ATA Carnets


A Carnet is an International Customs document that allows specific goods to be transported in and out of foreign partner countries without having to pay duties or taxes.

Carnets can be used for any number of visits in member countries. While carnets are often valid for one year some countries may stipulate a shorter time limit.
