See what our clients have to say about PHASA obtaining their Temporary Import Permits in advance and the assistance they get on arrival by the Bangy-team!!
Dear Mrs. Du Plooy.
I hope you are doing good, I'm once again approaching you in order to obtain my necessary firearms permits for my annual ZA hunting trip.
You have been an outstanding and reliable service provider and supporter of our hunting spirits, I just can not deviate from my previous satisfactory experiences and to support to your organization.
Mr. Xaver V.
The first year I will be using u guys for the permits, and already glad I do !! You are doing a great job keeping up with the customer, And they all ready want to meet you in person to thanks you ! This alone make me feel at ease with my decision to have give you guys a go !!
I utilised the services of PHASA for the third time, for my recent hunting trip to South Africa.
Due to a baggage problem, we were almost 2 hours late getting out of arrivals. I fully expected the representative to have left the paperwork with the police and retired for the day.
To my surprise, and relief, I walked into the Police Office to find my name on a board being held by a PHASA representative. What a relief it was to see the representative after the baggage hassles.
My rifle was processed in a couple of minutes and we were on our way the the hotel.
Thank you for a great, and reliable service. I will definitely use the service again and recommend it to everyone.
Unfortunately our South African Adventure has now come to an end, and we are all back at home in the UK. We have had the most memorable 8 days, creating experiences and memories that we will carry to the end of our days.
A short note to thank you for your expert guidance through the process of getting our licences (which we kept and we are going to frame!), your endless patience with all my mundane enquiries and your sense of humour! I am sure that I am speaking on behalf of all in the shooting party when I say that we feel confident that, should the occasion arise, we shall be using the PHASA service again.
Safely back at the UK since Sunday and our thoughts have scarcely left our trip to Africa yet. It was an amazing experience and you, along with the folk at PHASA, played a very important part to making it happen.
Thank you ever so much for helping us through the customs process; seeing the hunters waiting in that room and us being able to breeze through with little hassle was a great relief! I am sure that, should we be lucky enough to repeat such an adventure, we shall be using your excellent service again!
My thanks to both Tersia at PHASA and Bangy for the excellent service in obtaining a temporary rifle permit and meeting me at the airport. All went well and I had an excellent hunt with Southern Game (PH: Peter Walker). Very happy to recommend the PHASA service to other hunters coming to RSA.
I have nothing but praise for your service on the firearm permit. It went so smooth that we were out of the airport in no time. I would tell everyone to use it. The time saved is unbelievable.
Your group did an excellent job assisting me through the gun permit process. Everything was in order and it took less than 10 minutes to clear my gun with the police in South Africa. I would definitely recommend your services to any hunter travelling to South Africa. Thank you again for your help.
Thank you for your assistance with the firearm permit in Johannesburg during our recent trip. With the rescheduling of our trip due to the volcano in Iceland, your efficiency and professionalism in obtaining the new permit was very much appreciated. Your efforts gave us peace of mind with regard to the travel with our firearms. Your help in moving our luggage to the hotel was more than we expected.
Additionally, in comparing notes with some of our traveling companions who preferred to make their own arrangements, it seems that they paid more in fees and bribes than we did and did not have the same assurance of "no problems." They are planning on using the PHASA recommendation next trip, as are we. We look forward to working with you again in two years.
Our trip was better than we could have imagined and you helped to make it that way.
Thanks again for your assistance.
C. & J. Holz

This is a mail to express my gratitude and appreciation for what you guys have done for us to expedite the temporary import permits for our clients from Texas and New Mexico.
We decided to follow the PHASA recommended route this time as we experienced hours of delays some time ago with the same clients.
I can honestly say it was a breeze this time around.
All I did was supply you guys with contact details and from then on things worked perfectly. Upon arrival, everything was exactly as explained to me - The clients were suitably impressed!
Thanks guys for something that really worked well.
Many thanks for organising my own and my clients temporary permits for our trip in May, absolutely outstanding service and worth every penny. It made my clients trip more memorable.
Thank you for getting the SA permit and arranging for the meet and greet in Johannesburg, it gives great piece of mind to have this all arranged ahead of time.
Well we're back in Canada now and we had an amazing time in SA. I just wanted to thank you & PHASA for providing an excellent service. We met Marcus as planned in Joberg. He was absolutely outstanding. Very personable & helpful. I'm very happy we used this service and highly recommend this to anyone traveling with firearms
