FIA Carnet for Motor Vehicles



The Carnet de Passages en Douane, or CPD (often called “a trip ticket” in the Middle East) is a customs facilitation document used to cover the temporary importation of road motor vehicles, whether it is driven or shipped to another country.

A CPD is a globally insured customs guarantee document confirming that customs duties and taxes will be paid in case the vehicle does not return to the country of registration. It means a CPD holder will not be required to pay customs guarantee deposit in the country where the vehicle is brought on a temporary importation basis.

If you don’t have a CPD, you will have to pay customs guarantee deposit in the foreign country and it takes weeks or months until such deposit is returned.

The authentic CPD (or “trip ticket”) can only be issued by members of the Alliance Internationale de Tourisme (AIT) and Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) in strict accordance with the terms of the United Nations Customs Convention of 1954 and 1956.

The AIT & FIA network has over 230 affiliated associations operating in 124 countries around the world. All CPD-issuing members are approved by the customs authorities of their countries and AIT/FIA CPDs guarantee uninterrupted border crossing.
