Re: import a newly bought 2nd hand car from Italy

From form 15.50 point 4.3

"If the vehicle has not been used abroad by the person concerned for a period of at least six
months, duty-free assessment as household effects is out of the question. However, the
migrant is authorised (form 15.30) to drive the vehicle which has not been put into free
circulation for two years from the date of first entry duty-free so long as the vehicle is
destined for private use in the customs area. The charge is CHF 25. Before the authorisation
expires, the vehicle must be definitively re-exported or put into free circulation (customs
clearance and payment of duties, cf. para. 3)"


Does it mean I have 2 years before I have to import the car?

Yes, but you also get Z-plates, with expensive insurance.

Don't some driver categories start off paying more than 100% insurance premium in some cases (the extreme being: male, younger than 24, foreign drivers license acquired within the last year, from ex-Yugoslavia)? Even more so with a car that costs +80k when new (may be classified as "Raserauto" by the insurance)?

If so, Z-plates could even be in OPs favor.

Z plates will carry twice the loading so will cost twice as much........
