BMF CPD Application

Traveling around the world by motor vehicle is the ambition of many people. The motor vehicle gives freedom to travel independently, stay longer or shorter time as the mood takes you, as well as the opportunity to visit places off the beaten track and to visit well known sights and attractions. It also allows you to experience different cultures and meet people from diverse backgrounds.

Just as you, as a person, require international identification, commonly by way of passport The document used to identify your vehicle is called a Carnet de Passages en Duane (CPD) which comes from the French meaning 'notebook'. It is a set of vouchers and Customs simply remove one each time you pass in and out of each country.

The Bahrain Motor Federation is a member of the Alliance International de Tourism (AIT) and is authorized to issue its Carnet de passages en Duane for motor vehicles to Bahrain residents for touring purposes.

The Carnet (pronounced car-nay) and in some countries it is called trip tic, is valid for 12 months from the date of issue and saves time, effort and expense.

It allows visitors to temporarily import their vehicles for a limited period of time with a minimum of formalities and without the need to make a cash deposit at the frontier in local currency, equivalent to the Customs Duty and other taxes' currency.

A Carnet is essential for the temporary importation of vehicles into most African, Asian, Middle East, New Zealand and South American countries.

Required documents when applying for CPD:

1. Copy of CPR.
2. Copy of Passport.
3 Copy of VISA for Non - Bahraini
