ITAC Covid-19 communique
As part of the Government’s effort to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, ITAC has put in place additional measures. It is hoped that such measures will assist South Africa during this time of national disaster.
A new regulation has been enacted for the export of essential goods. In this regard, parties wanting to export such goods will find links to the relevant documents in the section entitled “Export Control Regulation relating to Covid-19” below.
Regarding applications, ITAC is receiving a large number of queries and applications. As a result, the processing time for applications varies, but is currently 5-10 days.
Please note that it is imperative that applicants send their import- or export-related questions and documents to the correct ITAC unit using the indicated email addresses (the Tariff Investigations unit for import/Rebate Item 412.11 matters and the Import & Export Control unit for export matters).
Sending queries or documents to the incorrect unit will result in a slower response or processing time.
Fraud alert!! Please note that ITAC does not use agents to accept or process applications and there is no charge for Export permits.
