Iran Carnet de Passage at the Iranian border

How the Carnet de Passage Works :

The Carnet de Passages en Douane (CPD) is a customs document that identifies a driver’s motor vehicle. It is required in order to take a vehicle into a significant but diminishing number of countries around the world. The Carnet allows travelers to temporarily import their vehicles without having to leave a cash deposit at the border.

It is, in essence, an international guarantee for payment of customs duties and taxes to a government should the vehicle or item not be re-exported from that country. Persons who temporarily import their vehicles or items into countries where the Carnet is required must agree to obey the laws and regulations of that country and particularly the conditions of temporary importation.

The Carnet contains relevant information about the items or vehicle – make, model, color, engine capacity, seating capacity, registration number, owner and value. It’s an international agreement, organized by the Alliance International de Tourisme (AIT) in Switzerland, and administered through agents worldwide.

These agents are usually national automobile association or touring club such as: the RAC in the UK(Which is stopped issuing Carnet’s), ADAC in Germany, ANWB in the Netherlands, RACB in Belgium, ÖAMTC in Austria, TCS in Switzerland and the AAA in Australia. Theoretically, you could arrange your Carnet with any authorized agent but, in practice, they won’t issue Carnets for foreign owners or foreign vehicles e.g. the ADAC. They all have different rules.

Where do you need it?

The Carnet is needed in many countries like Iran, UAE, Oman, India, Nepal, Japan, Australia some of the African countries and some other countries in the world.

The deposit is how much?

Here’s the bad news. In order to obtain a Carnet, the owner of the items is required to provide a security based on the age and market value of the vehicles. Import taxes are very high in some countries. The AIT classifies countries into bands from 1 to 8 according to their tax regime.

To calculate your Carnet deposit, simply multiply the price of your bike by the band number of the countries you wish to cross. For example, Iran is in band 5, so requires a deposit of 5 times the value of your vehicle. Carnet deposits can be huge. It’s possible to reduce the deposit by lowering the estimated value of your bike, but the agent has to agree that the figure is fair and reasonable.

Different ways to pay :

The quickest and easiest method to pay the deposit is by cash or credit card. The downside is that a large amount of money is tied up during your trip. The agents have therefore organized alternative methods of payment. You can take out a Carnet insurance policy. If you default, the insurance company pays the deposit- but the small print says you have to pay the money back. Insurance usually costs about 10% of the deposit, and the minimum value they will underwrite is typically around €2000. Your bank can also guarantee the deposit, using your property or savings as security. Banks will usually charge for this service, and there may be additional administration fees for the agent.

Costs : 

If you are going to do Mongol rally Iran you may have guessed, you don’t get that thing for free, in fact, it isn’t even inexpensive and has its own difficulties. First, you need to pay a fee to the automobile club to get the Carnet done which depends on your country of residence. Moreover, you need to deposit some money to the automobile club which can be used if you don’t return home with your vehicle. Of course, you’ll get this money back once you arrive back home, but for some traveler to start a trip with the amount of deposit short will quite a hole in their budget.
