Taking company cars abroad

When travelling abroad, a car needs a number of documents in order to cross national boundaries. Here is a list of everything needed.

Trips within the EU

  • You need the technical section of the registration certificate whenever you travel outside Finnish borders. You can acquire a registration certificate from Trafi's online services through this link or from an inspection station. A person, who does not need to be the owner or holder of the vehicle, can have the technical section of the registration certificate printed by visiting an inspection station. The identity of the person will be checked, meaning that the person must carry their identity card.
  • If you travel from Finland to another EU state and you have been registered as the co-holder of your vehicle, you do not need any export licence. You can check the registered co-holder of your vehicle from the registration certificate or from Trafi.
  • If you have not been registered as the co-holder of your vehicle, you will need an export licence. You can apply for an export licence by completing an export licence application. We will collect a charge for an export licence according to our service price list.
  • In addition, you will need your employer's approval.
