What is an ATA Carnet?

An ATA Carnet is an international customs document that permits the temporary importation of commercial samples, professional equipment or goods for an exhibition. An ATA Carnet is typically valid for one year and allows for movement of the goods shown on the Carnet as many times as required during this period to any of the destinations applied for. Further advice on the temporary admission of goods is available from Irish Revenue and from GOV.UK
