When importing a boat on a trailer you must have an approved Vehicle Import Approval (VIA) for a small trailer before your boat or yacht arrives. The government website is rather confusing and can take several attempts to navigate your way through it. Taurus Logistics are very familiar in dealing with the Department of Infrastructure and can apply for a Vehicle Import Approval under the “Small Road Trailers Option” on your behalf.
We only require a small amount of information as below and our fee of AUD250.00 + GST which includes the fees charged by the Department of Infrastructure. Once we have applied for the Import Approval it will take 30 business days (as per Department of Infrastructure guide) to receive the approval.
