Qatar has recently appointed a national guaranteeing association for ATA Carnets, taking a key step toward issuing and accepting ATA Carnets. The NGA is the Qatar Chamber. The remaining hurdle to Qatar becoming a fully-functional ATA Carnet country is implementation of the issuing and acceptance functions by Qatar customs.
Qatar would become the 6th Middle Eastern country to join the system including Bahrain, Lebanon, Iran, Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Bahrain was added as of June 1st, 2014. We will keep you updated as advances (or setbacks) occur.
