Carnet De Passage (CPD) Malaysia

    Carnet De Passage Malaysia – A Carnet De Passage is a document that allows you to cross international borders with a vehicle and avoid paying customs charges.

    It is basically a promise that you will take the vehicle out of the country when you leave, or risk hefty penalties.

    The carnet lists comprehensive details on your vehicle and its value and can be obtained from the local automobile association in your country. Often, a bank deposit is also needed.

    Hi Chris,
    Looking to take a boat with my Thai registered bike from Port Klang to Sumatra around the middle of September 2022. Does not seem possible to get a carnet in Thailand. Am I right to assume it’s not possible to enter Indonesia without a carnet?


    Im a Singapore citizen with a Malaysian registered motorcycle in my name. Do I need a Carnet to ride to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam?
