New documentation required for minors traveling to or from South Africa

Delta Airlines - important information
New Documentation Requirements for All Minors Traveling to or from South Africa


(May 12, 2015) - Effective June 1, 2015, the South African government will enforce new documentation requirements for all children under the age of 18 when traveling to or from South Africa. Regardless of nationality, children must travel with additional documentation as required by the Department of Home Affairs - South Africa (DHA).

Effective June 1, 2015, documentation requirements include, but are not limited to the following:

In addition to a passport, an original, unabridged, or certified (with seal or stamp) copy of the child’s full birth certificate issued within the last 3 months is required for all trips.

The new documentation requirements are applicable to all minors, under the age of 18. However, they may vary and additional documentation may be required, depending upon whether the minor is traveling alone, traveling with one parent or two parents or with another adult.

Children who are traveling unaccompanied, traveling with only one parent or traveling with an adult other than a parent must travel with an affidavit of consent executed by the non-traveling parent(s). To view a sample affidavit, please click here.
All travel documents must be in English or accompanied by a certified translation.

Exceptions may apply. Details are outlined in the DHA final immigration regulation - section six (6): Admission and Departure Subsection 10 – 12.
Please note: Travelers who arrive in South Africa without the required documentation can be detained and/or deported immediately.
