Travel Information

Different destinations have different requirements on import and export of goods and vehicles.

Carnet de Passage en Douanes

A ‘Carnet de Passage en Douanes’ enables vehicles to be temporarily ‘imported’ into a country avoiding local duties and taxes.

A carnet is required for travel in: Africa (not required in Tunisia and Morocco); Australia/New Zealand; Far East; Middle East and is recommended in South America.

A Carnet de Passage en Douane section has been introduced on the FIA public website. The [FIA website] is a fundamental platform to ensure a wider visibility of the carnet at an international level.

On this site you will find information on:

  • About the carnet and the Triptych
  • Advantages of the carnet system
  • Where to get a carnet
  • How the carnet system functions
  • Carnet brochures (in Arabic, English, French and Spanish)

It is a requirement in almost every country to have motoring insurance on your vehicle before it arrives there. If you don’t have this then there is every chance that the bike will be denied entry.

Many people scan and email their important documents to themselves prior to travel. This way they can access them at any time from an internet café. As part of our service we will issue you with a key fob with our 24 hour number.

We will hold copies of your important paperwork on file and in the event of an accident/emergency. So should you not be able to access the internet our number is in your ignition and you or the authorities will be able to contact us.


You may encounter stretches of gravel road and even off road on your travels. Plan ahead and take in some training with the best to ensure that your riding skills are at their peak.
