Temporary Import of Firearms into South Africa
Visitors coming to South African and bringing their rifles for hunting, will need to fill in a SAP520-Temporary Import Application, which can be downloaded from the SAPS website or from PHASA
The following must accompany your SAP520 form:
- Passport Copy
- Itinerary Copy
- Proof of ownership of your rifle, form 4457 available from your local customs office.
- Proof of export (obtained at the airport upon departure of US)
- Invitation letter from us, your hunting outfitter
If you would like assistance through customs, we recommend the following companies which you can choose from:
- Air 2000
- Rifle Permits
Most popular rifle calibers for your hunt: .270,.308, .7 mm, .30.06, .300win. Mags and on Big Game minimum .375 and bigger. If you will be hiring a rifle from us, make sure that you practice with a friends rifle so that you are comfortable with the trigger feel of different calibres.
Ammunition: Please pack your ammunition in a lockable case which can be checked in with your firearm to avoid possible delays during checked luggage screening on your flight. Please do not pack your ammunition inside your gun case. Also make sure about the maximum permitted amount of ammunication.
Will you be travelling with your minors under the age of 18?
If yes, please be informed of the new laws traveling with children. All minors under the age of 18 need an unabridged birth certificate (both parents names appear on the birth certificate) to enter South Africa.
If child is traveling with only 1 parent, the absent parent needs to send a signed affidavit giving permission for the child to travel with the other parent.
If both parents are absent, both must sign affidavits giving permission and ID Documents for the child to travel with the adult that has been given permission to.
While ensuring all reasonable care and maintaining precautions for the safety of clients, Battle Creek Safari’s accepts no responsibility for any illness, accident or loss arising from any cause whatsoever.
We strongly recommend an all-over insurance policy prior to your arrival in South Africa.
Please make sure that you have full medical insurance that covers in South Africa.
Make sure to pack your membership card.
