ATA Carnet

ATA Carnet

Delivered on Time and Seacon UK have their own dedicated in house ATA Carnet department based out of the London headquarters.

What is an ATA Carnet?

The ATA Carnet is an international customs document, which allows the temporary importation of commercial samples, professional equipment or goods going to either a trade fair or exhibition to countries that are part of the ATA Carnet system. Without an ATA Carnet it would be necessary to go through each country's customs procedures for the temporary admission of goods, i.e. lodging a temporary import bond.

The ATA Carnet simplifies the customs formalities by allowing a single document to be used for clearing goods through Customs in the countries that are part of the ATA Carnet system.  An ATA Carnet is valid for two months, six months or one year and allows for movement of the goods shown on the Carnet as many times as required during the given period to any of the destinations applied for.
