In 2007 I drove a Land Rover WolfXD around the world, using a Carnet De Passages issued by the RAC for a UK registered vehicle. Since then i have moved to Thailand, had a family etc. We are now planning to return to UK, and want to use this opportunity to travel overland, through Myanmar, India, Central Asia & Europe. Thailand is a member of the ATA carnet countries, although I have not yet started to communicate with the customs offices on what is possible through them. My plan would be to import the vehicle to the UK when I arrive (Prepped Ford Ranger 2017 3.2Tdci D/Cab, owned for over 1 year). I am trying to get my head around whether this will work. I assume I would have to export the vehicle when we leave the country, leading to registration issues. If I require a Carnet, for the chosen route, it would require the vehicle to be returned to Thailand, which is not the plan. I could look at a route not requiring a carnet. Or I could look at getting the carnet issued by another country? Any thoughts or advice welcome.
