    This article is a travel topic

A Carnet de Passage is a document that allows you to cross international borders with a vehicle and avoid paying customs charges. It is basically a promise that you will take the vehicle out of the country when you leave, or risk hefty penalties.

The carnet lists comprehensive details on your vehicle and its value, and can be obtained from the local automobile club in your country. Often a bank deposit is also needed.

Also see a map of countries that require carnets.
