Extending a carnet in South Africa
Slightly different question than a recent post regarding extending a carnet in the SACU:
I finished an overland trip a few months ago and want to sell a UK-registered vehicle in South Africa to an overlander who 1) wishes to keep it UK-registered, 2) wants to take over the carnet by way of a one-year extension through RAC. (It is currently in storage in Cape Town; I am no longer in South Africa.)
However, I am running out of time to sell the vehicle on the current carnet because it expires in January 2013. We have had to drop the price accordingly. I have heard that it is possible to remotely obtain a 3-month extension for the vehicle to remain in South Africa. I suppose this would entail extending the carnet for three months.
Does anyone know how to go about doing this? Thanks so much for any help.
