Austria - Country Commercial Guide
Temporary Entry
Last published date:

Austria and the EU use the ATA Carnet Customs procedure used for temporary importation, transit and temporary admission of goods designed for specific purposes, duty-free and tax-free (such as professional equipment for presentations or trade fairs).

When entering Austria, business visitors should declare valuables. It is advisable to have a copy of the invoice available. The visitor will be issued a Customs document called a “Verwendungsschein,” which will also include the visitor’s departure date. When leaving Austria, the visitor should go through Customs again for a checkout..
