ATA Carnet

What is an ATA Carnet?

The ATA Carnet is an internationally recognized customs document permitting duty-free and tax-free exportation and importation of goods into countries and territories that have joined the ATA and Istanbul Conventions, for a period of up to one year.

On a Carnet, you can carry:

  • Commercial samples,
  • Professional equipment and
  • Goods for presentation or use at trade fairs, shows, exhibitions, or similar events.


Why ATA Carnet?

The purpose of the ATA Carnet system is to facilitate and simplify the temporary customs clearance procedure so that the ATA Carnet:

  • replace the export documents in the country of consignment,
  • replaces the necessary customs documents in the country of temporary exportation,
  • includes a globally accepted guarantee that covers potential customs duties and taxes on imported goods, and
  • also serves as a transit document for goods.


How do we act?

Carnets are issued by Chambers of Commerce in countries that have joined the agreement, which together form a guarantee ring for customs payments. The ATA Carnet is valid for one year.

The application must be submitted to the Chamber of Commerce no later than five days before the trip (Express Carnet three days). Based on the application, the Chamber of Commerce prepares the actual ATA Carnet.

The ATA Carnet redemption fee is determined by the total value of the goods and the number of destination countries. In addition, the applicant deposits a "deposit amount" with the Chamber of Commerce, which they get back when the Carnet is returned to the issuing Chamber of Commerce after the travel correctly utilized and filled out. If one is not a member of Chamber of Commerce, the ATA Carnet payments are twice higher than as a member would have.
