Car Registration in Austria

Hello,


I am looking to take my car bought in Switzerland 3 years ago to Austria (Innsbruck).


It's hard to find any information in English with regards to the registration requirement.


Anyone please help? I heard that I should first look for an importer but I have no network in Austria. Also, how much tax should I be expecting?


I have Audi A4 Avant 1.8 TFSI 2013 driven about 50,000km.


Thank you so much for those who can provide a good information!

Thank you for the good information! However, I would wait to get more feedback from people.


I am not a EU citizen and I would like to hear if anyone had any experience finding an importer etc. Thanks,

So what? Nationality has nothing to do with the process.

PS: Is this part of a household move/relocation? Than it should be mostly straightforward an easy, see the follwing official goverment information. https://www.help.gv.at/Portal.Node/h...te.180656.html
https://www.help.gv.at/Portal.Node/h...e.0631601.html

https://www.bmf.gv.at/zoll/uebersied...eugimport.html
https://english.bmf.gv.at/customs/Ta...ion-goods.html

The car will need Austrian license plates one month after it was imported.
If you have a Non EU-driving license it must be converted within 6 months into a Austrian one.
