US to South Africa shipping restrictions
Every country has certain shipping restrictions for all the right reasons. Some prohibited items cannot enter the border of a specific country for being harmful in one way or another. Products with controversial ingredients such as lithium in batteries and some cosmetics with lead are forbidden to be imported into certain countries. Additionally, some countries prohibit the import of products and items which could pose a concern for their economy and people.
However some items might not be strictly banned or may be allowed at other times, hence we’ll let you know about the changing policies while shipping from US to South Africa.
Our courier collaborators also have some shipment boundaries according to the nature of the items, USA export laws, and South African import laws; you can further look into them. Some prohibited items include stolen property or items obtained through illegal means, hazardous electronic waste (e-waste), unlawful telecommunication equipment and devices, fake or imitation goods, including clothing, handbags, and watches, certain medications and prescription drugs that are not approved for use in South Africa, etc.
