Departing for your hunting trip to South Africa is exciting, but make sure you’re hunting on the right side of the law. For instance, firearms must bear the manufacturer’s serial number or any other mark by which the firearm can be identified.  This number needs to correspond to the number on the firearm license, firearm registration form, or the CBP4457 US customs form.

Handguns will be allowed into South Africa, but only for hunting purposes. Any foreign visitor wanting to bring a handgun into the country, needs to contact us at least 30 days prior to arrival.

The following is prohibited:

Other firearms:

  • No use of automatic weapons (a weapon, which after it has been discharged, automatically reloads and fires when the trigger is pulled or held in a discharged position).

Should you wish to find out more, please take your time to visit our website and carefully go through all the steps involved in applying for a hunting permit. All this information is of utmost importance in order to secure a trouble-free process. Should your application be incomplete, it will not be successful.
