Sending Parcels to South Africa

Bonafide unsolicited free gifts or not more than two parcels per calendar year and of which the value per parcel does not exceed R400.00 may be sent by a person abroad to a person in South Africa.

The only form required to be completed by the sender of the parcel is the prescribed label obtained from any Post Office.  An indication as to the value must be furnished and the label should be marked unsolicited free gift if such is the case.

No import permit is required if the free on board value does not exceed R400.00. A nominal fee is levied by the South African Post Office.
