UPDATE ON TRAVEL TO SA WITH CHILDREN UNDER 18
Unabridged birth certificates to stay for now!
CHECK DETAILS HERE
Sadly the minister of tourism has refused, despite pleas from all sections of the travel industry, to scrap the need for children under the age of 18 to travel with copies of their birth certificates. So this is just a reminder to please ensure that, if you are travelling with children into and out of South Africa, you have FULL (unabridged) birth certificates (reflecting both parents' details too).
It might be safer to travel with both the originals and certified copies as some airlines have been known to refuse the copies and insist on the originals, despite the fact that South African Home Affairs has always made clear that a certified copy is acceptable.
SOUTH AFRICA'S NEW IMMIGRATION ACT
New regulations effective from June 01, 2015 regarding traveling with minors to and from South Africa
Effective travel date from June 01, 2015, regardless of the time of booking all minors under 18 years of age traveling to and from South Africa, have to present additional documents which were not needed until now. These new regulations apply to all travelers, regardless of the nationality.
It is the responsibility of passengers to ensure their children have the correct documentation or risk being denied boarding. The new law will be enforced by airlines and immigration officials across the board (land, sea and air).
For further information, passengers should contact the South African Embassy in their country and visit the South African Home Affairs Department's website, at the link below.
