PENANG to MEDAN on a motorbike with no CARNET POSSIBLE???

PENANG to MEDAN on a motorbike with no CARNET POSSIBLE???


Hi there to all and
everyone who have done this before:

PENANG (Malaysia) to BELAWAN-MEDAN (Indonesia), what happens if one is shipping his bike without a CARNET de PASSAGE?

We are riding a motorbike with a Thai registr. plate. Unfortunately the Thai Government or any other Automobile Club of Thailand DOES NOT release any CARNET, reason being that apparently there has never been anyone who has wanted to drive or ride any vehicle with a Thai plate into Indonesia....and therefore they do not even seem to know what a CARNET is.
What they do know is a ATA Carnet, which is usually a document that is being issued by the Thai authority if one wants to go exhibit goods etc... temporarily in another Country.

This is what the Automobile Club of Thailand told us.

We find this veryyyy strange but if true we are really struggling to understand and arrange procedures to get our motorbike onto Indonesian ground.

Does anyone know what we can do about it?

Looking forward to get your information.

Best to all.

Frank V

As I had the same question before and not to leave this unanswered.

No, it's not possible or you better don't try to bring a vehicle to Indonesia without carnet. Even with carnet it's a hassle. Heard very bad things from friends who shipped from Port Klang to Jakarta and same from Dumai.

We shipped to Tanjung Balai which was pretty smooth.
