Passing Through Customs

All persons arriving or leaving Botswana are required to unreservedly declare all goods in their possession to a Customs official on duty on a baggage declaration document called Form J.

The BURS has a duty to protect Botswana from importation of illicit goods. To do this, checks may be made on travelers and their baggage. If you are stopped and your baggage checked, please co-operate, as we do not assume that you have done anything wrong. We pledge to treat you courteously and professionally.
