Entering South Africa without Carnet
We are entering South Africa fairly soon with our Oz registered vehicle.
Is it possible to enter South Africa without a carnet? Can you complete a temporary import permit at the border?
We will actually import the vehicle into SA once we get there, but I'm trying to avoid using my Oz carnet to enter because of some stupid Oz rules (our rego expires soon and the carnet is not valid without current rego etc - to get a new rego we need a road worthy certificate and checklist with loads of other sh1t!!!!
- try getting that from an African goverment office without spending weeks there!)
So, is it possible to enter SA without a carnet?
Also, is it possible to complete paperwork at the border to show that I will be importing the car permanently, therefore not having to use a carnet??
