ABSTRACT

ATA Carnet   [open pdf - 30KB]

"The ATA Carnet is an international Customs document that a traveler may use temporarily to import certain goods into a country without having to engage in the Customs formalities usually required for the importation of goods, and without having to pay duty or value-added taxes on the goods. The United States allows for the temporary importation of commercial samples, professional equipment and certain advertising materials by a nonresident individual. Carnets are a security that participating countries accept as a guarantee against the payment of Customs duties that may become due on goods temporarily imported under a carnet and not exported as required. 'ATA' stands for the combined French and English words 'Admission Temporaire-Temporary Admission.'"
