Malaysia acceded to the Convention on Temporary Admission of Goods (ATA Convention) in 1988.  An ATA Carnet (a. k. a. “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.
