Carnet de Passages
Carnet de Passages are documents which allow the temporary import of vehicles into some countries without paying customs. Such documents are required for certain countries, especially in Africa. According to the ADAC ( german AAA ), a carnet de passages is also required in many south-american countries:
However many travelers reported that no carnet is needed. We decided to trust them and did not apply for a carnet de passages. You need to pay about 250 euro fee to get such a document and in addition you need to provide some financial securities. Anyway, if worst comes to worst, we can still try to get one locally.
