Hi all, 

I've lived in mainland Spain for quite some time but recently moved to FV. I brought my Spanish car from the mainland with me and I need to register it at DGT but I need to get a DUA for import purposes. Does anyone know where I can obtain this form?

Hi I’ve just done this, you need to register your car with DGT ,pay duty on the car for Canarias,then show police that it’s registered in your name, I had massive problems trying to pay duty Corralejo to Rosario several times only eventually to get a call from Gran Canaria that I had to do it online ( impossible task with Covid) so eventually I went to my lawyer and got it sorted through them and paid the import tax that way , I’m still waiting for an appointment to register with police lol and I started the process 2 months ago lol , Olga Caballero in Corralejo is my lawyer and I’d recommend them highly, hope this helps.

Thanks but I've already sorted it. In order to register my Spanish car from the mainland here in the Canaries I just went to an agencia de aduanas and gave them copies of NIE, Certificado de empadronamiento permiso de circulación pasaporte and job done. 👍

Don’t forget IGIC tax , my vehicle was from mainland Spain and I still had to pay , it’s rare to get checked but you never know, your choice.

Hello,  we are   going to move from Mainland Spain to Fuertaventura hopefully later this year,  we had not heard about this tax. If this has to  be paid how much is it and does it depend on how much your car is worth. If you can give us any more info we would appreciate it ... many thanks.

Hi Lindi, it depends on the age of car and where it was registered ie uk or Spain, I bought a Spanish registered car in the uk and drove it to Plymouth,ferry to Santander then drove to Cadiz and another ferry to Lanzarote then another ferry to Corralejo, because the car was Spanish registered it was an easier way to get it registered out here in Fuerteventura, first you must have an empadron and NIE or residencia then you have to make an appointment ( phone or online ) with DGT to register here then pay import tax via Gran Canaria customs (IGIC) then register with the police at traffico , this is how I did it , if the vehicle is uk registered I believe it’s harder to do but is possible, I’d recommend a lawyer to do it for you or a gestor who specialise in the process ( look on the forums in Fuerteventura) it’s a battle but can be done, but with brexit and Covid everything is done online and can take days if not weeks to get appointments,hence it is easier to use a lawyer or  gestor , I’m not sure but you can drive a uk registered car for 6 months after brexit but don’t hold me to that it’s only what I’ve heard. Hope this helps. Ps the canaries have there own valuation book and depending on age , engine size and emissions, they charge 5%. 10% up 15% of value of vehicle (again don’t hold me to that ) if you check online you can find out precisely, good luck.

Hi Andy,   thank you for taking the time to answer my question... we have been Resident in Spain for 7 years and our Vehicle was almost new a pre registered Yeti maybe 8 years ago..... we will consider all the info you have given us and hope we can make the move eventually as smoothly as possible.

Looking froward to selling up here and moving to Fuertaventure!!

Many thanks again, keep safe... Linda.

Nice one, good luck with your move , you won’t regret it , I’ve owned out here for around 7 years but only made the permanent move in October 2020 and it’s a paradise.
