What Are ATA Carnets?

ATA Carnets are international customs documents that provide duty-free and tax-free customs clearance for your temporary exports. ATA Carnets contain a set of unified customs declaration forms that can be used at each border crossing along your shipping route. ATA carnets are only applicable to non-perishable goods and valid for up to one year.

Given the wide acceptance of ATA Carnets around the world, carnets are your most effective replacement to individual security deposits, duties and taxes paid to customs officials. Some of the goods frequently shipped with ATA Carnets include commercial samples, goods for use at trade shows and international events, and professional equipment.
