Can I import a vehicle to Michigan from a foreign country?
If the vehicle was manufactured for sale in the United States, you will need the proper ownership documents, a stamped U.S. Customs and Border Protection "Entry Summary" CPB 7501 form, proof of Michigan no-fault insurance, and identification to title and register the vehicle in Michigan.
If the vehicle was not manufactured for sale in the United States, you will then need the following compliance documents:
- A stamped U.S. Customs and Border Protection "Entry Summary" CPB 7501 form.
- U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) form HS 7 and either a statement of compliance or waiver from DOT.
- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) form 3520-1 and either a statement of compliance or waiver from EPA.
The Registered importer ensures the vehicle has proper ownership documents, meets all federal EPA emission standards and DOT safety standards, converts the odometer reading to miles, and ensures any custom duties are paid
