An ATA Carnet is an international customs document issued by 70 countries. It is presented when entering a Carnet country with merchandise or equipment that will be re-exported within 12 months.
The Carnet permits the equipment or merchandise to clear customs without the payment of duties and taxes upon presentation. Thus the use of a Carnet as a “passport for goods” is a way of temporarily importing into foreign countries without payment of duties and taxes.
Through Sarawak Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCI), members can apply for Carnets (which are solely issued by Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce And Industry (MICCI) in Malaysia, which is an affiliate of the International Chambers of Commerce (ICC) Paris). ATA Carnets can be used for hand-carried instruments and equipment as well as freight.
