Title: Carnet/TIP for South Africa
Post by: Johan10 on September 18, 2019, 01:03:05 pm
Hello dogs,

I am hoping someone can give me some information...

Me and 4 friends are riding from Cairo to Cape Town at the end of the year.

I am currently living in Australia (working visa) and will be sending my Australian bought and registered bike to Cairo and then back to Australia from Cape Town.

I have hit a snag with the Carnet for the bike.

Because I am still a South African resident, the Carnet can not be used to temporarily import the motorcycle into South Africa. The internet is not being much help as most scenarios assume that a vehicle will be imported with the purpose of staying in South Africa. Will I be able to get a TIP at the border and then hand that back once the bike gets shipped back to Australia? Or will I have to go through a longer process that I am not seeing?

Thanks!
J

Howzit,

Unfortunately don't have the info you need, try calling the SA AA 0861 000 234 the lady I spoke to was quote informative on Carnet.
My girlfriend and I will be heading up from Cape Town to Cairo staring in Jan, would be rad to bump into each other along the way. Cheers Theo
