Carnet de Passage necessary to ship OUT of Argentina??

After searching the HUBB, it seems that neither a Carnet nor a libreta is necessary to travel in S. America. However, Grant Johnson mentioned that a Carnet is needed to ship INTO Argentina. My plans are to ship from Dallas into Peru (Feb. 07) and OUT of BosAs to Dallas (May 07). Will I need a Carnet or libreta? A prospective shipping company, BDP international suggests I get a Carnet.

Also, any recomendations on insurance for South America? One of the complications is that my bike (1981 R80G/S) is older than 20 ys. and difficult to get insured.

Thanks for the help-

Marcus

Marcus, I shipped my bike from Buenos Aires, Argentina to South Africa without a carnet. I had the carnet mailed to South Africa. When the carnet arrived in Capetown, I went to the airport and received the bike from customs- it only took about 20 minutes.

Smile No Carnet, No libretta

Hi marcus,

Hook is correct. No carnet or Libreta is needed in entire South-america.
Only Ecuador is a bit behind. You don't need it, but not all customs officers know this.

Arentina is "no problemo amigo"

Have fun
Maarten

err, that was 1997 - things have changed - NO carnet required at all for all of the Americas.

Maybe the most important on the official web site need to be showed in red and in bigger fonts:

“This list may contain errors due to changes in national legislation.”

This issue was long treated in the HUBB: YOU DON’T NEED IT in any way and in ALL SOUTH AMERICA…..
