IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE IMPORT OF FIREARMS, HUNTING PERMITS AND THE EXPORT OF TROPHIES

HUNTING PERMITS

Always make sure that any hunting permit is signed by all relevant parties the permit is not legal without signatures. It is advised, if possible, to have the hunting permit before you commence with the safari. We all know in practice that this is not always possible. Hunting any animal without the required hunting permit is illegal and may result in having your client’s trophies confiscated and you may lose your permit to guide safaris.

EXPORT PERMITS

We take all the required documentation, make photocopies and sent the documentation to the shipping company from where they process the documentation and apply for the export permits. The shipping company of your choice works with nature conservation on a daily basis and a status report of the export permits of the clients is sent to swift dip on a daily basis.
