What Charges Might I Face?


Duties, Taxes and Penalties; Regularizaton Fees
A Carnet allows the temporary importation of merchandise without the deposit of taxes (e.g., value-added taxes, VAT) and duties or the purchase of an import bond.  With a customs claim for which there is no proof of re-exportation, duties, taxes and usually a penalty (10% of the duty and taxes) will become payable.
