                           CUSTOMS CONVENTION
              ON THE TEMPORARY IMPORTATION FOR PRIVATE USE
                     OF AIRCRAFT AND PLEASURE BOATS
   
                          (Geneva, 18.V.1956)
   
                                Preamble
   
       The Contracting Parties,
       Having regard  to  the Agreement providing for the Provisional
   Application of the  Draft  International  Customs  Conventions  on
   Touring,  on  Commercial  Road  Vehicles  and on the International
   Transport of Goods by Road, done at Geneva on 16 June 1949, and in
   particular,  to Article V of the Agreement, which provides that in
   the event that world-wide conventions  dealing  with  the  subject
   matter  of  the  draft  conventions  provisionally  applied by the
   Agreement "should be concluded,  and upon their entry into  force,
   any  Government party to this Agreement,  which becomes a party to
   one or more of those Conventions shall automatically  be  regarded
   as  having  denounced  the  present  Agreement with respect to the
   Draft Convention or Conventions  corresponding  to  any  of  those
   Conventions to which that Government has become a party";
       Having regard to the Convention concerning Customs  Facilities
   for   Touring   and   the  Customs  Convention  on  the  Temporary
   Importation of Private Road Vehicles,  both done at  New  York  on
   4 June 1954;
       Considering that  unlike  the  Draft   International   Customs
   Convention  on Touring brought into provisional application by the
   Agreement of  16  June  1949,  the  said  Conventions  contain  no
   provision  concerning  temporary duty-free importation of aircraft
   and pleasure boats other than kayaks and canoes in use  and  under
   5.5 metres in length;
       Desiring to  facilitate  the  development   of   international
   touring by means of aircraft and pleasure boats;
       Have agreed as follows:
   
                         Chapter I. DEFINITIONS

       For the purpose of this Convention:
       (a) The  term  "import duties and import taxes" shall mean not
   only Customs  duties  but  also  all  duties  and  taxes  whatever
   chargeable by reason of importation;
       (b) The  term  "boats"  shall  mean  all  pleasure  boats  and
   pleasure vessels with or without engines together with their spare
   parts,  and their normal accessories and equipment  when  imported
   with the boats or vessels;
       (c) The term  "aircraft"  shall  mean  all  aircraft  with  or
   without  engines  together with their spare parts and their normal
   accessories and equipment when imported with the aircraft;
       (d) The  term  "private use" shall mean the use of aircraft or
   boats,  by their owners or  by  persons  who  have  possession  or
   control of them,  whether on hire or otherwise, for non-commercial
   purposes and, in particular, for purposes other than the transport
   of persons for remuneration,  reward or other consideration or the
   industrial and commercial  transport  of  goods  with  or  without
   remuneration;
       (e) The term "temporary importation  papers"  shall  mean  the
   Customs  document  identifying  the aircraft or boat and providing
   evidence of the guarantee or deposit of import duties  and  import
   taxes;
       (f) The term "persons"  shall  mean  both  natural  and  legal
   persons unless the context otherwise requires.

   resident outside its territory which are  imported  and  utilized,
   for their private use on the occasion of a temporary visit, either
   by the owners of  the  aircraft  or  boats  or  by  other  persons
   normally resident outside its territory.
       2. Such aircraft and  boats  shall  be  covered  by  temporary
   importation  papers  guaranteeing  payment  of  import  duties and
   import taxes,  and if  the  case  should  arise,  of  any  Customs
   penalties incurred,   subject   to   the   special   provision  of

   papers.
       2. Replaced parts which are not re-exported shall be liable to

   the regulations of the country concerned,  they may  be  abandoned
   free of all expense to the Exchequer or destroyed,  under official
   supervision, at the expense of the parties concerned.
   
                               Article 5
   
       Temporary importation papers sent to  associations  authorized
   to  issue  the  papers  in  question  by the corresponding foreign
   associations,  by international organizations or  by  the  Customs
   authorities of the Contracting Parties,  shall be admitted without
   payment of import duties and  import  taxes  and  free  of  import
   prohibitions and restrictions.
   
