...also known as "Importing a car to Dubai from Oman".
The Facts: I have seen a car for sale in Oman (Muscat) that I would like.
What I think is the process: Car has to be de-registered in Oman and I need to get Export plates. Transport it to Dubai and pay 5% Import Fees and various other charges that they will slap me in the face with. Register it in my name in Dubai.
The Potential Problems: The car may have some mechanical/electrical gremlins so I do not want to risk driving it back and although I think I intellectually understand the process involved I really don't know WTF I am talking about.
Anyone have experience of this?
Know of any companies that take care of this nonsense/have a flatbed truck/enjoy day trips to Muscat?
Any other suggestions?
