As a major shipping hub serving the South Asian Pacific region and one of the main gateways for cargo into and out of mainland China, the Port of Hong Kong is one of the busiest ports in the world. Each year in excess of 400,000 vessels arrive and depart through the port bringing with them the equivalent of around 25 million 20' shipping containers.
There are three main government departments that handle the processes of importing and registering a car in Hong Kong. While our expert team of car shipping professionals will personally help you through this process, we are pleased to provide this basic step by step guide to summarize some of the basic requirements.
Step 1: Exhaust and Noise Emissions
The Environmental Protection Department requires you to prove that your vehicle complies with their emission standards. Proof of compliance can be in the form of documents issued by vehicle manufacturers or an emission testing report provided by an approved laboratory.
Step 2: Importation
Vehicles imported into Hong Kong, even if they are company cars, are not subject to any customs tax. However, the person importing a vehicle is required to submit a declaration to the Customs and Excise Department with accurate and complete information regarding the vehicle within 14 days of its arrival. You can do this yourself, or via a customs broker. An Import Return (Form #CED336) should also be submitted to customs within 30 days of importation.
Step 3: Vehicle Examination
After your vehicle arrives in Hong Kong you are required to take it to the Vehicle Examination Centre to be examined. You should also take an approval letter issued by the Environmental Protection Department to evidence that your car complies with the exhaust and noise emissions as noted above. The address for the Examination Centre can be found below:

Vehicles undergoing examination must comply with the following:
Step 4: Vehicle Registration and Licensing
In order to apply for first registration of your vehicle you should submit a completed application form (#TD22) to the Hong Kong Licensing Office of Transport including supporting documentation requested on the application form. Once your application has been received and verified you will have to pay your first registration tax, registration and license fee.
