What is an ATA Carnet?

An ATA Carnet is a Customs document that facilitates the temporary export of goods overseas and is valid for up to one year. Carnets are also called ‘Passports for Goods’.

ATA carnets can save businesses time and money by eliminating duties and taxes and by avoiding unexpected fees upon arrival in a foreign country.

In New Zealand, Carnets can only be obtained from our partner the Wellington Chamber of Commerce. For more information, please see the Chamber's website, or contact the trade team on 0508 CARNET (0508 227 638), or
