China / Taiwan / Hong Kong
Save money on U.S. exports to China. Avoid paying costly customs duties and import taxes on merchandise and equipment sent temporarily to China, Hong Kong and Taiwan*. By using an ATA Carnet when promoting products or services to these destinations you can save time and money on your temporary exports. Virtually all types of goods can be listed on a carnet and they can travel to 83 countries and territories in addition to China and Taiwan. The carnet is valid for up to 12 months which gives you plenty of time to promote and demonstrate your product in the growing Asian marketplace. Temporary imports to China make sense using an ATA Carnet.
As of November 1, 2010 Macao is a member of the ATA Carnet system.
