This measure will apply even though those motor vehicles may have been shipped prior to 31 December 2020;
  • the expiry date of all Import Licences issued in 2020 shall be 31 December 2020; and
  • the TLU shall not be revalidating Import Licences issued in 2020 to a date in 2021 for used right hand drive private motor vehicles (sedans, station wagons and Sports Utility Vehicles) arriving after 31 December 2020
