ATA and EU/CPD/China-Taiwan carnets as transit documents: action to be carried out at the office of exit - third country carnets

The office of exit will complete the carnet to show that the transit movement has ended. To do this it must complete the blue voucher and counterfoil that have already been started by the office of entry into the EU.

Completion of the blue transit voucher:

Item Information required
