Welcome to Zurich Self-drive Tour Carnet Guarantee Application!


The launch of Ad Hoc Quota Trial Scheme for Cross Boundary Private Cars (Self-drive Tour Scheme) surely enables you to have a wonderful driving experience between Hong Kong and Guangdong Province; however, in order to fulfill the requirements by the China Customs, you need to apply for ATA Carnet issued by the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC) for the duty-free temporary admission of your private car into China.
