Importing A Car For Gift Permit

Nalin Sathsara


Dear friends,

Can anybody let me know Gift permit (or any other permit) is still available for Sri Lankan citizens who are working abroad?

According to government's website these permits are suspended since December 2011(http://www.imexport....-events〈=en). But I have no idea whether they again started issuing these permits or not.

I have been working abroad for more than 2 and half years now and I have sent money (more than 20,000 USD) to Sri Lanka. I have evidence (NRFC account details) to prove my remittance to Sri Lanka. Is there anyway I can import a car older than 2 years?

Thanks in advance!

I've got a simlar question to that of the OP.

A friend of mine has owned a brand new car (YOM 2007) for the last 4+ years, in the UK. What are the options of sending/brining it to Sri Lanka?

Sadly, since the gift permits are halted - that option is out.

And since only used cars within 1 (2?) year from YOM can be imported, is there no way to bring in this car?

If my friend does return to Sri Lanka, is it possible for him to bring the car for personal use? What sort of proceedure is involved?

Any help is highly appreciated. Thank you.
