The 2018 hunting season is in full swing and we have already assisted numerous clients, successfully assisting them with importing their hunting rifles into South Africa.Â Contact us as soon as possible if you are still on your way to South Africa with hunting rifles. We need all the necessary rifle permit paperwork at least 25 days prior to arrival.
If you are travelling with rifles where the serial number on the barrel differs from the serial number on the frame/receiver, you need to ensure that both serial numbers are listed on page 5 of the SAPS520 form as well as on the firearm license or registration form, or for US hunters, the CBP4457 customs form, this is very important!
If you have domestic or internal flights in South Africa, please note that only South African Airways, SA Airlink and SA Express can carry firearms.Â Please ensure that you are not booked on one of the other low-cost airlines as they cannot transport firearms. Contact us if you are unsure.Â We will always suggest that you make use of an experienced travel agent in your area; there are travel agents that specialise in Africa travel and we will highly recommend that you make use of someone.
The rules and regulations change all the time so, rather ensure you have someone with the necessary expertise on your side!
