Argentina Temporary Entry

Postby qszheng_forum » Mon Nov 17, 2008 1:38 pm

The basic framework for temporary entry is established by Decree 1330/04 published on October 1, 2004 in the "Gazeta Oficial" (equivalent to the US Federal Register). This Decree explains the conditions and terms that the importer must comply with to bring in products usually for a period of 360 days from the date of the release by the GOA customs authority. On October 23, 2006, the GOA issued Sicpme Resolution 392/06 modifying some aspects of the above Decree on conditions for temporary imports. Further minor modifications were issued on November 15, 2007 through Decree 1622/2007. Further modifications were introduced through MEP Disposition 5/2008, primarily applicable to small and medium-sized businesses engaging in the provision of services for updating, modifiying, or changing products temporarily imported under the above named Decree Law. Additional documentation and authentifying processes are introduced by the Disposition 5/2008.

Personal working elements such as laptop computers or other tools can be registered at the time of entry and again on departure from Argentina. Samples brought into the country by a traveling salesperson are admitted free of duty provided they have no commercial value.

Argentina is not a party to the A.T.A. (Temporary Admission) Carnet program for International Business to import goods, display booths, and literature for display in local trade shows for subsequent re-export. The Argentine Temporary Admission Regime (TAR) allows duty free admission of goods such as commercial samples, packaging, pallets, containers, and goods for exhibit. These items must be re-exported within the timeframe stipulated by Customs on entering the country. Many trade show organizers are able to obtain a special waiver from the Argentine government on a case-by-case basis.

Under the temporary admission regime, exporters are entitled to import, free of tariffs and other duties, inputs or materials used to produce export goods, including accessory items of normal commercial practice (e.g. containers and packaging) to the extent that the goods are exported. Goods that are imported under this regime may remain in the country for one year (extendable to two years) in the case of common goods, and two years (extendable to three years) in the case of mass produced goods. A further 12-month extension may be granted in exceptional cases (e.g. in the event of an agricultural emergency, fire, and so forth).

On November 25, 2002, the GOA published Resolucion 23/02 in the "Boletin Oficial" -- equivalent to the Federal Register in the U.S. -- applying fees for services provided on each drawback and temporary entry transactions.
