New Arrival Proceedure SA Customs JHNB

Recommended Posts

As from  28 November 2018  there has been some changes on arrival with  SA Customs.

After you have collected your luggage from the carousel you then proceed to customs.   When going through Customs all suitcases go through a  X-Ray machine . This is causing in some instances  long delays. Passengers  are missing their connecting flights to other centers.

On Friday last week there were a lot of disgruntled passengers trying to get through the process.

also make sure you read the new information booklet from SARS : http://www.sars.gov.za/ClientSegments/Customs-Excise/Travellers/Pages/Arrival-in-SA.aspx

http://www.sars.gov.za/AllDocs/OpsDocs/Guides/Customs-G001 - Travellers Guide new - External Guide.pdf     although they say only some bags may be X-rayed they were making all passengers go through the X- ray process.

With this new procedure, it appears when planning connecting flights from Johannesburg allow for extra time or take a later flight.   The current  45 minute to 1 hour window period between flights looks like its going to be a challenge.
