All Carnets require a security deposit equal to 40% of the value of the General List.

Road vehicles covered by a Carnet require 100% security for corporations or 150% if the Holder is an individual, and all vehicles visiting China require a minimum of 100% security deposit.




Certified checks and money orders made payable to USCIB (minimum $100).




Surety bonds may be obtained through our Service providers who are carnet bond specialists or from any of the 200 companies authorized by the U.S. Treasury Department, admitted in New York State, and have an A.M. Best rating of A- or better. Bond premiums are typically 1% of the bond amount (a minimum premium may apply).





In lieu of a cash deposit or bond, federal government agencies may remit an RCD of $250 per Carnet. Agencies must also complete the Application for Waiver of Security. Effective January 1, 2010, non-Federal Government Agencies are required to post a standard security deposit in the form of cash or a surety bond as explained above.

Cash deposits and RCDs are returned in full. Surety bonds are terminated once the original Carnets have been returned for cancellation and no claims are anticipated by Carnet HQ. While Carnets are good for up to one year, if a claim arises, it may be necessary to hold the security deposit until the claim is resolved.




Power of Attorney


If a customs broker, freight forwarder or agent is preparing the application on behalf of a Carnet holder, a Power of Attorney must accompany this application. Please contact your service provider for a Power of Attorney form.
