U.A.E. Update - Abu Dhabi


Abu Dhabi will begin accepting ATA Carnets for the temporary admission of goods effective October 1st, 2011. Goods travelling on ATA Carnets for trade shows and fairs or similar events will be able to enter this emirate through the Abu Dhabi International Airport and the seaport of Zayed.

U.A.E. became the 69th country to join the ATA Carnet system last April 1st 2011.  Since U.A.E. joined, significant demand for ATA Carnets for travel to Dubai and multiple requests for use in Abu Dhabi have been received.

Abu Dhabi is the capital and the largest city in the United Arab Emirates. It is the country's centre of political, industrial activities, and a major cultural, and commercial centre due to its position as the capital. Its rapid development and urbanisation has transformed Abu Dhabi to a larger and advanced metropolis.The expansion, coupled with the emirate’s strong buying power, provides an excellent opportunity for UK businesses to sell their products.

ATA Carnets are temporary passports that permit the duty-free, tax-free export of goods. Prior to Abu Dhabi’s acceptance, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Mexico were the latest territories to join the worldwide system, which is overseen by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the World Customs Organisation.
