Temporary Entry
Last published date:

The Mauritius Customs Department may authorize the temporary entry of goods for a period of six months where the importer furnishes adequate security to cover the duty and other taxes (if applicable) which would otherwise be payable.  The importer may be exempted from furnishing security if the goods are covered by documents for temporary entry issued under a recognized international convention.  For example, the ATA Carnet, an internationally recognized document for the temporary admission of goods under the Istanbul Convention, is administered by the Mauritius Chamber of Commerce and Industry.  ATA Carnets do not cover perishable goods or goods for processing or repair.  Additional information on the ATA Carnet system can be obtained from the Mauritius Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
