Import regulations for used cars from Japan to Poland

Import better condition cars from Japan for less money than buying from EU countries!

We at Japan Car Direct LLC have exported hundreds of vehicles to Poland over the years. Our exclusive agreement with Japan Car Direct Poland has ended and we are now working direct with individuals and business to import direct from Japan.

There are 2 ways to import to Poland. The first is direct to Gdynia/Gdansk and the other is through Bremerhaven in Germany. The majority of our customers find it easier and cheaper to import through Bremerhaven port. Ocean freight is cheaper and import can be completed cheaper than shipping direct to Polish ports.

Other Regulations:

Vehicles imported into Poland can not be sold, rented, lent or used by any person other than the registered owner for a year following the import.

Tax and Duty free import can be done by returning residents by submitting proof of ownership for at least 6 months to the customs office and the resident must have been outside of the EU for at least one year continuously.

Shipper must be present for customs clearance or fill out a notarized PoA (Power of Attorney) to handle the import when importing a used vehicle.

To Register:

The vehicle must be registered in the name of the current owner and the following documents are required:

  • Proof of ownership/confirmation of ownership transfer
  • Proof of registration if previously registered
  • Roadworthiness test certifications
  • Customs clearance certification
  • Cars classified as “other” must have a payment certification for the excise duty

Please check with Customs and the District Authority for the most up to date regulations, fees and procedures.

Cut out the middle man and work direct with JCD for the best service, vehicle information and competitive prices.

Sto lat!!
