Russia - Vehicle temporary import

Hi,

I'm trygin to clarify if it is essential that the owner of a vehicle you intend to travel with in Russia (i.e. temporarily import) travels along with it.

In other words, if I buy a car in Scandinavia and have the previous owner register it under his name, can I then drive it into Russia (Murmansk-Talinn is the idea) without any hassle?

If you've done it before, I'd love to hear your experiences. Also, if you know places/people I should ask this to, please forward the info!

Thanks a lot! Seb

I have only taken vehicles in/out of Russia that are registered in my name in UK. But I understand you can take a vehicle in that is not registered in the name of one of the travellers with it, provided you carry a letter of authority from the registered owner. Others on HUBB have done it without difficulty.

Although not required, I would suggest a photocopy of their Passport details page to add to authencity of the name and signature as well as having the letter translated into Russian.

You will need the original Registration Document whether in your name or not.

Don't forget to buy insurance at the border and have an International Driving Permit to complement your regular Licence.
