Car shipping to Japan customs declaration
I’ve sent my car from Vancouver to Kobe, and from what I was told when arriving in Japan, I need to fill out the declaration form and declare that my car was shipped. #3 is important, and you’ll need to fill out 2 copies.
You will need to submit this just after the luggage pickup area when you are examined before the exit to the airport. They’ll ask you some questions about the contents, stamp it, and then take one copy. One you will need to keep for your own. This is apparently for TAX FREE reasons.
