  • The vehicle purchased must be in accordance with the Saudi specifications and standards, as well as to be conforming to the fuel economy standard.
  • Customs duties will be imposed at the rate of 5% of the value of the vehicle when bringing the car into Saudi Arabia after its purchase.
  • A value-added tax of 15% will also be calculated on the total value of the vehicle, along with the customs duties.
