    Moving to South Africa

    With your moving options varying from air to sea, it’s important to ensure that your affordability is met with the best solution. We provide you with a comprehensive quote on travel as well as door-to-door services to South Africa. As an accredited moving and relocation company with decades of experience as international movers, we will advise you on the best solution that suits your relocation needs and requirements. 

    It’s important to note that you will need to be present in South Africa for at least 10 days in order for customs clearance to take place on the shipment of removal goods. You will also need to obtain an import permit and have a full inventory with values listed for any household items, new furniture, souvenirs and other similar items. 

    Additionally, the movement of cats, dogs and birds to South Africa will require a quarantine period, a rabies vaccination certification, health certificate and import permit. There is a prohibition on certain items, including "walkie-talkie" radios and certain furs, skins, feathers and other animal items which fall under the protected species regulations. 

    One of our expert and knowledgeable move coordinators will be assigned to you to help you through this process and the steps involved. You can learn more about the FIDI customs regulations for South Africa here.

    Moving from South Africa

    There are a number of factors to consider when choosing an international moving company. Some of these include whether they are accredited, provide end-to-end services, offer insurance advice on your move, have a good reputation and have experience in customs clearance to the countries they provide relocation services to.

    As recognised international movers, GAC is ideally placed to help make your move from South Africa as seamless as possible.
