Saudi Arabia Soon To Join ATA Carnet System

Taking one step closer to becoming a full member, in August Saudi Customs appointed the Council of Saudi Chambers as the national guaranteeing organization of the ATA Carnet system.  While there is no firm date, it is expected that Saudi customs will accept carnets in the first quarter of 2015.

ATA Carnets are “Merchandise Passports” allowing the temporary duty and tax free movement of goods into 73 countries.  The World ATA Carnet Council has been focused on increasing the number of countries in the Middle East to support regional commerce.  Bahrain recently joined the ATA Carnet System in June.
