Temporary Import Permit South Africa
We're travelling overland from the UK to South Africa next year. We're South Africans, but the vehicle we're borrowing is UK-registered. We have two options i.t.o. carnets:
* The RAC in the UK
. Can issue for all the countries, but 800%
deposit required for Egypt.
* The AA in South Africa
. Can issue for all countries, excluding South Africa (since we're South African residents). Only 200%
deposit required for Egypt carnet, so it's the preferred choice.
Only problem is - we will be without a carnet for South Africa... What will be the procedure/requirements at the border post (Vioolsdrift - Nam/SA)? Will we be able to get a Temporary Import Permit upon arrival or will we need to pay full import duty?
Also, what's the cost of these type of TIP's?
PS: we're not planning on importing the vehicle permanently - the original owner is planning on driving it back to the UK.
Thanks for reading,
