  • ATA Carnets cut costs to exporters by eliminating value-added tax (VAT) and customs duties.
  • Carnet holders are not required to post securities with customs.
  • Carnets simplify customs border crossing and cut red tape by allowing importers and exporters to use a single document for all customs formalities.

Armed with their ATA Carnet, salesmen, exhibitors, and other business travellers can:

  • make advance customs arrangements at predetermined cost;
  • visit more than one country;
  • use their ATA Carnet for several trips during its one-year validity
  • return to their home country with their goods and without problems or delays.
