Other Applications : ATA Carnets are accepted for transit operations
ATA Carnets are not accepted for postal traffic.
Languages in which Carnets should be completed : English and Spanish
Customs officers are given discretionary powers to require the importer or his agent to furnish an English translation where necessary. These powers are rarely used.
Replacement of Carnet : Replacement Carnets would be accepted on a case by case basis. It is
recommended that the carnet holder asks the question before trying to cross the border. It would depend on the reason for the carnet being replaced with a duplicate.
Customs Offices : ATA carnets are accepted at the port and airport where Customs facilities
for the clearance of goods and passengers' baggage are provided. At the land frontier with Spain ATA carnets are accepted at all hours.
There are not special hours relating only to the acceptance of ATA carnets and Customs clearance is effected during the official hours of opening at the port or airport. For traffic over the land boundary between Spain and Gibraltar ATA carnets are accepted 24 hours a day