           Chapter III. ISSUE OF TEMPORARY IMPORTATION PAPERS

                               Article 7
   
       1. Temporary importation papers valid for the  territories  of
   all  or  several  of  the  Contracting  Parties  shall be known as

   respect of boats,  to the standard form contained in Annex  2,  to
   this Convention.
       2. If a carnet de passages en douane is not valid for  one  or

   fact on the cover and on the importation vouchers of the carnet.
       3. Temporary  importation  papers intended for boats and valid
   only for the territory of a single Contracting Party  may  conform

        Chapter IV. PARTICULARS ON TEMPORARY IMPORTATION PAPERS
   
                               Article 8
   
       Temporary importation papers issued by authorized associations
   shall be made out in the name of the persons who own the  aircraft
   or  boats  temporarily  imported  or  who  have  the possession or
   control of them.  When such papers,  issued in  respect  of  hired
   aircraft  or  boats are made out in the name of the person letting
   out on hire,  the words "On hire to..." followed by the  name  and
   the  address  of  the normal residence in a foreign country of the
   person concerned,  shall,  when the  Customs  authorities  of  the
   country  of  temporary importation so require,  be inserted on all
   counterfoils and vouchers used in connection with the journeys  of
   the person taking the aircraft or boat on hire.
   
                               Article 9
   
       1. The  weight  to be declared on temporary importation papers
   is the net weight of aircraft or boats.  It shall be expressed  in
   the  metric  system.  In  the case of papers valid for one country
   only,  the Customs authorities of that country may  prescribe  the
   use of another system.
       2. The value to be declared on  temporary  importation  papers
   valid  for  one country only shall be expressed in the currency of
   that country.  The value to be declared on a carnet de passages en
   douane shall be expressed in the currency of the country where the
   carnet is issued.
       3. The  articles  and tool-kit which form the normal equipment
   of aircraft or  boats  need  not  be  specially  declared  on  the
   temporary importation papers.
       4. When the Customs authorities so require,  spare  parts  and
   accessories not considered as constituting the normal equipment of
   the  aircraft  or  boat  shall  be  declared  on   the   temporary
   importation  papers with the necessary particulars (such as weight
   and value) and shall be produced on exit from the country visited.
   
                               Article 10
   
       Any particulars inserted on temporary  importation  papers  by
   the  issuing  association may be altered only with the approval of
   the issuing or guaranteeing  association.  No  alteration  to  the
   papers  may  be  made  after  they have been passed by the Customs
   authorities of the country of importation except with the  consent
   of those authorities.
   
             Chapter V. CONDITIONS OF TEMPORARY IMPORTATION
   
                               Article 11
   
       1. Aircraft  and  boats  admitted  under  cover  of  temporary
   importation papers may be used,  for their private use,  by  third
   persons  duly  authorized  by the holders of the papers,  provided
   that those third persons normally reside outside  the  country  of
   importation and also fulfil the other conditions laid down in this
   Convention.  The Customs authorities of  the  Contracting  Parties
   shall  have  the right to require evidence that such third persons
   have been duly authorized by the holders of the papers and  fulfil
   the  aforesaid  conditions.  If  this  evidence  does  not  appear
   sufficient,  the Customs  authorities  may  refuse  use  of  these
   aircraft and boats in their country under cover of the papers.  In
   the case  of  aircraft  or  boats  which  have  been  hired,  each
   Contracting  Party may require that the person taking the aircraft
   or boat on hire be present at  the  time  of  importation  of  the
   aircraft or boat.
       2. Notwithstanding the provisions of the preceding  paragraph,
   the  Customs  authorities  of  the Contracting Parties may permit,
   under conditions of which  they  shall  be  the  sole  judges,  an
   aircraft  or boat circulating under cover of temporary importation
   papers to be manned by a crew composed of persons who are normally
   resident  in  the  country of importation,  in particular when the
   crew  of  the  aircraft  or  boat  acts  on  behalf  of  or  under
   instructions from the holder of the temporary importation papers.
   
