“Duty” is the tax you pay for bringing a product across international borders. If you buy something “duty free,” it means you’re not paying taxes on it in the country where you purchased the item.

How expensive is it to shop at Johannesburg Airport?

This depends entirely on what you are shopping for. In theory, prices on duty free items should be lower than those charged at premium stores and this is part of the appeal of shopping at the airport.

As you proceed through the airport check points, you will be expected to declare any items that carry a duty or tax and will be required to pay the duties and value added tax (VAT) on those items. The cost of which will be determined according to the value of the items. Duty free items include personal effects, sporting and recreational equipment, new or used, imported either as accompanied or unaccompanied baggage, for your own use during your stay.
