Just confirming that nothing has changed.
1. Check with your airline how they handle your rifles at Jo'burg. Some take them direct to the SAPS office, others expect you to identify them in the luggage carousel are before they take them to the SAPS office.
2. The SAPS office is still where it always was (A1 on the left as you pass the last "security" guy). If you come in at A2 to have to go to A1 and walk towards the arrival area. Sign now up for SAPS office.
3. All you need is a completed SAPS520 form. Don't sign it until asked to. Original passport, Firearms Certificate, flight ticket and letter of invitation from your outfitter. I provide copies attached to my SAPS520.
4. Be bold and loud. Junior PC on the right will start the process, hand off to the Sergeant to his right who inputs into the computer and then hands off to the Inspector who hand fills your temporary permit. All in all a 30 minute process.
Time from plane touching down to leaving the airport carpark was 50 minutes.
