This document, known as the CPD or Trip Ticket, plays a vital international role in facilitating the temporary entry of motor vehicles. It is sanctioned by the Alliance Internationale de Tourism and the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile in adherence to the UN customs conventions regarding the temporary importation of motor vehicles established in 1954 and 1956.
The CPD, or Trip Ticket, serves as a mechanism that allows vehicles registered in Saudi Arabia to gain temporary admission to foreign countries without the obligation to pay customs duties. However, this privilege is contingent on the subsequent re-exportation of the vehicle from the host country upon the expiration of the temporary period. It’s important to note that this requirement doesn’t apply when entering countries within the Gulf Cooperation Council.
