Question costs/time to get South African carnet

Does anyone know how much it costs to get a carnet through the South African automobile association (or whatever they call it), and how long the process takes? By cost I mean just the paperwork fees... not the deposit for the bike. Thanks.

Errr... You mean your in SA and want a carnet for another country?

Think the 'fees' would be on par with doing the same in Mexico..

You could try emailing them ... they have a web site somewheres...

that's right, I'm referring to getting a carnet for a South African bike for travel to other African countries.

Hi Sohrakoff,

if I rember right, the carnet is 1600 ZAR (7,15 ZAR = 1 USD)

But you also must deposit the value of the bike. Off course you should name it on a low value. If the value is named with 10000 ZAR you have to pay a 10000 ZAR deposit.

But I would not take a carnet for a south african bike. You dont need one up to Zamiba and Mozamibque. And for Tanzania and Kenya I would take a chance.

The South African automobile association is called AA.

I can organize you contact details if need some.

regards

Thomas

I know this thread is for sub saharan. But I am looking at buying a motorbike in South Africa to Travel all the way to London. Is a SA carnet reccomended in this situation. We haven't decided on an east or west route yet. I hear that Egypt is very strict.

Any info much appreciated
