How to bring your car to Estonia

Hello everybody,

If you exported your car to Estonia, 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 Estonia?

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

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

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

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!


We opted to get a car in France (part of the EU) to avoid issues and costs.  We shipped everything by container, so if we had taken our car we would have shipped it the same way.  This article might be helpful:
