Need help the Temporary Importation (Under a Carnet) to Australia
I am an Australian (previous living in UK) and am shipping my UK registerd vehicle into Brisbane, using my CDP Carnet. I want to handle the customs and clearance myself...
Right now going through the rigirous task of cleaning and preping the car for packing and therefore customs..
Upon clearance and required docs I have some questions...
I understand that I will need to book both a customs officer and quarantine officer for their approval and clearance.
Doing some reading and Third-Party compulsory insurance is required for all states in Australia and that I must do an "Authorised Unregistered vehicle inspection (AUVIS)" . This means it will remain a UK registered vehicle...
I have the V5 papers, Carnet and licenses etc BUT whilst on my journey the tax disc on my car expired. Thus I was advised to SORN the vehicle (and here is the catch, how can you get another tax disc when on the road internationally, when you need a MOT inspection done in the UK to get it)
So here is my question... With the documents above, will that be sufficient to aquire an Un-registered vehicle permit and third party insurance?
Has anyone had experience with this. Please help as my car is due to be shipping from Port Klang in the next few days
