All the prices on this are excluding Duty.. I am not sure that the duty will be for this vehicle.

Default Is it possible to bring back Car from Singapore

I might be accepting an expat contract for 2 years from my employer to go to Singapore. I am considering renting a Car in Singapore (I have two kids and not sure if I can live of without having a Car). Then I heard that currently the cost of owning your Car in Singapore has come down a lot and so is it a option to buy a Car and then later (2 or more years) bring it back to India. Does it make any sense????

DD it's better to use the Public transport here in Singapore instead of owning Car.

If at all you want to hire a car it will be somewhere around S$1000/mnth for a Corolla and extra any charges for the damages done.

In Singapore you need to pay ERP for usage of some roads in the peak time.

The ownership cost of the vehicle it is 2-3times more than India, for Eg-Swift in India - 5 -6Lakhs / Singapore - S$40,000(Approx - Rs.14Lakhs)

its not a good idea to bring a car back from singapore, they are more expensive in singapore than in india and you pay 110% import duty on the car!

Do not worry about not having a car in Singapore. The public transport is very efficient, clean and safe. You also have a hell lot of taxi's plying and they are also cost effective for the service they provide.

You will never face an issue.

And, as Gowda said, the cost of owning car is just too much and the cost of running it even more! :(

(PS: there is no free parking available anywhere in Singapore! Even not in your own apartment parking! )

I would like to second happy wheels on that, you wont even think about owning a car in Singapore, the city is so well networked and connected, and moreover costwise it will be much cheaper for you to save those sing dollars/USD's and use them to buy a car here in India.

If you are going to live in Singapore for 10 years or so, then it makes sense to own a car. Otherwise public transport is a way to go. In fact to prove that you can own a car, you need to first find proof that you have parking space.

Parm i think there is a percentage of exemption on duty if the car is shown as a Own car used for a certain period and being imported into India after using it in Abroad.

P.S - Correct me if i am wrong, i heard this from a friend.

Thanks HappyWheels. I hear what you are saying and it matches with what I read elsewhere..........but people do have cars in Singapore, don't they?

I wonder what reasons they have for owning cars, despite all the costs?

Simple; because they can afford it and it works out for them.

duty on USED car is 110% and minimum ownership should be atleast 6 months registered in the owner's name only.

110% import duty applied on TR (transfer of residence) of indian national returning to india after living for a considerable time (im not sure of the time period).
