marlin Posted September 26, 2012 Report Share Posted September 26, 2012 "ATA Carnet" = "the merchandise passport for your gear / international customs document" Headed over seas to document some important material? A big project means a big Bag, lots of bags. If you're doing this a lot, you might need a sherpa, and you might want to apply for "ATA Carnet" status. Its like a passport for your gear. Like anything, there are some trade offs that you should consider before jumping in. Limitations like a one year time limit, fees per value of goods, etc. But hey, on the flip side, one single document for your 'customs' experience might be nice. As well as a simplified and streamlined return into US customs doesn't sound bad either, or reducing costs by eliminating value-added taxes (VAT). You decide.
