South African customs authorities require that goods are cleared on a P.1.160. and also a DA304, returning residents to South Africa require a certified "Returning Resident Affidavit" and also a copy of passport.

Immigrants that are shipping personal effects to South Africa are required to produce their passports and residence, work permit.
