Border posts

The task of managing South Africa’s Ports of Entry is anything but simple, and, as a result, the South African government has been proactive in ensuring that the local population is protected against illegal and harmful products/people entering the country.

To find out more  about a particular border post or about Other Government Agencies’ requirements (e.g. visas or passport requirements from the Department of Home Affairs), you can make use of the following:

  • Call SARS on 0800 007277, Department of Home Affairs on 0800 601190 or SAPS on 08600 10111
  • SMS facility on 083 709 9444. Text the word “border” followed by space and the name of the specific border gate. e.g. SMS “border” (SPACE) “Lebombo”.
