October 2019 - Reviewed for Accuracy

Brazil is the 85th country/territory to join the ATA Carnet system. It is only the third Latin American member country after Chile and Mexico. The National Guaranteeing Association is The Confederação Nacional da Indústria (CNI - National Confederation of Industry).

Brazil (ISO code is BR) 

Accepts ATA Carnets only for:

Professional Equipment

Exhibitions and Fairs

 

The security deposit amount required for U.S.-issued ATA Carnets destined for Brazil is 60% of the value. (Note: 100% or 150% bond requirement for road vehicles.)
 

All Customs offices in Brazil are entitled to handle ATA Carnets for the purposes of Customs clearance from Monday to Friday during opening hours (from 8:00am until 18:00pm).

A list of the Customs offices and their hours of operation is available at: Customs Offices.

USCIB highly recommends Carnet Holders to have a copy of the Brazilian Customs law 1639 (Portuguese version) enabling ATA Carnets when clearing customs in Brazil. Click here for the English version.
