Car Import Duty in the Philippines

How much it will cost to import a car into the Philippines

For both new and used vehicles being imported:

  • Customs Duty: 40%
  • VAT: 10%
  • Ad Valorem Tax: 15% to 100% depending on Engine Displacement (Size)
  • Arrastre Fees (charged by private companies)
  • Wharfage (Storage) Fees to the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA)

Rates are based on a vehicle’s book value, not how much you paid for it.
