United States Import / Export from Japan

USA Import / Export Information

The Import / Export FAQ Page should have useful information that will help purchasers looking to import a used Japanese Vehicle from Japan to the US.

Whilst researched and written from a UK perspective, hopefully the import / export information will be useful to anyone in the United States beginning to look into importing a Japanese car.

Clearly, US rules and regulations regarding Japanese Vehicle Imports will clearly be vastly different from those that apply in the UK, and USA buyers should read our disclaimer.
