Carnet & Export Related Information












§         Airline Hotlines



For international travel, it is recommended that you arrive at the airport four (4 hours) before departure.  Remember that you must have your Carnet validated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) before leaving the U.S.  It is your responsibility to confirm customs office location and availability; see below.
