The ATA Carnet
The ATA Carnet is an international customs document that permits the duty-free and tax-free temporary export and import of goods for up to one year. ATA Carnets cover:
- Commercial samples
- Professional equipment
- Goods for presentation or use at trade fairs, shows, exhibitions and the like.
The ICC WCF World ATA Carnet Council (WATAC) is the body within ICC WCF that manages the International ATA Carnet Guarantee Chain, which comprises the organizations appointed by their Customs to operate the ATA System around the world.
The ATA Carnet is in force in 74 countries today.
How an ATA Carnet works?
The ATA Carnet is composed of a front and back covers and includes two sheets for presentation at each foreign country you are visiting and two sheets for presentation to customs when leaving and returning to your home country. You give one sheet to the foreign customs officials when you enter their country and the other when you leave it. The same applies when exiting and entering your own country.
How can ATA Carnets help you?
Armed with your ATA Carnet, you can:
- make advance customs arrangements at a predetermined cost
- visit several countries
- use your ATA Carnet for several trips during its one-year validity
- return to your home country with your goods without problems or delays
