UPDATE FROM THE TRAVEL OFFICE WITH REGARDS TO THE NEW REGULATIONS FOR TRAVELLING TO OR THROUGH SOUTH AFRICA WITH CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18:

 

Where both parents are travelling with a child who is under 18

  • All parents travelling with children under the age of 18 to or from South Africa must produce an unabridged birth certificate of each child which shows details of the parents of the child.


Where one parent is travelling with a child, they must produce:

  • an unabridged birth certificate 
  • consent in the form of an affidavit from the other parent registered as a parent on the birth certificate, authorising them to enter or depart from South Africa with the child a court order granting them full parental responsibilities and rights or legal guardianship or where applicable, a death certificate of the other parent registered as a parent of the child on the birth certificate


Where an adult is travelling with a child, who is not their biological child, they must produce:

  • a copy of the unabridged birth certificate of the child
  • an affidavit from the parents or legal guardian of the child confirming that they have permission to travel with the child
  • copies of the identity documents or passports of the parents or legal guardian of the child

Children travelling alone must produce:

  • consent from one or both of the parents/legal guardian in the form of a letter or affidavit, for the child to travel into or depart from South Africa. If only one parent is able to provide proof of consent they must also have a copy of a court order granting the full parental responsibilities
  • a letter from the person who is to receive the child in South Africa, containing their residential address and the contact details where the child will be residing
  • a copy of the identity document or valid passport and visa or permanent residence permit of the person who is to receive the child in South Africa
  • contact details of the parents or legal guardian of the child
