Hi there.

The answer is yes and it's 800 percent of the value of the bike. The highest rate there is anywhere. You might get away with paying a deposit on the border if you'd rather do that. I've met people who have.

Cheers

Richard

Wowwwwww, 800 percent. Where I must to pay for that! You told for deposit on the border, do you think on 800 percents of the value of the bike?

make sure you have your carnet sorted out before you go anywhere NEAR egypt.
Its true the import duty without a carnet it 800% and it will be almost impossible without it as the administration system there is bad bad bad.

You have two options,
1. get an insurance to cover the carnet from the equivalent of the RAC in serbia, or from the RAC in the UK.

2. get your bank to give you a guarantee to cover the value of the carnet

oh and a third,

leave 800% of the value of the bike as a cash deposit with the RAC

This is not necessarily true; it depends on where you get the carnet issued.
In Norway it is 100% + 1600 Euro for Egypt (and most other countries).

Smile you value your vehicle

Don't forget that in the main, the carnet issuer will accept your valuation of your vehicle. So value it used, dirty, scratched etc. etc. - you get my drift!

Don't panic

Everything will be ok, don't panic. Go to AMSS and get it there, it should be a bargain. In Slovenia it still is. There should be even less vehicles travelling to Carnet countries from Serbia than they do from Slovenia, so your AMSS still shouldn't have a serious bad experience with customs clearance in Egypt and elsewhere, so the cost shouldn't be too high.

You can also do what I did and get a German carnet - you don't need to have a German registered vehicle or even be resident in Germany. Try the ADAC website (it's got text in English).

I have a Landcruiser and would have had to put up a 15,000 GBP deposit to get it into Egypt and the other worst countries (India, Pakistan and Iran) if I had done it in the UK, but doing it through the ADAC cost me just a 5000 Euro deposit.

Legal valuations can be done in many ways .. if you had to sell it now, right away the price is lower that if you could take some months to sell it .. what method you use is upto you.

When was this? I thought the ADAC stopped this for people outside of Germany.

Hi petefromberkely - ony just seen this. I took out a German carnet in March 2007, although it was post-dated to start in April. I too had heard that the ADAC had stopped issuing them for non-German vehicles, but this rumour proved to be exaggerated. I did have a slight advantage in that I have a German friend and had him interpreting for me and was able to give his (Hannover) address. But I was assured that the only difference this made was that we were able to go in person to the Hannover branch of the ADAC and get the carnet issued there...if I had applied from outside Germany, I would have had to do it by post to the ADAC HQ in Munich. If you speak German, or know someone who can do so for you, let me know if you want me to find out the name of the contact I spoke to in Hannover - she was very helpful.

Mark
