*Please note:

  • The time frames are based on working days. Public holidays are not included in the hours allowance.
  • The Urgent and Same Day processing times are subject to the Chambers workload and this service cannot be guaranteed.
  • Carnets cannot be sent to customers until the bond/indemnity/security is in place.
  • Both the fully completed and signed application form and goods list must be received by the Chamber within the allotted times above to qualify for a particular price.
  • Carnets and pages requested but unused will still incur all processing fees.

Regularisation Fees

  • Please ensure that the white re-exportation form is completed by US Customs when the goods depart the USA. Goods must be re-exported from the USA prior to the expiry of the Carnet.
  • If the re-exportation counterfoil is not completed by US Customs then a regularisation fee will become payable to the Wellington Chamber of Commerce to cover the penalty fees levied by US Customs.
  • If goods are not re-exported prior to the expiry date, penalty fees, and full payment of taxes/duties will be required.
