ATA Carnets

An 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. We are the only issuing body in South Australia.

ATA Carnets cover:

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

ATA Carnets do not cover perishable or consumable items or goods sent overseas for processing or repair. The ATA Carnet is administered by the World Customs Organisation and operates in 74 countries. 

An ATA Carnet can remove any difficulties you may have in preparing customs declarations in a foreign country and lodging and reclaiming cash deposits and bonds.
