ATA Carnets to Brazil Made Easy

Monday, September 20, 2021

Grow your businesses in Brazil by using Carnets for your boomerang freight®.

Brazil is the 85th country/territory to join the ATA Carnet system and it is only the third Latin American member country after Chile and Mexico.  A vibrant and robust culture, Brazil is a highly desired location to conduct business with unbeatable off-hours splendors.  You can sample Brazilian churrascaria BBQ, stroll the famous beaches, take in breathtaking views from Mount Corcovado, and listen to authentic fado music at its soulful best.  Brazil’s exports range from soybeans and maize to petroleum oil, while main imports are parts & accessories for tractors and motor vehicles, electrical apparatus for line telephones, ships, other floating vessels, and electronic integrated circuits and micro-assemblies.  They remain strong in their commitment to the ATA Carnet despite advisories earlier this year.  Any potential risks on the ATA Carnet operation have been eliminated and Brazil is back in business!  The United States is among Brazil’s top trading partners.

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for temporarily exported merchandise, goods, or professional equipment and allows cross border movement of goods import-duty and -tax free into any of the 87+ carnet countries and territories for up to a year.  Also known as the Merchandise Passport, ATA Carnets are used by many industries in many applications.  The ATA Carnets’ benefits provide significant savings on import-duty and -taxes with built-in ease clearing Customs.  Brazil accepts ATA Carnets for professional equipment and exhibitions and fairs though a few special considerations are required.
