.

Can anybody assist and let me know.

Thank you.


To have a car on Gibraltar plates you have to be resident in Gibraltar

You would probably be better off selling your car in Dubai and purchasing another in Spain.

Does your car conform to European specifications?
