Export of goods to South Africa

ETK exports goods to South Africa from any city in the Russian Federation.

The main feature of any export delivery is the application and confirmation of the zero rate of VAT. After a foreign trade transaction, you will need to prepare a set of documents and a tax return, after which the tax office will conduct a desk audit.

The next important feature is the issuing of permits. Depending on the nomenclature of the goods supplied, additional documents may be required:

  • A phytosanitary or veterinary certificate;
  • Expert conclusion that the goods are not subject to export control;
  • Export authorization from various agencies (e.g., authorization from the Federal Service for Technical and Export Control).

To export foodstuffs, either a phytosanitary or veterinary certificate will clearly be required, while for equipment, in 80% of cases an expert opinion will have to be obtained that the goods are not subject to export control.

So, in order to successfully conduct and complete an export transaction to South Africa, you need to draw up a legally correct contract with all the supporting documents, record the transaction in the books of your company and confirm the zero rate of VAT.

Delivery to South Africa:

South Africa is located at the southernmost point of Africa. Consequently, the best way to transport cargo from Russia to South Africa is by sea. It will take at least 35 days to cover the distance from the Russian ports of St. Petersburg, Ust-Luga, Novorossiysk or Vladivostok to the South African ports of Cape Town, Durban or Port Elizabeth. Please note that for consolidated shipments the delivery time is increased by the time required for cargo consolidation.

The best way to ship cargo from Russia to South Africa is by sea.

Shipments from Russia to South Africa are transported in flexible or special FlatRack or OpenTop containers ranging in length from 20 to 45 feet. Special containers are used to transport non-standard goods.

Export of goods from Russia to South Africa by air.

Air freight is usually used for urgent deliveries where cost is not a determining factor. The main thing is the speed of transportation. By air cargo is delivered from St. Petersburg (Pulkovo) and Moscow (Sheremetyevo) to South African airports in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban or Pretoria in just 5 days.
