The New 25 Year Rule for Australia

We are glad to inform you that there were some beneficial for you changes made in Australia's car import law.  
Now you can import many of the most popular JDM models 
 
AUSTRALIA'S NEWLY INSTATED 25 YEAR OLD CAR IMPORT LAW.
The pre-1989 scheme is being substituted by the rolling 25 year rule.  
 
As of December 10, 2019 new import regulation have been put in place for vehicles that are at least 25 years old or older.
This means that cars that were manufactured before and during 1995 can now be imported with relatively easy process and low cost.
 
This now allows for a larger variety of cars makes and models to be brought into Australia without going through a painful and costly process of compliance. 
Here is the sample of most popular JDM cars which are now legal for Australian market
Nissan Skyline GT-R 33  ( BCN33 model)
Nissan Skyline GT-R 32 (BNR32 model)
Nissan Skyline 32 and 33 models ( turbo and non-turbo)

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
And many other
 
Popular 4WD models

Given that vehicles meet the new Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicle Schemes criteria ( 25 years old or older), cars that were previously ineligible to be imported, are now eligible.
