Sorry to revive an old thread, but is it correct that there are no export plates for bikes?
I have a BMW here in Abu Dhabi that I just imported, I had to clear customs through Dubai, so the VCC says Dubai on it. In order to register it in Abu Dhabi I would presumably have to transfer it from Dubai to AD first, at least that was the case with my car that I did a few months ago. I was planning on driving it back to AD on the export plates to get it registered. However, if it is not possible to get export plates, then that strategy will leave me stranded in Dubai...
Can anybody confirm that it is possible or not to transfer in the normal way? In fact, I thought export plates was a prerequisite to transfer a vehicle from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, as they must be turned in at the vehicle test station upon registration.
