* SOUTH AFRICA ENTRY REQUIREMENTS *

Clients travelling with children will need to consider new immigration rules. These regulations apply to all travellers on arrival and departure. In the case of countries that do not issue unabridged birth certificates, a letter to this effect issued by the competent authority of the foreign country should be produced. All documents must be original or copies certified as a true copy of the original by a commissioner of oaths, or the equivalent commissioning authority should commissioners of oath not be a practice in the country concerned.


When parents are travelling with their child/children (under 18yrs)  they must produce an unabridged birth certificate of the child/children, reflecting the particulars of the parents of the child/children. If the child/children are adopted, an adoption certificate will also be required. If only one parent is travelling they will also require other supporting documentation. 


Your passport must be valid for at least 30 days beyond the date you expect to leave South Africa. Your passport must contain at least 2 empty visa pages for the necessary South African Temporary Residence Permit. Without it, you will be denied entry into the country.


You may also be denied boarding at the point of departure if you don’t have enough blank pages for the visa. If you plan to visit neighbouring countries and return to South Africa, ensure that there are sufficient visa pages in your passport for those countries’ visas and those of South Africa.
