Special Considerations

Carnets are typically limited to six months from the date of entry even though the Carnet may be valid for one year. Request from China customs an extension of the six months, or re-export the goods to a neighboring country and then re-enter China, as necessary.

All vehicles traveling to China on an ATA Carnet requires a minimum of 100% Security deposit.

For all hand carried goods, after presenting Carnets for customs validation at the airport, the holder/representative must visit a CCPIT/CCOIC office to complete the data registration process within three days of entry.
