    To my knowledge there isn't an issue with archery equipment. I hope it all works out well.
    Good luck, good hunting.

    We are trying to get a transit permit to go thru Munich. If I go to the website it does not list Munich and keeps kicking me to Frankfurt. Any suggestions.

    Thankyou @BRICKBURN but the bottom link does not list Munich. This is where the problem lies.

    You have to use some of those hunting skills. :)
    Note the two screen shots in my earlier post and the email addresses.
    One is Federal and the other is local police.

    The "district"/"province":
    oberbayern
    "Bavaria"

    The city:
    Munchen
    Munich

    The last link includes the specific contact relating to weapons.

    The contact for Bavaria is the first on the list.
    Contact them and they can tell you the exact authority to speak to, if they are not the proper administrative authority already.
    Let me know how you get on.

    Well as of today we have gained no ground. I emailed both Bavaria and Frankfurt 3 days ago but no reply. My friend who has a German speaking employee called and was told that they would check and call back. Nope.

    I CANNOT say enough about Mr. X at Jo-burg regarding expediting firearms import and solving problems. Have used him 3 times and will never go to or through Jo-burg without his assistance. Once, in my ignorance, I booked my own flights through Jo-burg and was about to be transferred from SAA onto a flight by a carrier who does not carry firearms. Mr. X intervened and got us flights on SAA that left 15 minutes later for less than $50 per passenger. Saved us several $100!! Another year, we flew into Jo-Burg and stayed at Afton House (a lovely place). Because we interrupted our flights with an overnight stay, the 2 bags each we were allowed from JFK were not allowed on the flight to Port Elizabeth. The extra bags were $250!! Each!! Mr. X intervened and got our bags on the next flight for $25 each and $10 for the SSA rep. You can use Mr. X without staying at Afton and it is money VERY well spent. Mr. X: From the US, dial 011 (the US exit Code) then 27 (the South Africa access code) then 76-106-3359. Remember it is 6+ hours later there.