                               Article 12
   
       1. Aircraft or boats mentioned in temporary importation papers
   shall be re-exported in the same general state,  except  for  wear
   and  tear,  within  the period of validity of such papers.  In the
   case of aircraft or boats  which  have  been  hired,  the  Customs
   authorities  of  the  Contracting  Parties shall have the right to
   require the re-exportation of the aircraft or boat as soon as  the
   hirer has left the country of temporary importation.
       2. Evidence of re-exportation shall be provided  by  the  exit
   visa  properly appended to the temporary importation papers by the
   Customs authorities of the country into which the aircraft or boat
   was temporarily imported.
       3. Contracting Parties may,  however,  make the  discharge  of
   temporary  importation papers for aircraft subject to proof of the
   arrival of the aircraft in foreign territory.
   
                               Article 13
   
       1. Notwithstanding the requirement of re-exportation laid down
   in Article 12,  the re-exportation  of badly  damaged aircraft  or
   boats shall not  be required,  in the case  of duly  authenticated
   accidents, provided that the aircraft or boats:
       (a) Are  subjected  to  the  import duties and import taxes to
   which they are liable; or
       (b) Are  abandoned free of all expense to the Exchequer of the
   country into which they were imported temporarily; or
       (c) Are destroyed,  under official supervision, at the expense
   of the parties concerned,  any salvaged parts and materials  being
   subjected  to the import duties and import taxes to which they are
   liable, as the Customs authorities may require.
       2. When an aircraft or boat  temporarily  imported  cannot  be
   re-exported as a result of a seizure, other than a seizure made at
   the suit of private persons,  the  requirement  of  re-exportation
   within  the period of validity of the temporary importation papers
   shall be suspended for the duration of the seizure.
       3. The  Customs authorities shall notify,  so far as possible,
   to the guaranteeing association,  seizures made by or on behalf of
   those  Customs  authorities  of  aircraft  or boats admitted under
   cover  of  temporary  importation  papers   guaranteed   by   that
   association  and  shall  advise  it of the measures they intend to
   take.
   
                               Article 14
   
       An aircraft or boat imported into the territory of one of  the
   Contracting  Parties  under  cover of temporary importation papers
   may  not  be  used,  even  incidentally,  for  transport   against
   remuneration,  reward or other consideration between points within
   the frontiers of that territory or outwards from  that  territory.
   It  may  not be hired out after importation and if it was imported
   on hire it may not be re-hired to any person other than the person
   who hired it originally.
   
                               Article 15
   
       Persons entitled  to  temporary  importation  facilities  may,
   during the period of validity  of  temporary  importation  papers,
   import  the  aircraft or boats covered by those papers as often as
   necessary,  on condition that they have each  passage  (entry  and
   exit)  established  by a visa of the Customs officers concerned if
   the Customs authorities so require.  Temporary importation  papers
   may however be made valid for a single journey only.
   
                               Article 16
   
       When temporary  importation papers without detachable vouchers
   for each passage are used  for  boats,  the  visas  given  by  the
   Customs  officers between the first entry and the final exit shall
   be provisional.  Nevertheless, when the last visa is a provisional
   exit visa,  it shall be admitted as proof of the re-exportation of
   the boat or component parts temporarily imported.
   
                               Article 17
   
       When temporary importation papers with  a  detachable  voucher
   for each passage are used,  each entry visa implies the passing of
   the document by the Customs authorities,  and each subsequent exit
   visa  constitutes  its  final  discharge,  except  as  provided in
   Article 18.
   
                               Article 18
   
       When the Customs authorities of a  country  have  finally  and
   unconditionally  discharged  temporary importation papers they can
   no longer claim  from  the  guaranteeing  association  payment  of
   import   duties  and  import  taxes,  unless  the  certificate  of
   discharge was obtained improperly or fraudulently.
   
