Car Shipping to China Customs

When shipping a car to China from UK ports, understanding what can and can’t be imported is crucial to avoid issues with customs, as well as all the correct documentation is provided. 

Vehicles Allowed for Import

  1. New Vehicles: Brand new cars can be imported without much hassle. These must meet China’s strict emissions and safety standards.
  2. Used Vehicles: Generally, China allows the import of used vehicles, but there are strict regulations. Vehicles must be less than 10 years old to be eligible for import.
  3. Electric and Hybrid Vehicles: These are increasingly encouraged due to environmental benefits and are typically subject to fewer restrictions and lower taxes.

Vehicles Restricted or Prohibited for Import

  1. Vehicles Older than 10 Years: China restricts the import of vehicles older than 10 years, making it nearly impossible to bring in classic or antique cars.
  2. Right-Hand Drive Vehicles: These are generally not permitted for import unless they are for special purposes (e.g. certain government or diplomatic uses).
  3. Vehicles with Non-Compliant Emissions: Cars that do not meet China’s emissions standards will not be allowed. This is strictly enforced to reduce pollution.
