As a result of its market access offer for the Uruguay Round, South Africa has significantly reduced its number of tariff lines and bound most to World Trade Organization binding levels. Duty rates range from zero to 30% with a few exceptions- notably in clothing and textiles and motor industry products. The general trend has been for tariffs to be reduced to encourage industries to become more competitive and also to reduce cost structures.
Duties on unsolicited gifts entering South Africa consigned by individuals in South Africa can be fully rebated as long as:
1. The importer does not receive more than two parcels per calendar year; and
2. The value of each parcel does not exceed R400. This rule excludes goods that are contained in passengers' baggage, wine, spirits and manufactured tobacco (including cigarettes and cigars).
