Exporting A Vehicle (International)

Before exporting a vehicle to another country or emirate, UAE vehicle registration must first be cancelled by the owner in person. If the vehicle has never been tested by the RTA, or if the registration has expired, the vehicle must be inspected prior to export to ensure that the chassis (body) number corresponds with the engine number.
