Individuals purchasing a POV from the Post Exchange or Defense Reutilization Management Office (DRMO)  will obtain duty free certification in the following manner:

  • (a) Individual or his agent will bring the sale document to the Area CCO.
  • (b) The CCO will review the ROK Import Customs Declaration. He will then sign, stamp, and seal the certification on each copy and on the purchase document.
  • (c) The individual or his agent will deliver these documents to the Korean Customs Service located in the district in which the vehicle was purchased (See appendix D).
  • (d) The individual will be issued an import permit by the Korean Customs Service (ROK), which will enable him to register the POV with his Area vehicle recorder. The individual will be instructed to take his POV to the nearest Customs House with the documents for a comparison of vehicle identification number (VIN) or serial number with purchase documents.
