The procedure consists of 46 Step by Step requirements that Tranz Vanz Pty Ltd will walk the client through.  If the client adheres to these steps, the movement of their R.V. should be trouble free.

The Tranz Vanz check list is designed to cover all aspects so the client should not be subjected to any extra costs by diversion.  The onus will be back on the R.V. Owner, if they falter from our check list and if extra costs occur, they will be easily identifiable as their error and liability.




Australian and New Zealand are signatories to an Internationally recognised Document, “Carnet de Passage en Douane” (CPD) Carnet, which basically is a passport for your R.V. including tow vehicle for a Caravan.


At the Country of Origin, the CPD Carnet is raised and covers the Vehicle for a period of up to 12 months from the date of issue.  The CPD Carnet provides the respective country of Import, a guarantee for the payment of Duty and Goods and Service Tax (GST), should the vehicle not be exported within the specified temporary importation period.  A CPD Carnet is valid for 12 Months from the date of issue.


The CPD Carnet associated Bond for the value of the equivalent of the GST and Duty (if applicable) can be secured by:

Cash Bond

Bankers Letter of Indemnity

Insurance Policy


The security is refunded/released after the CPD Carnet is returned to the issuing Organisation.


Once the Security is issued, the client will confirm this to ourselves and we will confirm the advance dated vessel booking to New Zealand or Australia.


At this point, our 46 step by step check list will activate including close contact between the client and TRANZ VANZ to ensure all of the procedures have been completed.
