And User Guide that explains:
The ATA Carnet is a document that allows the temporary import export and import of merchandise into more than 80 countries while eliminating duties and value-added taxes (VAT) required in customs at the time of importation. The Initials "ATA" are an acronym of "Admission Temporary Admission".
ATA Carnets cover: commercial samples, professional equipment and goods for presentation or use at trade fairs, shows and exhibitions.
The ATA carnet is made up of several colored sheets of paper including a green cover which serves as the registration of goods, yellow exportation and re-importation counterfoils for use in the Holder’s country, and white importation and re-exportation counterfoils and corresponding vouchers for use in foreign countries.
Goods not re-exported from the foreign country by midnight of the expiry date or the date noted by the foreign customs authority as the “final date for re-exportation” (whichever is earlier) are subject to a claim from foreign customs.
