Yes, that's the Malaysian AA. Try emailing erly [at] aam.org.my . The Swiss Touring Club also does carnets for non-residents, you need to use the search on HUBB to find the details. And yes, do ask Paul Gowen.

Cheers,
Peter.

Check with Customs, you can do a temporay import into Australia by paying a security deposit.
Securities

Securities can also be used for the temporary import of goods. A Customs Officer with the appropriate delegation will decide if the intended use and ownership of the goods satisfies the temporary import requirements. The security may be in the form of cash or a bank guarantee. In some circumstances Customs may accept an undertaking from a suitable client. The security is an amount equal to the duty and taxes that would have been payable at import.
Goods that may be imported under security include any goods that may be accepted under carnet, plus goods owned by tourists or temporary residents, or goods that are coming to Australia to be tested and evaluated or to be used in testing and evaluation.
To import goods using a security you apply using a Form 46 (for goods under Section 162) or Form 46aa (for goods under Section 162A).
Another provision for the temporary import of goods exists for goods that are brought into Australia for repair or alteration, not including industrial processing. This is covered by Schedule Four of the Customs Tariff Act 1995 (by-law 9640055) and goods are entered under a Section 42 security.
For entry under any of these types of securities, copies of normal commercial import documents such as invoices, packing lists, bills of lading or air waybills, quarantine certificates and other documents that verify eligibility should be lodged with the application. Any permits that would normally be required for these goods must also be obtained. If your goods qualify and if an acceptable security or undertaking has been given to Customs we will grant permission for the goods to be delivered. You will also need to lodge a Customs declaration for the goods.

Goods, yes. Vehicles are specifically mentioned as needing a CdP.

hi all, we managed to ship our bike from LA to sydney.

getting the bike out of usa is a pain in the S.

with a carnet, the whole procedure is SO EASY!

without a carnet, we think it might be possible to import the bike but by filling in all the forms will make u surrender and thoughts of burning the bike comes after that!

I might be possible to import the bike without carnet... might be...

if anyone knows this, please feed...

thanks!

goh...happy now

I might add that the same legislation now requires Australian owned vehicles going out of Australia to get a carnet before Customs will allow it back into Australia. They have gone mad in Canberra!!
Well, no, it's not quite like that .....

I've just brought my Tassie reg'd bike back in from the States, arrived 27 November. Had to apply to import it!!! Yaarrrrk! After myriads of phone calls, eventually got to speak with someone in Canberra who understood logic (and the utter stupidity of what the bureauratic bunglers wanted me to do), and who then assisted me greatly and expeditiously.

I needed a photo of the ADR/compliance plate (the bike was still in the Qantas (Brisbane) warehouse, but Qantas staff were fabulous, and took the photo for me!!), ID docs, copies of the current and previous registration papers, the waybill from the outbound flight (to prove it had left Oz originally) and the multi-page Vehicle Import Application form. Instead of the usual **17** days, he authorised it's entry in just ONE day! But then he posted the approval letter to my home in Tassie - I was in Brisbane!! Oops! But he did a certified copy and sent it to me in Brisbane.

But, overall, had I known about these new rules that came in in March 2009, I could have done all the paperwork over the internet and had everything ready and waiting for when I arrived. BTW, for Australians returning home, there is absolutely NO NEED to use an [ripoff] agent! It is easy enough to do yourself, and the Customs staff will usually help, if you need help with anything.
