Merchandise passports speed shipment of your gear
Media representatives should know about the ATA Carnet export service from USCIB. Carnets are internationally recognized customs documents that speed delivery of professional equipment, as well as professional samples and goods for trade shows, to over 80 countries and customs territories, duty- and tax-free.
Mexico began accepting these “merchandise passports” last year, just in time for the global media onslaught that accompanies the G20 Summit. Goods brought into Mexico under Carnet and re-exported within one year are not subject to import duties or taxes.
Applying for a Carnet is easy, and Carnets are a simpler alternative to temporary import bonds or other products. More information is available at www.merchandisepassport.org. USCIB has a Mexico Carnet resources page to view click here.
So get informed, get a Carnet, get your gear, and get ready to cover the G20 Summit.
USCIB promotes open markets, competitiveness and innovation, sustainable development and corporate responsibility, supported by international engagement and prudent regulation. Its members include top U.S.-based global companies and professional services firms from every sector of our economy, with operations in every region of the world.
With a unique global network encompassing leading international business organizations, USCIB provides business views to policy makers and regulatory authorities worldwide, and works to facilitate international trade and investment. More at www.uscib.org.
