Travelling with children

January 1, 2016

All children entering or exiting South Africa are required to travel with an unabridged birth certificate, containing particulars of both biological parents. This applies even when both parents are travelling, and to all nationalities. When only one parent or a guardian is present, additional documentation is required.

An easy way to check is the Child Checklist App. By selecting the category that applies to you, a list of the documents needed will be shown.
