Our Experience

Like in many other southern European countries, the secondhand car market in PORTUGAL, is very expensive and closed
Since Portuguese authorities tend to protect their local dealers, a very high taxation is applied to any imported vehicle.
Finding a Portuguese registered car in the UK is difficult, but not impossible, we are often offered LHD vehicles from British privates returning from PORTUGAL. This is why we advise our customers to import a UK registered Lhd car to PORTUGAL and register it there. You will find the necessary information below.
We have sold many cars to PORTUGAL, and organised hundred of deliveries there. We charge 700 GBP for ALGARVE and 600 GBP for PORTO& LISBOA. When purchasing a car through our sales and registration scheme you will be covered by the UK distant sales regulation act.

HOW TO REGISTER A CAR IN PORTUGAL

source:angloinfo
It is not obligatory to register a foreign vehicle for private use in Portugal for the first 180 days of a visit in any one calendar year, unless the owner intends to live permanently in Portugal.

However the following conditions must be met:
The vehicle is registered in the name of a person who is not a resident in Portugal
The vehicle is brought into Portugal and driven there by its registered owner or keeper
The vehicle is for private use only

Registering a Foreign Vehicle
Before registering a vehicle in Portugal on a permanent basis the owner must apply for a Residency Card (Cartao de Residencia) from the Portuguese immigration authorities, SEF (Servicos de Estrangeiros e Fronteiras).

An imported car or bike must conform to the Portuguese road standards under what is termed "homologation" (Homologacao) before it can be registered. The complexity of the process can vary according to age, make and origin of the vehicle.
The process is different for classic and collectable vehicles. It is also different and more complicated for modified vehicles which must be examined at an authorised inspection centre to ensure the work was carried out correctly and adheres to EU safety standards.
Information is available from the directorate general for traffic, the IMTT (Instituto da Mobilidade e dos Transportes Terrestres I.P.)


Two bodies manage road transport matters in Portugal:

The National Authority for Road Safety (Autoridade Nacional de Seguranca Rodoviaria, ANSR) is responsible for matters related to road safety and adherence to driving rules.
The Institute for Mobility and Land Transport (Instituto da Mobilidade e dos Transportes Terrestres, IMTT) is responsible for everything to do with drivers and vehicles.
Import duty Used vehicles: No import duty is due on a used vehicle imported for personal use, providing that tax has been paid in the EU country where it was bought, that it has belonged to the registered owner for at least six months and that the owner was resident in the previous EU country for at least 185 days (six months).
If the owner takes up residency in Portugal the car must be legally registered with the DGV within 12 months.

New vehicles: IVA (Value Added Tax) on a new vehicle bought in another EU member state must be paid in Portugal unless the Portuguese custom's authority (Direccao Geral de Alfandegas) is provided with the original purchase receipt stating that the VAT has been paid, and proof of a valid foreign registration of the vehicle.
Note: In the case of a new vehicle where taxes cannot be proved to have been paid (usually in the case of a new car imported for resale), registration in Portugal must be made within four working days of the entry of vehicle. Take the vehicle's original registration documents and original sale receipts to the local customs office (Alfândega Portuguesas).


Registering the vehicle


Registration is recorded at both the local customs office and the IMTT.
The Portuguese authorities may ask for documents other than those listed below. It's advisable to first check on forms and documents required.
The following documents are usually needed:
A fiscal certificate or tax clearance form issued by customs. In some instances, there are customs and tax charges payable (depending on the model, power, age and mileage of the vehicle) Original receipt of purchase showing taxes paid
A Certificate of Compliance (Form Model 9) issued by the IMTT confirming that the vehicle has undergone an inspection To download Form Model 9: Click here (in Portuguese)
A certificate of "homologation" (Homologacao) from the vehicle manufacturer or certified representative in Portugal to identify that the vehicle is of a recognised type in Portugal or the EU Copy of the foreign vehicle registration certificate
Certificate of conformity, COC (Certificado de Conformidade CEE)
A certificate of roadworthiness (IPO)
The technical inspection (Inspeccao Periodica Obrigatoria, IPO) is made at an IMTT approved garage. This checks vehicle identification, brakes, tyres, emissions, noise levels, lights, steering, windscreen and wipers, and chassis (inside and out) condition The following owner's documents are usually required:

Driver's licence (Cartao de Conducao)
Proof of identity (passport, identity card (Bilhete de Identidade))
Proof of residency (Cartao de Residencia), evidence of application for residency, or proof of residence (property title deeds, rental contract, utility bills, insurance certificate) Taxpayer's identification card (Cartao Fiscal de Impostos or Cartao de Contribuinte) and number plus three year's tax returns or a declaration from the tax office stating income earned (in Portugal or elsewhere) over the previous three years A certificate of cancellation of residence issued by the former country of residence or their Consulate in Portugal Note: Original documents and one copy must be supplied.
Once the application has been submitted, customs may issue a limited-validity authorisation (Guia de Circulacao) which means the vehicle may be used while the application is in process.


Registering a Vehicle from a Non-European Union Country


Take the vehicle's original registration documents and receipt of sale to the local Customs Office (Alfandega) where a fiscal certificate or tax clearance form will be issued. There are likely to be customs and tax charges payable, depending on the model, mileage, cylinder capacity, and age of the vehicle in question.

The IMTT (Instituto da Mobilidade e dos Transportes Terrestres) issues the certificate of compliance (Form Model 9). Apply to the IMTT for a Change in Licence Plate Application (customs will usually help with this process on the driver's behalf). This initiates the process of registration. A dossier is opened.

Complete a Declaracao de Circulacao and a form for additional information about the vehicle. The dossier will be sent to the IMTT notifie the owner by mail when to present the vehicle for examination at an IPO (Inspeccao Periodica Obrigatoria) test centre.
If the vehicle passes the IPO test, the IMTT issues a statement of approval. Take this and the other documents to Customs, who will issue a new vehicle registration number (matrícula).

The following documents are usually required:

- Proof of identity (passport, identity card)
- Proof of residence (property title deeds, rental contract, utility bill, insurance certificate)
- A copy of the foreign registration certificate
- Copy of the Certificate of Compliance (Form Model 9) (issued by the manufacturer or their local agent/dealer)
- A copy of the certificate of purchase and customs clearance certificate, issued by the customs office (Alfandega Portuguesas) IPO roadworthiness certificate
- The registration number and other documents are taken to the IRN (Instituto dos Registos e Notariado) for issue of the DUA. Following this, new number plates must be made and fitted.
