Rules and Regulations

In line with international trends, South Africa's Firearms Control, Act 2000 has been implemented in its entirety. Applications for Multiple Import or Export Permits / temporary Import of Export Permits / In transit permits for personal use can be made prior to your arrival in South Africa and be ready and waiting at your airport of arrival. 

To obtain these permits on your behalf we need to clarify in short the following: 
1. You can temporarily import a maximum of four firearms per hunter but not more than one of the same calibre. 
2. You may only bring ammunition applicable to the firearms that you will be carrying. 
3. No person under the age of 21 may bring firearms into South Africa or apply for a temporary import permit in his / her name. 
4. The barrel, frame or action is to be marked with the same serial number. 
5. Semi automatic shotguns for bird shooting or a customs made handgun can be bought into South Africa for hunting purposes only. 
6. No self protection firearms allowed. 
7. In transit permits are required by any passenger spending the night in South Africa while in transit to a third country. The same pre- requisites apply as to obtain the normal temporary import permit. A fee is no longer payable for this permit as from 28th November 2005.
