    Hi Jeff, yes a consent application does have to be submitted and approved when transiting through the Netherlands with firearms/ammunition. It normally takes about a week or so but I always recommend submitting it 4-6 weeks in advance of your trip. Hope this helps!

    So, my gf and I are going to SA in June 2019. When applying for Canadian EXCOL numbers, should I put both firearms under my name, or submit us both separately? Both firearms will be in the same case...will this pose any issues at any of the places that may, or will, want to look at our firearms, like Frankfurt, J'burg, etc.? Thanks.

    Strictly, you should each have your own permit. They are free.
    The RSA permit is also free.

    You could certainly get away with one permit if you are always hunting together. No one at EXCOL or Frankfurt will care, as long as someone has the proper export permits.

    It is always the technicalities that are the trip up.
    eg. Your SAPS 520 is your "license" to carry firearms in RSA. You happen to be hunting separately between two properties and only one person has a permit!

    Ok, we'll each get our own permit. Thanks for your help, Brickburn, much appreciated.

    It is the safest thing to do. I like having the peace of mind when I cross a border.
    There are plenty of people that operate with one permit.
    I hope you have a great trip.

    We're really looking forward to hunting with KMG Safaris. You can expect a full report/article once we are home. I'm not sure if we'll be able to report as we go, but we'll see what happens.
