North America (USA Canada) CDP Carnet Information Boomerang Carnets

    Prior to 2015, in North America the CAA would issue carnets to both US and Canadian residents.

    Since 2015 the CAA no longer issues carnets.

    CDP's are managed by both the AIT and FIA, normally local agreements exist, where an issuing country's association will agree to issue carnets on behalf of other countries, i.e Germany do this for a number of countries officially. i.e - The Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, and are happy to issue them to others at their own discretion like Ireland.

    The current issue is that the FIA's new issuer has been delayed. No other issuer has agreed to formally issue them for north america, and those who might want to help may not always be able due to their own insurance limitations, currently we are aware that Malaysia, South Africa and off course the RAC may be willing to issue carnets to North Americans.

    Current update 15 Oct 2015
    Carnet Update North America: The new issuer has completed all required legal work with the FIA but is still progressing with authorisation from the government to issue CDP's (they currently issue ATA Carnets). This was due to have been completed a couple months ago and no one has any insight as to when it will be completed. Current advice, if travelling to Africa use the http://www.aa.co.za/ If going to Asia try http://www.aam.org.my/, and if desperate the RAC will issue you a carnet. *since there is no current issuer you may apply to any Carnet Issuer, the issue is finding one which has 1) insurance to cover 2) offers reasonable rates 3) wants to issue you one. If you have success obtaining a carnet please post the details for others
