Goods that qualify for temporary importation are normally documented on Form E29B, Temporary Admission Permit. However, under certain conditions these goods may also be documented on a carnet.

Carnets are international customs documents designed to simplify and streamline customs temporary entry procedures. Carnets are particularly useful for goods that will be imported into more than one country during the period for which the carnet is valid.

A carnet replaces the national temporary entry documents, and it guarantees duties will be paid if the imported goods are not re-exported in the time period allowed by customs.

Omnitrans professionals can offer assistance to companies in navigating the complexities of a carnet, as well as suggestions that save time an money. Examples:

  • Application Process
