Movement of Horses
AFRICAN HORSE SICKNESS – UPDATES, NEWS AND POLICIES WILL BE POSTED HERE
MOVEMENT PERMIT APPLICATIONS ETC – NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please find the most recent updated form for movement applications for permits into the AHS controlled area. Not much has changed, just formatting really and one or two field (such as date of departure has been added)
Please also note the change of email address for ALL applications into the controlled area, no matter where in the infected area (rest of RSA) you or your clients are, and no matter which state vet covers your area.
Please note that one of the application form must have been submitted before a health certificate for movement has been performed. If your client has submitted it themselves, please check with either myself or Danielle Pienaar that the application has been received and is being dealt with if you have not already received the State vet permit (which we will send you directly).
Also attached is a handy diagramme to help clients with the requirements for movement into the controlled area and the process to follow.

DOCUMENTS FOR MOVEMENT
PLEASE NOTE 2 OCTOBER 2017:
Horse Movements to the Controlled Area in the W. Cape : The Permit Offices for Movement Permits for horses moving into the controlled area are open for permit applications from 8am to 5pm, Monday-Friday. For medical emergency permits please contact 076 152 2782 or 083 642 0610.
Please be advised that movement permit applications received less than 48 hrs prior to movement are not likely to be processed in time for movement. Applications 24 hrs or less prior to movement will not be issued.
Permit application does not guarantee a permit being issued. If the horse does not comply with the requirements for movement then a permit will not be issued.
Please take further note that incomplete applications or applications that are not on the correct form cannot be processed. Submission of incomplete forms will delay a permit being issued.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT IT IS A REQUIREMENT THAT THE ID PAGE OF THE PASSPORT IS SUBMITTED TOGETHER WITH THE APPLICATION FORM
Please also note that any application that is sent via whatsapp or sms without also being sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address will not be processed. We only accept applications sent to the official address. Please don’t send to any personal email address as you may end up not getting a permit.
