Special Considerations

The Lebanese Customs Authorities allows jewelry under ATA Carnets with the following conditions:

  • The jewelry must be displayed in public exhibitions and NOT in private exhibitions or shops (as Lebanon is not yet a contracting party to the Convention for temporary importation of commercial samples).
  • The holder of the ATA Carnet must enclose with the Carnet color photos of the exhibits in order to facilitate their identification upon importation and especially upon re-exportation.
  • The holder of the ATA Carnet must indicate in the Carnet’s general list full and detailed description of the jewellery (weight, nature, shape, components, etc.).
  • The jewelry must be fully re-exported at the end of the exhibition.
