Importing A Vehicle To Malaysia

Unfortunately this is going to be a hassle. It is perhaps the best idea to just put your car into storage or in the care of a friend while you are in Malaysia. However if you really have to bring your car the following will be helpful.

The imposition of very high import duties make owning a non Malaysian made car somewhat expensive. Import duties run to as high as 300%. Consequently the vast majority of cars in Malaysia are locally produced ones. Cost of maintenance and parts for foreign cars are also factors to be considered. Needless to say if your car is rare or indeed not available in Malaysia these factors become paramount.

Shipping charges, documentation and bureaucracy may also cause you problems, although hiring a shipping agent will alleviate most of the stress involved, charges will of course be imposed.

To import your car, you must apply for an Approval Permit (AP) from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI).

In order to apply for this permit your car must be registered under your name for at least 3 years. The following documentation must then be presented and processed:

1. A letter of application addressed to the Ministry Of International Trade and Industry (MITI) for the importing of a car from your home country to Malaysia for personal use.
2. A JK69 form must be purchased MITI and duly completed.
3. Documentation indicating proof of ownership. Typically this will be a purchase receipt or transfer of ownership/letter from the previous owner if the car was purchased second-hand.
4. The original and photocopied registration.
5. The cars original insurance documents and/or a letter from the insurance company.
6. Your work permit and letter of contract from your employer in Malaysia.
7. A photocopy of your passport.

All these documents must be presented to the officer in charge at the MITI offices, who will also conduct a short interview. Processing of your application typically takes seven working days, if all goes well you will be issued an Approval Permit allowing you to import your car. The permit is valid for only 3 months, if you do not import your car by then, you will have to go through the entire process all over again.

Upon the arrival of your car, you are required to collect it yourself from the port and then you will need to apply for a permit from the Malaysian Road Transport Department or "Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan", this entails more registration paperwork which of course will include your proof of ownership and registration documents, a car inspection and the payment of the import duties.

Purchase price of the vehicle can be taken into account in the calculation of the Customs Value and this is only an estimation of the calculations of Customs Duties. However, Royal Malaysian Customs has docket price of the particular vehicle to determine the calculation of the exact Customs Value. The calculation of Customs Duties also depends on the original registration date (birth date), engine capacity, date of import and model of the vehicle.



Simple Question & Answer

Question:
I work / study at overseas and already purchased a car and intended to bring the car into Malaysia. Can I know the procedure?

Answer:
Malaysia citizen who work or study at overseas can import a vehicle for personal use subject to the approval permit given by Ministry of International Trade and Industry. To get the approval applicant have to purchase and fill the JK69 Form. JK69 is a gazetted Custom Form. The form comes with three carbonised copies. Therefore, it cannot be downloaded from the website. Once endorsed by MITI, the form becomes an Approved Permit (AP). JK69 can be purchased at:

Percetakan Nasional Malaysia Berhad
Jalan Chan Sow Lin
50554 Kuala Lumpur
Tel : 03-92212022
Fax : 03-92220690

Person that is eligible to bring in personal vehicle are as follows:
i. Malaysians studying overseas (at least diploma level) for more than a year and returning home permanently. Accompanying spouse is not eligible.
ii. Malaysians working legally on a permanent post overseas (at least a year) and returning home permanently. Accompanying spouse is not eligible.
iii. Government officials posted overseas for more than a year. Accompanying spouse is eligible for one AP.

(For more information on (i), (ii) and (iii), please go to APPLICATION PROCEDURE AND WORK PROCESS. Refer to DOCUMENT 11: Guidelines to Apply for Import License For Personal Motor Vehicles Of Malaysian Citizens Working Or Studying Overseas)

iv. Expatriates with valid working pass/permit. The importation of the personal vehicle is subject to re-export condition upon termination of work employment in Malaysia.
v. Participants of Malaysia My Second Home Programme (MM2H). (For detail, please go to http://mm2h.motour.gov.my)
vi. Malaysians specialists returning home under the Ministry of Human Resource program. (For detail, please go to Laman Web Rasmi Kementerian Sumber Manusia - Home)


