Detailed about registering a temporarily imported car

For how long can a non-resident import a car into Ukraine?

The Customs Code of Ukraine allows the import of a car by a non-resident citizen into the territory of Ukraine for up to 1 year.

How does a non-resident cross the border in his own car?

FAQ

After registering a temporarily imported car, can I leave Ukraine?

Oh sure. You can both freely travel around Ukraine, and leave and enter Ukraine on this car. If you are stopped by a police officer, be sure to show your temporary registration card to avoid fines.

Can a temporarily imported car not registered abroad be registered in Ukraine?
No, a car not registered abroad is forbidden even to be temporarily imported into the customs territory of Ukraine.
Is it possible to register a temporarily imported car in Ukraine with a permanent residence permit?
In practice, it is immediately impossible - the Ministry of Internal Affairs equates the presence of a permanent residence permit with the residence of Ukraine, however, a foreigner can receive a certificate confirming, in particular, the tax residency of another country and then put the car on temporary registration.
Can a citizen of Ukraine who has left for permanent residence in another country temporarily import a car?
Resident citizens who are temporarily registered with a consular office of Ukraine abroad have the right to temporarily import into the customs territory of Ukraine under a written obligation to re-export, subject to a written declaration, one car for personal use for a period not exceeding 60 days within one calendar year (which can be both continuous and intermittent) without payment of customs duties. A car can be temporarily imported into the customs territory of Ukraine upon submission to the customs authority of documents confirming the citizen's ownership of such vehicles and their registration in the territory of the relevant country (technical passport).
