ATA Carnet Specifics

Tecro/ AIT Carnes are used between Taiwan and the United States.
Special Requirements for identical merchandise visiting ATA Carnet countries and Taiwan.

  • Two carnets must be issued, one an ATA Carnet and the other a Tecro/AIT.
  • The Carnet numbers must be printed on the green covers and cross-referenced.
  • When departing the U.S. both Carnets must be presented to CBP for validation in Box H of the green covers and the yellow exportation counterfoils. Either Carnet can be used for re-entry into the U.S.

Follow these proper steps to handle split/partial shipments with Taiwan Customs.

  1. All goods listed on a TECRO/AIT Carnet must be entered into Taiwan in its entirety.
