Import Custom Regulations in Sweden

All imported vehicles are subject to a thorough structural and mechanical inspection before being allowed to operate on the Sweden road network. If any damage, deterioration or sub – standard repairs to the structural areas of the vehicle are detected by the Swedish Vehicle Registration Authority, the vehicle will need to be restored to a road worthy condition. All vehicles are required to meet a series of mandatory vehicle standards rules designed to ensure the safety of the Sweden motor vehicle fleet. Since the checks to verify compliance with safety and structural integrity are conducted after a vehicle has been delivered from customs control, it would be foresight to contact the Swedish Vehicle Registration Authority before making arrangements to import a car to Sweden.
