South Africa ammunition regulations
« on: March 10, 2020, 03:05:57 PM »
Checking with TSA I can pack my ammo and rifles together. But Iím not clear on south africa policy. Some things I see say ammo must be packed separately.  Anyone else from the USA, who has hunted South Africa, what did you do? I was thinking of bringing a small pelican case to stow the ammo. What say you?

I have always packed mine in a lockable container and separate from my rifles.

Ammo has to be separate luggage in a lockable case. Have you done your 520 form for SAPS and S A customs. You need your rifle documented on a current US Customs form 4473. Rifle must be brought to US Customs office. Make an appointment with US Customs. SCI can help you or AfricaSky ($150 fee)
