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.

Sorry – just to make this clear – you can not obtain a carnet for a motorcycle in Malaysia? So buying a bike in Malaysia and riding it into Nepal for example, is impossible – unless you pay the import tax.


Is it cdp available now?
