You can't register a vehicle in Sri Lanka if it's older than 3 years.So if u intend to use it for daily running it will not possible.

This topic has been discussed before.

*IF* the blue permit scheme is still in effect, you can gift a personally used vehicle to an immediate family member in Sri Lanka. The vehicle can be as old as 10 years but older it is, higher the permit fee. IT MUST BE right hand driven.

Instructions are here: http://www.videshasewa.com/home/blue_permit.html (not sure when was the last update)

You can get all the forms from here: http://www.imexport.gov.lk/downloads.php?Sid=1&&Lid=1&&Did=4

To double check whether the permit scheme is still in effect , you should contact Import and Export Control department. Contact details are here: http://www.imexport.gov.lk/contactus.htm

In addition to this, I`m pretty sure that you have to prove foreign remittance to Sri Lanka, best way is in the form of an NRFC account. I was told that for a mid sized sedan (let say its worth 20k US dollars) it`s good to have about 2 million Rs credited to an NRFC account over a time period (lets say 1.5 years) and that it`s better if you have that amount available in the account by the time the Blue Permit application is logged.

These are approximate figures though, I was unable to find 100% accurate information. Please keep us posted on what you are able to gather.

Cheers.

I dont think there is any law in SL stating that u cannot register a vehicle which is older than 3 years
