Duty & Tax Free Customs Clearance for International Exhibitions, Auctions, Shows and Tours

The ATA Carnet export document allows for duty, tax and hassle-free temporary importation of fine, rare and high-value art and antiques into 87 foreign countries and territories. While many countries allow these items to enter duty-free there can be import taxes, such as VAT or GST, that can be avoided using the ATA Carnet export document.

Our expertise in temporary exports includes such high value goods as rare musical instruments, jewelry and watches, royal cultural treasures, yachts, fine art and classic autos; in addition to antiques, rare coins, stamps and collectibles.

Our Carnet Specialists are knowledgeable.
