Today I have some sad news. Customs & Exports today informed me that no new shipments could leave the country until such time as I acquired an export license to ship overseas. I have been exporting for many years with no problem at all but this is an unforeseen by-law and I have no choice but to comply. Unfortunately it takes up to 2 weeks for the application to be approved and until such time I am not allowed to ship any parcels outside the country.
I have spent most of the day trying to find a solution with the various authorities but to no avail, so I have no choice but to close the shop as I am unable to fulfill any orders. Please accept my deepest apologies, I am very distressed about this, but there is nothing I can do.
The digital store will remain open as usual and I hope that we will soon be open again for business. Customers who have placed orders in the last few days will be contacted individually – if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me by email.
