The Carnet de Passage en Douane is an international customs document which covers the temporary admission of motor vehicles in foreign countries. This allows the traveller to temporarily import their vehicles without having to leave a cash deposit at the border with the customs officials.
The CPD facilitates the temporary importation of motor vehicles by providing security for the payment of any custom duties and import taxes chargeable should the vehicles not be re-exported from that country.
The CPD is still required in numerous countries around the world for the temporary admission of private automobiles, commercial vehicles and other categories of motor vehicles.
