Permit Times

Postby Psychogav » Mon Apr 18, 2011 8:14 pm

Once again I would like to send a snake from JHB to the Cape, but everytime I do it the export permit takes between 15 and 22 days. Anyone who has ever waited to receive a snake knows this is far tooooo long (The anticipation could kill a person) Does anyone know how I can speed up this process?

I know that with the transport permits there is a express side you can choose.

It is abit more pricey but its worth it.

Express is only for Western- and maybe Eastern Cape people. It is double price and takes 3 days instead of 10 -15. You will have to wait for them in Gauteng.

Eastern Cape permits don't cost anything. We get transport permits quite quickly (I can get it within one day if needed) but housing permits can take quite a while...

Waiting for import permits from Northern Cape and after several enquiries North Western cape still have not come back to me about an export permit. So I'm also still waiting :(

How much do you pay for the housing permit?

There is currently no cost for permits in the Eastern Cape.

I remember in times gone by there was a permit office for "Transvaal". They covered all the lodges, game farms, bird, cycad and reptile keepers and all the zoos for the entire province (and parts of Namibia). There were 5 people working there. They issued CITES permits as well as normal permits. It cost nothing and you could get permits within a day.

Now they have many more permit officers, no hunting in Gauteng to speak of, very few lodges and zoos and it still takes 6 weeks for a permit which costs you a whole bunch of money. Somewhere effectiveness took a dive!
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
