Chile Import Regs.: Prohibitions

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 3:37 am

The importation of used vehicles into Chile is prohibited due to environmental reasons. Import of used or re-manufactured/re-built auto parts is not prohibited, but this type of import may be heavily questioned due to concern that the parts could be used to assemble used cars once in the country. Such investigations may hamper the import process. Exceptions include fire trucks, used ambulances cement-making vehicles, armored cars, mobile homes, street-and highway-cleaning vehicles, prison vans and other specialized vehicles.

Chile prohibited the importation of used motorcycles as of March 1999 through Article 21 of Law 18.483.
