Malaysia acceded to the Convention on Temporary Admission of Goods (ATA Convention) in 1988. An ATA Carnet, also known as “Merchandise Passport” is a document that facilitates the temporary importation of products into foreign countries by eliminating tariffs and value-added taxes (VAT) or the posting of a security deposit generally required at the time of importation.
