Shipping and Removals in Cape Town

Many reputable companies offer shipping and removal services to Cape Town. Costs depend on volume and the length of time involved in shipping.

Air freight is quick but expensive, while shipping by sea is slow but cheaper. Some expats compromise by transporting essentials by air and less essential, bulkier items by sea.


Shipping pets to Cape Town

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 as a matter of course.