                               Article 19
   
       Visas on  temporary  importation   papers   used   under   the
   conditions  laid  down  in this Convention shall not be subject to
   the payment of charges for Customs attendance, provided such visas
   are issued at a Customs office or post during authorized hours.
   
                   Chapter VI. EXTENSION OF VALIDITY
              AND RENEWAL OF TEMPORARY IMPORTATION PAPERS
   
                               Article 20
   
       The lack of proof of re-exportation within the time allowed of
   aircraft  or  boats temporarily imported shall be disregarded when
   the aircraft or boats are presented to the Customs authorities for
   re-exportation  within fourteen days from the expiry of the papers
   and satisfactory explanations of the delay are given.
   
                               Article 21
   
       Each of the  Contracting  Parties  shall  recognize  as  valid
   extensions of validity of carnets de passages en douane granted by
   another Contracting State in accordance with  the  procedure  laid
   down in Annex 4 to this Convention.
   
                               Article 22
   
       1. Requests for extension of validity of temporary importation
   papers shall be presented to  the  competent  Customs  authorities
   before  the  expiry  of  the  period  of validity of these papers,
   unless this is  rendered  impossible  by  force  majeure.  If  the
   temporary  importation  papers  have  been issued by an authorized
   association,  the request for  extension  shall  be  made  by  the
   association which guarantees the papers.
       2. Extensions of time  necessary  for  the  re-exportation  of
   aircraft or boats or component parts imported temporarily shall be
   granted  when  the  persons  concerned  can   establish   to   the
   satisfaction of the Customs authorities that they are prevented by
   force majeure  from  re-exporting  the  said  aircraft,  boats  or
   component parts within the time allowed.
   
                               Article 23
   
       Each of  the Contracting Parties shall,  unless the conditions
   of temporary admission are no longer satisfied, authorize, subject
   to  whatever  measures  of control it may consider necessary,  the
   renewal of temporary importation papers issued by  the  authorized
   associations  and  relating to aircraft,  boats or component parts
   temporarily imported into  its  territory.  Requests  for  renewal
   shall be presented by the guaranteeing association.
   
                Chapter VII. REGULARIZATION OF TEMPORARY
                           IMPORTATION PAPERS
   
                               Article 24
   
       1. If temporary importation papers  have  not  been  regularly
   discharged,  the Customs authorities of the country of importation
   shall (whether the papers have expired or not) accept as  evidence
   of  re-exportation  of the aircraft,  boats or component parts the
   presentation of a certificate based on the standard form shown  in
   Annex  5  to  this  Convention,  issued  by  an official authority
   (consul,  Customs,  police,  mayor,   judicial   officer,   etc.),
   attesting the facts that the aircraft,  boat or component parts in
   question have been presented to it and are outside the country  of
   importation.  The  said  Customs  authorities  may also accept any
   other documentary evidence that the aircraft,  boat  or  component
   parts  are  outside  the  country  of importation.  In the case of
   papers,  other than carnet de passage en douane,  which  have  not
   expired, the said Customs authorities may require the papers to be
   surrendered to them before the date on which the aircraft or  boat
   in  question  was certified to be outside the country of temporary
   importation.  In the case of carnets,  account shall be taken,  as
   evidence  of re-exportation of the aircraft,  boats,  or component
   parts,  of the visas entered thereon by the Customs authorities of
   countries subsequently visited.
       2. In the case of the destruction,  loss or theft of temporary
   importation  papers  not  regularly  discharged  but  relating  to
   aircraft,  boats or component parts which have  been  re-exported,
   the Customs authorities of the country of importation shall accept
   as proof of re-exportation the presentation of certificates  based
   on the standard form shown in Annex 5 to this Convention issued by
   an official authority (consul,  Customs,  police,  mayor, judicial
   officer,  etc.),  attesting the facts that the aircraft,  boats or
   component parts in question have been  presented  to  it  and  are
   outside the country of importation after the date of expiry of the
   papers.  They may also accept any other documentary evidence  that
   the aircraft,  boats or component parts are outside the country of
   temporary importation.
       3. In the case of the destruction, loss or theft of carnets de
   passages en douane while aircraft,  boats or  component  parts  to
   which  they  refer  are in the territory of one of the Contracting
   Parties,  the Customs authorities of  that  Party  shall,  at  the
   request of the association concerned, accept replacement documents
   the validity of which shall expire on the date of  expiry  of  the
   validity  of the carnets which they replace.  This acceptance will
   annul the previous acceptance of the carnets  destroyed,  lost  or
   stolen.  If,  instead of replacement documents, export licences or
   similar  documents  are  issued  for  the  re-exportation  of  the
   aircraft,  boats  or  component  parts,  the  exit  visas on these
   licences or documents shall be considered as sufficient  proof  of
   re-exportation.
       4. If  aircraft  or  boats  are  stolen  after   having   been
   re-exported  from  the  country  of importation,  without the exit
   having been regularly endorsed on the temporary importation papers
   and in the absence of entry visas on the papers entered thereon by
   the Customs authorities of  countries  subsequently  visited,  the
   papers   may   nevertheless   be  regularized  provided  that  the
   guaranteeing association furnishes the papers together  with  such
   evidence  of  theft  as  may  be  considered  sufficient.  If  the
   temporary  importation  papers  have  not  expired,  the   Customs
   authorities may require their surrender.
   
