Carnet required for South America

I'm very confused about whether a Carnet is required for an Alaska - Argentina trip. My earlier reading (including the info on the horizons pages http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/tri...er/index.shtml )

Indicated that a carnet was not required for any country in the Americas.

I had a talk with our local motoring association (Australia NRMA) and they asked where I was going and they claimed that I would need a Carnet for Columbia only??

I then checked the AIT website and they show a listing of which countries a CDP is required

Public - Carnet de Passages en Douane

Columbia is one as well as several other countries Argentina Chile etc but they were not mentioned by the NRMA people

And finally I had a look at the Wikepedia entry for carnet de passage (Yes, I read it with a large grain of salt)

Carnet de Passage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They list countries where a CPD is required and countries where a CPD is accepted. What is the difference?

Can anyone write back about their on the ground experiences versus what is the official position.

Thanks for your help

Ian J

Carnet for Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Ecuador is not required, this i know for sure. Research on the HUBB tells me that it is not required for any country in the America's. This can be confirmed by the countless travelers that have and are currently traveling through the America's now. Just go, man. It'll be okay
