i'm currently based in london and am relocating to southern cape next year. does anyone know the current guidelines/law re importing airguns (specifically walther cp88 comp, .177) into south africa?
Shouldn't be any problems as long as they under .22 cal. Have a copy of the Fire-arms Control Act (FCA) with you just in case. Well thats what police told me when I looked at bring in airguns & black powder rifles last year. There may be some customs duties but not sure about that. Might be easiest to courier them instead?
You shouldnt have to pay anything if its a personal item and you are coming to live in SA. ITs only us poor sods who want to bring stuff when we come back that get stung. You paid Tax on it in the UK so you shouldnt pay. You just have tp go through the Firearms routine at both airports. I was in and out at JHB Int in 3 minutes.
Hi Guys, I have been looking for some definitive answers on the forum and this is a close as I get. Is there any form of import certificate prior to leaving. I was going to ensure it was well within a well padded shipping crate and listed in the inventory as .177 pellet rifle. The thought of having it on my person coming through borders via air makes the hairs stand up on my back!
Any ideas or warnings on 'theft out of containers/shipping'?
