To all ATA Carnet users traveling to Turkey, please be advised that Turkish Customs has implemented a new national rule that requires ATA Carnet holders and/or their authorized representatives to provide an Excel file stored on a memory key to Turkish Customs at the time of entry. This file is then uploaded into Turkey’s national Customs system.

This means that U.S. exporters to Qatar can begin sending their temporary import shipments to Qatar on ATA Carnet, the “passport for cargo” and the gold standard for temporary entries.

Great news for the US export community: India has made a policy shift around the use of ATA Carnets!

On January 18th, India began accepting ATA Carnets for the temporary import of professional equipment. Since 1990, India has only accepted ATA Carnets for goods being temporarily imported for approved trade shows, as well as fairs and exhibitions. India has expanded the scope of the ATA Carnet acceptance to include temporary importation of professional equipment, making it easier for businesses to access the Indian market.

ATA Carnet use is growing internationally and for good reason. More and more logistics service providers and shippers are coming to understand the benefits of the carnet. Temporary importation shipments carry unique risks and challenges. Foreign countries have their own documentation requirements to clear customs and related security requirements, and they often require these documents in their native languages and their local currencies.
