U.S. Customs export requirements
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) require notification of all self-propelled vehicles being permanently exported from the United States. You must provide CBP with your vehicle title documents, registration and sales receipts.
note: trailers are not self-propelled vehicles and therefore exempt from this requirement.
CBP regulations state that at land border points:
- required documentation must be submitted at least 72 business hours prior to export; and
- the vehicle must be presented to U.S. Customs at the time of export.
CBP recommends that you contact the customs office where you plan to cross, directly, to verify the documentation required and their hours of operation.
Select a state or province, then choose the border crossing through which you will be importing your vehicle, to view contact information for the U.S. Customs office.