A complete application has to be submitted manually to any of the following offices:

i. Trade Services Division
Ministry of International Trade and Industry
2nd Floor, Block 10 Government Offices Complex
50622 Jalan Duta
Kuala Lumpur
Tel : 603-62034819
Fax: 603-62013012

ii. MITI Cawangan Sabah
Tingkat 3, blok D&E
Bangunan KWSP
49,Jalan Karamunsing
88622 Kota Kinabalu
Sabah
Tel: 088-239061
Fax : 088-235645

iii. MITI Cawangan Sarawak
Tingkat 3, Bangunan Bank Negara
93400 Kuching Sarawak
Tel : 082-257164
Fax : 082-417835

After getting the permit (AP), the vehicle can be imported into Malaysia and must be declared to the Royal Malaysian Customs at the customs station/ office at the place of import using the Customs Form No. 1 which can be obtained or purchased at:

Percetakan Nasional Malaysia Berhad
Jalan Chan Sow Lin
50554 Kuala Lumpur
Tel : 03-92212022
Fax : 03-92220690

The form comes with four carbonised copies. Therefore, it cannot be downloaded from the website.


Ordinary people did not know that every Malaysian citizen is entitled to one AP in a lifetime. Link to news via MalaysiaKini.Com: Rafidah directed to address AP issue in Parliament

I have posted this in Zerotohundred.Com also. Please add if anyone have additional information.

Outdated info...

latest revision as I know of... (posting 3rd time.....)
user posted image

the max they can charge u now is 165%....... all vehicle types....

sakuraguy,... you r in Japan?...want to bring a car back?...

Stating this the 4th time..

Apply AP from MITI no charge .. except a few ringgit for Form..
No difference if you r a student/profesional..
Live in the country for more than 1 year... own the car for more than 9 months.

10% devalued every for year.... less than 6 years
70% off evaluated value for a 6 year old car..
10% devalued every year after 6 years

Japanese made car get 25% off the initial value too....... then you times the value of the car with engine capacity in the table above... that would be the tax that you need to pay...

165% x [above 3L car.. value (depreciate as stated in my previous post)]... 6 years old car and above has the highest tax cut

not sure of the Euro made cars... but Japanese made cars (or brand) have 25% off the initial value of car before depreciation calculation..

there is also appeal where you can get few k RM discount...

Even you get the car for free.. you still need to pay tax based on evaluation and currency of country of origin.

Usually the tax imposed (for 8 years old or more) on car is less than the market value of the car... A RM24.5k car ... would probably be at around RM40k total (tax and cost)

Let say; Mazda 6 2.0L or BMW 320i both at the same price range/same yr.. happy.gif

1) 10% devalued every for year.... less than 6 years
2) 70% off evaluated value for a 6 year old car..
3) 10% devalued every year after 6 years

so then,i get a 5yr old model / 7 yr
10% de-valuated = 50% / 70%
24500 x 50% = 12250 / 24500 x 70% = 17150
12250 +(12250 * 165%) = 32462 / 7350 + 165%tax= 19477.5

if this;pretty acceptable..i think so.. wink.gif
if got one for free;lucky enuf la..pay tax oni..LOL

That is not how you calculate... by your methods a 9/10 year old car would be tax free... but it is not...
it is a year by year depreciation... (with the exception of the 6th year) and the value will not reach zero for a infinate number of years...

and It is the retail value of the car brand new...not the price at which you purchased 2nd hand that is used to calculate..Surely the retail price of a mid/high end, 2L BMW cost more than RM24500 brand new.

year and the value of the car remaining .... to be times with 120% for 2L, 165% (for car larger than 3L).

1 st year.. 90%
2nd year.. 81%
3rd year .. 72.9%
4th year .. 65.61%
5th year .. 59.049%
6th year .. 30%
7th year .. 27%
8th year .. 24.3%
9th year .. 21.87%
10th year .. 19.683%
... and so on


You see the huge gap between 5th and 6th years....

A 6 year old car 2L car ...30%value of car x 120%= 36% price of the initial retail price of the car, would be the tax to be paid.

say a car at RM 90k initially after 6 years will still need to pay RM32.4k in taxes