                               Article 25
   
       In the   cases   referred   to  in  Article  24,  the  Customs
   authorities shall have the right to charge a regularization fee.
   
                               Article 26
   
       Customs authorities shall not have the right to  require  from
   the  guaranteeing  association payment of import duties and import
   taxes on aircraft,  boats or component parts temporarily  imported
   when the non-discharge of the temporary importation papers has not
   been notified to the guaranteeing association within one  year  of
   the date of expiry of the validity of those papers.
   
                               Article 27
   
       1. The  guaranteeing  associations  shall have a period of one
   year from  the  date  of  notification  of  the  non-discharge  of
   temporary  importation  papers  in  which  to furnish proof of the
   re-exportation of  the  aircraft,  boats  or  component  parts  in
   question under the conditions laid down in this Convention.
       2. If such proof is not furnished within the time allowed, the
   guaranteeing   association   shall   forthwith   deposit   or  pay
   provisionally the import duties and  import  taxes  payable.  This
   deposit  or  payment shall become final after a period of one year
   from the date of the deposit or provisional  payment.  During  the
   latter period, the guaranteeing association may still avail itself
   of the facilities provided by the preceding paragraph with a  view
   to repayment of the sums deposited or paid.
       3. For countries whose regulations  do  not  provide  for  the
   deposit  or provisional payment of import duties and import taxes,
   payments made in conformity with the provisions of  the  preceding
   paragraph will be regarded as final,  it being understood that the
   sums paid may be refunded when the conditions laid  down  in  this
   article are fulfilled.
       4. In the case of the non-discharge of  temporary  importation
   papers,  the guaranteeing association shall not be required to pay
   a sum greater than the total of the import duties and import taxes
   applicable   to   the  aircraft,  boats  or  component  parts  not
   re-exported, together with interest if applicable.
   
                               Article 28
   
       The provisions of this Convention do not affect the  right  of
   the Contracting Parties,  in the event of fraud,  contravention or
   abuse,  to take proceedings against holders  of,  or  the  persons
   using,  temporary  importation  papers,  for  the  recovery of the
   import duties and import taxes and also to impose any penalties to
   which such persons have rendered themselves liable. In such cases,
   the guaranteeing associations shall lend their assistance  to  the
   Customs authorities.

   system of importation laid down in this Convention, may render the
   offender  liable in the country where the offence was committed to
   the penalties prescribed by the laws of that country.

                               Article 32
   
       Nothing in  this  Convention  shall be deemed to prejudice the
   right of each Contracting Party to apply  import  prohibitions  or
   restrictions  based  on  considerations  other  than  economic  in
   character,  for example considerations of public morality,  public
   security, public health or hygiene.

