The short answer to that question is that it depends on the situation. But it’s not anything to worry about.
There’s a workaround that makes it possible to order from B&H and have the package shipped to South Africa. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the B&H Online Store to South Africa
To receive international shipments from B&H, you’ll need to have a physical U.S. address.
This address is where you’ll get the packages shipped to.
I’m sure the question you have now is, “how can I get a physical U.S. address if I don’t live there?”
Fear not, as we have an answer to that!
Within the United States, there are several companies known as Freight Forwarders, whose intent is to help with international shipping.
These companies will give you an address in the United States to use for receiving packages.
With an account from a Freight Forwarder company and the U.S. based address, you can manage your international shipments.
From the given address, you can send and then ship your order from B&H, or any United States company.
MyUS is one of the best freight forwarders available – and it’s our favorite.
Why do we think MyUS is the best? It’s because they’re reliable, don’t charge a bunch of taxes, and offer affordable rates.
We’ve worked with MyUS several times, and have shipped multiple packages using their service.
You can order from any US-based company and have that company ship your order to your MyUS address. It doesn’t matter that you actually live in South Africa or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.

The process is really simple. When you’re filling in the delivery details on your online order, you’ll enter the address given to you by your Freight Forwarder.
Once your Freight Forwarder receives your package, they’ll box it up with any other orders that they may have for you and send them to your address in South Africa.
With MyUS, your B&H order could be with you in no time!
