How to bring your car to Argentina

Hello everybody,

If you exported your car to Argentina, were there any formalities that needed to be completed beforehand? What were they?

What is the best way to export your car? Is there a limit on the number of vehicles, or perhaps the age of the vehicle? Are there limits on emissions or emission controls in Argentina?

What are the expected costs of exporting a car? In your opinion, is it worth it?

Once you arrived in Argentina, what were the applicable taxes? What was the customs process like?

How do you go about registering an imported car in Argentina?

Is it best to buy a car once you have arrived or to bring your car with you, in your opinion?

We look forward to hearing from you!


I would not suggest doing it. Customs is very bureaucratic and even if you manage to import it the chances are that you will not be able to find parts for your car.
Most cars in Argentina are either made locally or in Brazil.
