New vehicles of all types not yet registered abroad are allowed to be imported in Thailand without applying for an import permit from the Ministry of Commerce. However, used vehicles need to obtain an import permit from the Foreign Trade Department of the Ministry of Commerce. For the new or used vehicles with the weight less than 3500 Kgs., the importer needs to obtain an import permit from the Industrial Standard Institute.
An importer is eligible to import only ONE used vehicles for personal use.
In case where the importer is a non-resident, he/she is required to stay in Thailand for at least ONE year and present a non-immigrant visa issued by the Immigration Bureau, the National Police Office together with a work permit issued by the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare at the time of importation. If you are on a tourist visa or retirement visa you cannot import a car.
