Carnet de Passages en Douane
is a "Notebook for Passing Through Customs" or carnet or called a triptic.
A carnet is a simple customs document but not reconixed in Thailand & is a passport for your motor vehicle/ motorcycle when you take it overseas & thru countries as on a tour. It allows temporary import for a limited period of time without paying money at each border, so its like customs duty and other excise taxes except no payment is necessary. It saves you time and hassles. [ See Caret information ]
Thailand is not a party to the CARNET but they will allow you to use on the border with Malaysia but you must exit the same way at the same border.
SHIPPING BIKES TO AUSTRALIA :
If you want to ship a bike from Thailand to Australia new rules apply. Before shipping the bike get approval from the Dept of Infrastructure & Planning in Australia. We cannot do this only you. The process costs about $A30?? and takes up to 15 days. Don't send before as the bike will remain in quarantine & storage and charges can range from $150-180 per day while the bike is processed. If wanting to ship we can assist you so ask us. Please check back in Australia first with the Customs and these road transport requirements. Before you send you must dereg the bike. You can do this by taking the bike to the Reg dept and receive letter of dereg or we can do for you as once processed you lose the plates & tabian [ this is stamped null & void so hold on to it]. We can also translate the letter for you.
2016: Bikes that are not registered in Thailand & bought then shipped can only be shipped out as parts to other countries. It is up to you to find out in your country if you can then register the bike for the road coming in as PARTS ONLY. Please do not ask us.
Before shipping check with Dept of Infrastructure & Planning in Australia as this process takes 15 days and you should do this before shipping the bike:
|1/. Country destination & sea port entry
||2/. Year, Make, model & measurements of the bike
