Dear All,

Is the process of registering a car which comes from outside the EU (ie it is
a model not sold in the EU) on the French side easier than in the Metropole?

In Europe it is quite a struggle to register a US-imported car (one has to get emissions and noise tests, change the indicator lamps from red to orange, etc.)

I have a US-made Nissan Xterra (this model is not sold anywhere in Europe) which I will be bringing with me to SXM from Abu Dhabi, hence my concern... I would be grateful for any light you could shed on this issue.

Best regards,

Filip

Does anyone know if it is difficult register a car on French side if it is bought on the Dutch side?
Also noticed a lot of French side residents are driving with Dutch plates -any particular reason for that?

No custom fee, tax or whatever.... You will need the bill of lading, the tittle, the bill of sale.

Kind Regards,
Philippe

Hello there,

So a US-made car can enter the EU (French side) tax-free via Saint Martin? For the technique, if I bring in a car with red rear indicators like in the US, and without rear fog lights, can I pass the technique or do I need to do more inspections?

What about Dutch side, could I get a US car (being a UK citizen) into the Dutch side, tax-free, then into the Netherlands and if I return to the UK, could I bring the car back from "The Netherlands" to London?

Ivan

Hello ,
Is there any restriction on the age of a vehicle, or added taxes depending on the age of the car that is imported into St Maarten?

Thankyou for a prompt reply.



Ken

Thanks in advance
