SOUTH AFRICA – New Requirements for Parents Travelling with Children

Effective 1 June 2015, parents or legal guardians travelling to or from South Africa with their child will have to produce the child’s unabridged birth certificate(s) along with other relevant documents. This change has been much anticipated over the past months and is being implemented to reduce human trafficking.

Without the required documents, airlines may not allow a child to board flights into or out of South Africa, and immigration officials at the border of South Africa might refuse to allow a child to enter or depart from South Africa.
