Transkei permit?
« on: February 11, 2013, 01:08:35 pm »
Some help for a noob please

I remember reading somewhere that you need a permit to park anywhere close to the beach in the transkei...
is this true and where can you get one?

Yes it's true icstuff - bongeka.mvakade@deaet.ecape.gov.za - she will help you if you are going anywhere north of Mpame; south of Mpame you have to deal with the DEAET in East London - Anet.Landman@deaet.ecape.gov.za; you must have a valid fishing licence, drivers licence, ID and map with all the relevant points marked on it to submit to them with your application.  I think you also have to submit the logbook of your car, but not 100% sure of that.  Without a permit you may only drive to your place of residence.  Tel number for the Umata office: 047 531 1191

When I applied for mine which was granted the same day I only gave them the description of the area.You can phone them in East London @ 0437074000 or email ricky.hannan@deaet.ecape.gov.za. I was stopped at the wreck and all they checked was the permit.

Thanks Mudcrab - I couldn't remember Ricky's name - he is very helpful - all the documentation is a new thing - the maps especially - we had to submit them for our last compo which we fished at Grosvernor - maybe the EL branch is more user friendly  :-)

Probably one of the easiest government related permits to get. They really don't mess you around at all which is a nice change

Yip same here, no ID, drivers licence etc. Just vehicle registration and details, and where you'll be fishing  :corrct:

Send an email to:


Bongeka Mvakade <bongeka.mvakade@dedea.gov.za>


and request the application form.


Send back the form with copies of your ID, fishing licence and a map of the area you will be driving.

A fish in the water is worth more than two in the hand.
