Shipping and Removals in Johannesburg
There are numerous companies offering removal services and shipping to Johannesburg. Costs vary according to the volume of goods and the specified length of time involved in shipping. Air freight is fast but expensive.
Some expats compromise by transporting essentials by air and less essential, bulkier items by sea. Customs clearance time is hard to predict and may delay shipments even further. Note that left-hand vehicles cannot be imported into the country.
Shipping pets to Johannesburg
To ship pets to South Africa, a valid import permit and veterinary health certificate will need to be presented. Dogs and cats must be vaccinated against rabies and be implanted with a microchip.
Pets will be quarantined if the required documentation cannot be presented to the authorities. They will then only be released once the documentation has been received. In addition, dogs from certain countries are subject to a standard quarantine of 14 days as a matter of course.