                         EXTENSION OF VALIDITY
                  OF THE CARNET DE PASSAGES EN DOUANE
   
       1. The stamp for extension of validity shall  conform  to  the
   model given in the present annex.
       The  text shall be drawn up in French,  but may be repeated in
   another language.
       2. The  following  procedure  shall  be observed by the person
   requesting the  extension  and  by  the  guaranteeing  association
   dealing with the request:
       (a) When the holder of a carnet de passages  en  douane  finds
   himself  obliged to request an extension of the period of validity
   of the document,  he should send the carnet  to  the  guaranteeing
   association  with  a  request  for  its extension,  explaining the
   circumstances which oblige him to  make  the  request.  He  should
   enclose  with  his  request,  as  supporting  evidence,  a medical
   certificate,  a statement  from  the  repair  shop  repairing  his
   vehicle,  or some other authentic document to prove that the delay
   in question is caused by force majeure.
       (b) If the guaranteeing association considers that the request
   for extension can be passed on  to  the  Customs  authorities,  it
   should  affix  the  stamp  referred to in paragraph 1 on the front
   cover of the carnet de  passages  en  douane  in  the  space  left
   especially for the purpose.
       (c) In the left-hand section of  the  stamp  the  guaranteeing
   association  should  enter,  in figures and words,  the date until
   which the extension is requested. The President of the association
   or  his representative should affix his signature and the stamp of
   the association.
       (d) The  length  of the extension must not exceed a reasonable
   time in which to complete the journey,  and  should  not  normally
   exceed  three  months  from  the  previous  date  of expiry of the
   carnet.
       (e) The  guaranteeing  association should then send the carnet
   to the competent  Customs  authority  in  its  country,  with  the
   holder's application and the supporting evidence attached.
       (f) The Customs authority will decide  whether  the  extension
   can be granted.  It may shorten the period of extension requested,
   or refuse to grant any extension whatsoever.  If an  extension  is
   granted,   the  competent  Customs  officer  should  fill  in  the
   remaining spaces on the stamp affixed on the cover of  the  carnet
   by  the  guaranteeing association,  inserting a serial or registry
   number,  the place and date,  his official status,  and adding his
   signature and the Customs stamp.
       (g) The carnet should then be  returned  to  the  guaranteeing
   association,  which  in  turn  should  hand  it back to the person
   concerned.

                          (Geneva, 18.V.1956)
   
       At the time of signing the Convention of this day's date,  the
   undersigned, duly authorized, make the following declarations:
       1. When a Contracting Party considers carnets de  passages  en
   douane   indispensable   for   certain  commercial  aircraft,  the
   provisions of this Convention shall be applied mutatis mutandis.
       2. The terms of this Convention set out minimum facilities. It
   is  not  the  intention of the Contracting Parties to restrict the
   wider facilities which are granted or may be granted by certain of
   them  in  respect  of  the  temporary  importation of aircraft and
   pleasure boats.
       3. The Contracting Parties reserve the right to grant the same
   advantages to  persons  normally  resident  on  the  territory  of
   non-Contracting Parties.
       4. The Contracting Parties  recognize  that  the  satisfactory
   operation  of this Convention requires the provision of facilities
   to the authorized associations for:
       (a) The  transfer of the currency necessary for the payment of
   import duties and import taxes claimed by Customs  authorities  of
   one  of the Contracting Parties for non-discharge of the temporary
   importation papers covered by this Convention;
       (b) The  transfer  of currency when repayment of import duties
   or import taxes is made in accordance with the  arrangements  laid
   down in article 27 of this Convention; and
       (c) The  transfer  of  currency  for  payment  for   temporary
   importation  papers  sent  to  the  authorized associations by the
   corresponding associations or federations.
       In witness  whereof,  the  undersigned,  being duly authorized
   thereto, have signed this Protocol.
   
       Done at Geneva,  this eighteenth day of May one thousand  nine
   hundred and fifty-six,  in a single copy in the English and French
   languages, each text being equally authentic.
