Carnet with expired registration
Sorry for yet another Carnet question, but I didn't find anything specific to this, only Grant's recommendation about Photoshop and a good printer
So I got the Carnet application on the way, it's got approved, payment details taken, then I was told that my Australian registration is about to expire in October. The Carnet period is from mid-August for a year and will be issued regardless.
Now, the lady at the motoring club is telling me I should renew the rego and email them a copy when I have it, but I'm already traveling in Australia and it would add major logistical problems (missing a boat to Dili and another 10.000km to ride) if I have to head back to the state (NSW) where I can take care of the rego. Also, I don't necessarily want to fork out a few hundred dollars for the registration and insurance that are useless oversas.
She's saying foreign organisations might contact them about the rego, but I'm a bit doubtful.
So...would it be safe for me to just ignore her request, get the Carnet issued (which she's happy to do), leave the country and just make up a new rego(looking paper) when the current one expires?
Is the registration date on the issued Carnet?
