  • Export the car out of Malaysia when employment in the country ends

Approval Permit

To import a car, an application must be made to the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) for an Approval Permit. This is an importing licence. The car to be imported must have been registered in the home country of the person applying. The following documents are needed to support a letter of application (Approval Permit) addressed to the Ministry:

 

  • A completed JK69 Customs Clearance form
  • A passport and Malaysian visa
  • A Malaysian or international driving licence
  • Proof of ownership of the car to be imported
  • The original and a photocopy of the vehicle registration documents
  • Insurance documents
  • A work permit for Malaysia and a letter from the applicant’s employer in the country

 

Certified translations must be provided of any documents which are not in either Malay or English. The application and documents need to be presented at either the main MITI office in Kuala Lumpur or at one of the branches in Sabah or Sarawak. A short interview is also conducted. Processing of the application and issuing of an Approved Permit, which is valid for three months, usually takes about seven days.

 

You need to meet the following conditions to qualify for an import license:

 

  • Residing overseas for a period of no less than one year.
  • Vehicle must be registered and insured in applicant’s name for no longer than nine months
  • You must have a valid driving license
  • Be returning to Malaysia permanently
  • Apply for the license 3 months from the date of return to Malaysia

Once the car arrives in Malaysia, the owner must collect it in person from the port of entry. The car is inspected by PUSKAPOM, the Malaysian vehicle inspection agency. They inspect vehicles on behalf of the Malaysian Customs Service. A bill of lading and an Approved Permit must be shown at the inspection.

 

The IVIC inspection is carried out at all entry points to Malaysia, including Port Klang and is carried out by a vehicle examiner who will examine your vehicle for:

 

  • Chassis number
  • Engine number
  • AP reference number
  • Make and model
  • Engine capacity
  • Body type
  • Fuel type
  • Odometer reading

 

You should prepare your vehicle for this inspection, ensuring each of these elements meets the required standard.

Import Duties

Once the car has been inspected, import duties must be paid. The duty depends on the purchase price of the vehicle, the date it was first registered, the model, engine size, and the date of import. The car is not released from customs until the duty has been paid.

 

For current information on the cost of importing a particular car, the Royal Malaysian Customs Department should be contacted directly.
