Import

We are happy to do the import clearance for your horse from abroad. Veterinarian clearance, custom clearance and the organization to the home stable can be arranged through our office.

To do the import of your horse to Europe, we would need to know how your horse should get imported:

1
Temporary importation: if you are planning to stay not longer than one year in Europe, the following options would be sufficient for you:

 

ATA Carnet – no bond upon arrival in the EU or Payment of the bond and customs, 1 year valid, which can be refunded when the horse is being exported with a correct re-export customs document

 

2
Re-Importation: the original seller is taking back the horse into his books.

3
Moving good: to clear your horse as moving good, which is free from import customs/duty and taxes, it must be clearly documented, that your are moving homestead.

4
Permanent Importation: VAT 16 – 21 % (depends on each EU country) and duties 11,5% will be due for a final importation into the European Union. If you are planning to import a breeding mare or stallion which is registered in a studbook, you can avoid the import duties.
