SOUTH AFRICAN WORK PERMIT – TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN
Posted on 15th January 2016 at 10:11
As of today – 1 June 2015 – those travelling to / from South Africa with children under the age of 18 will be asked to show a number of documents, such as an unabridged birth certificate, for each travelling child.
The new rule comes from the South African Department of Home Affairs who originally tried to implement the requirement in late 2014. However, this was postponed to allow accurate and timely communication to South African missions abroad and give parents more time to obtain the correct documentation.
