ATA Carnet

What Is a Carnet?

A Carnet or ATA Carnet (pronounced kar-nay) is an international customs and export-import document. It is used to clear customs without paying duties and import taxes on merchandise that will be re-exported within 12 months.

‘ATA’ is an acronym of the French and English words ‘Admission Temporaire/Temporary Admission’. There are 16 chambers of commerce in Norway that issues ATA Carnet, and the Bergen Chamber of Commerce is one of these.

Do I Need a Carnet?

An ATA Carnet is never required but can be beneficial for temporary exports or boomerang freight℠. The advantages include cost savings, time savings and smooth foreign and U.S. customs clearance for commercial samples, professional equipment and trade show exhibits.

Where Can I Use a Carnet?

ATA Carnets are accepted in 71 countries and territories around the world. New countries are added to the ATA Carnet system every year.
