A permit is required for the temporary import of goods, which takes place under the supervision of Polish customs officials. Written confirmation is required, stating that the goods will be sent from Poland on specific dates.  A deposit is required for the import of the goods subject to clearance, which must equal the value of the goods to be exported or the total import customs duty and taxes.  Commercial samples of zero or low value can usually be imported free of customs duty by means of a written statement to Polish customs confirming the value of the sample and that it will stay in the possession of the importing entity.  Promotional materials must be clearly marked “no commercial value” in order to clear customs. Temporary imports may also enter Poland under an ATA (Temporary Admission) Carnet. 

 More information on the ATA Carnet is found at trade.gov.

As of May 2015, the EU-wide legislation applies to the Temporary Importation of means of transport. Existing regulation has been amended to exclude the possibility of misuse in case of Temporary Importation of means of transport.
