The CPD is valid for 12 months, but each country has its own rules on the period and the amount of time you can spend in that country. The period of temporary importation is fixed by the laws and regulations of the country visited. These must be strictly respected to avoid any incidents or claims as a result of breaking local laws. Therefore the duration spent in the country is out of CARS control.
CARS can advise on particular countries’ requirements at the time of application. However, these are liable to change at any time. We are unfortunately unable to guarantee current information. It is advised that you check each country’s rules on temporary importation prior to travelling as the CPD and CARS is not liable for any changes the country makes or if entry is refused.
In accordance with the Carnet handbook, your Carnet start date will be the date on which it is dispatched from our office. Please take this into consideration when making your travel arrangements. Please contact us if you are not happy for the Carnet to be dispatched on receipt of your payment.
