Carnet de Passage – Small Group Tours

Carnet de Passage

The Carnet de Passages en Douane (CPD) is the international customs document, which covers the temporary admission of motor vehicles into foreign countries.

The CPD is required, in numerous countries around the world, for temporary admission of private automobiles, commercial vehicles or other categories of motor vehicles. It facilitates the temporary importation of motor vehicles by providing security for the payment of any customs duties and import taxes chargeable, should the vehicle not be re-exported.

The Automobile Association is the only institution in South Africa that is able to issue CPD.

Carnets issued for vehicles entering South Africa on a temporary basis are normally valid for one year. If the carnet holder wishes to keep the vehicle in SA for a further year, permission must be granted by the South African Revenue Service. This is arranged for you by the AA’s Head Office. The process is known as substitution.
