Imports and exports are goods arriving in and leaving the country. Before any goods can be imported or exported to another country, a number of things need to be in place. If you want to perform any customs related activities, the SARS may require that you register with them and/or obtain a license importers or exporters licence.
In order for SARS customs to ensure compliance with national legislation, an importer must declare to customs what they have brought into the country, the mode of transport and value. If goods arrive in the country via the post, a different process is followed.
