Carnet Categories In South Africa
ATA Carnets are available for temporary export to South Africa. They are valid for 12 months and cover professional equipment, trade samples, or items to be shown at exhibitions, or fairs.
Although for Northern Ireland, the video highlights opportunities for all British companies in South Africa. Britain remains a respected source for goods and services, with the ATA carnet system useful for visits there, alongside neighbouring areas.
Carnets Cover The Region
South African membership of the ATA carnet family is on behalf of the entire common customs area in their region.
Your carnet will be valid for The Republics of Botswana and Namibia, also the Kingdoms of Lesotho and Swaziland. Useful if you intend to visit other states on your business trip.
Operational Points To Note
South African ATA carnets are not valid for postal goods. In other ways, they are quite flexible, replacements for lost carnets are allowed and extensions can be arranged.
If a representative, or exporter is overseeing the movement of goods for you, or travelling on your behalf, a signed letter of authorisation will be required by customs.
Meeting Local Regulations
As with any country, holding an ATA carnet does not remove the need to meet licensing controls. A restricted goods guide is available from the South African Revenue Service.
Complying with personal customs needs also makes sense. Details are available of personal customs allowances and procedures.
For any point on ATA carnets and customs, Dynamic Dox staff are here to advise. Aspects such as meeting local regulations, replacements, or extensions may seem a bind but we are used to them and simply wish to help you have a good trip.
Enjoying Your Time In South Africa
Although business may be your reason to visit, South Africa is a fascinating place to see. A country of incredible diversity.
Alongside commercial purposes, the wildlife and scenery are enthralling. You can dance the night away in a traditional South African Boma, or just enjoy great local food.
Along with being a fine place to carry out business, the ability to use an ATA carnet in South Africa is a plus. If you would like the process professionally managed, you can talk to our support team whenever you wish.
