Hi, we’ve just crossed Armenian border from Georgia and paid approx. 9500 drams for import tax and 10000 drams for 10 day insurance.

Hey guys,

Crossposting this from the other thread.

You can organise insurance beforehand via the following website, which aggregates all the Armenian insurance companies:


It avoids all the touts at the border and the potential for being ripped off (3,000 dram (5.50€?) for 14 days insurance for my motorcycle - third party).

That said, I can't 100%verify if it's legitimate, but they send insurance documents through, in Armenian, to your email address.

Also, I didn't have to pay any import tax. I went to the customs counter as directed by the customs agent, the guy asked me the value of my motorcycle ($800 usd~) then printed off the declaration and sent me on my way.

I suspect the import duties are dependent on vehicle value? There's zero verification, though - they don't look at the vehicle at all.

Hey Team

Any recent updates about the quality of Sotk Pass? Hoping to drive it in early November but getting mixed reports on whether this will be possible

on the website of Armenian Customs they write:

"Foreign individuals are entitled to temporarily import to the customs territory of the Customs Union personal vehicles registered in the territory of foreign states for the period of duration of their temporary stay on the given territory which should not exceed one year, being relieved of payment of customs fees."

seems like should be no tax there...
