In all countries, new motor vehicles must be approved by a state authority. In certain countries or regions* where Tesla does not operate as a car dealer, the purchase of your Tesla is carried out via an out-of-state transaction. In this case, your Tesla will be made available for pick up in a delivery center in the country of order placement.
