Lesotho Customs and Equipment
If you are going into Lesotho from South Africa, the process is a simple one. You are required to submit a document detailing each piece of equipment, its value and serial numbers. Similar to the ATA Carnet document. VAT is paid to the Lesotho Revenue Authority and refundable when you exit Lesotho.
If you are planning on bringing equipment into Lesotho from anywhere else, the formal ATA Carnet process must be followed.
Film Fixers have established relationships at most points of entry that manage the situation where both parties benefit.
Specialised gear (camera, sound and lighting) is not available for hire in Lesotho. Luckily, neighbouring South Africa has a number of gear hire places to select from. Film Fixers has a great relationship with these companies and will happily help you secure your equipment through them.
