HAZZLES in dubai

Of course, it is illegal to smuggle in vehicles with forged documents.
If a vehicle is 2006 model, the custom duty relating to 2006 model
itself should be levied. But what if the document says 2006 model
for a 1996 model. Will the customs agree to that actual model or
will they go for the documented model. Defenitely the documented
model will be of interest to the custom officials as it gives them
It is true that the used car/bike sellers in dubai get forged documents
for vehicles from japan itself. Even if a vehicle is 1996 model,
they manage to get document of 2000 model for the same vehicle with
same chasis & win number and they sell it to the customer showing
the paper of 2000 model. And if that vehicle is applied for export
documentation, the buyer gets the same year and details mentioned
on the export papers too. The year of manufacture can be found using
the vin number, the punch on the parts-like for bikes, the cables,
the disk, the inner moulding etc will have some punching on that
which can show the vehicle is older than what is mentioned in document.
Why is it so that the officials never agree to the reality when
someone proves that his document for the vehicle is wrong and his
vehicle is more older than what it shows in paper. If it is the
reverse way (though no will disclose it) the officials will be more
than happy to accept those words.
