Traveling with kids to or from South Africa?
When you are unsure, we suggest you visit www.dha.gov.. before your trip, apply to your local embassy/consulate or obtain counsel. What is the reason why the Southern Africa authorities are amending the children's trip legislation and visas? Children's trip legislation and visas are designed to curb and stop the trade in children across Southern Africa's frontiers.
Legislation applies to anyone who travels to or from Southern Africa with a minor under 18. These include people who leave or enter the county, and foreigners who enter and leave the county. Legislation applies to all frontiers of Africa: ashore, at sea or in the skies.
This does not apply to those traveling within South Africa. Necessary documentation should be presented during the procedure for applying for a transit visa and all documentation and visas should be personally accompanied during the trip. Please specify which documentation is needed. Briefly, all under 18s who leave South Africa and enter South Africa must have an uncut natal document attached to their passports - together with the appropriate visas if necessary.
Dependent on (1) with whom the infant travels, (2) the parents' civil state and ( 3) any other particular circumstance (adoption, caring, whether both parent are still living, etc.) extra documentation is needed to accurately identify which documentation is necessary for your particular situation. For how long do the certificates have to be kept?
Please be aware that Parental Consent Affidavit (PCA) documentation must be signed and signed within four month of your arrival or your date of origin. Do I have to go with the originals? If the Commissioner is not a practitioner in the relevant Member State, all originals or copies of originals must be issued by an ombudsman or similar authorities.
Unconfirmed natal papers? UBC (Unabridged Birth Certification ) is a birthright record that represents the information of both parent (s) of the infant. Every baby conceived in South Africa after 14 March 2013 received a free and automatic full and complete birthday card. All those who have been previously baptized and those from non-automatic issuers must request the voucher well in advance of their itinerary.
How about birth and non-English written records? Papers written in a non-English document will be acceptable, but a certified sworn translator is highly appreciated. But what if there's no full natal record in my state? For those Member States which do not provide full natal records, a corresponding document should be submitted to the relevant authorities of the Member State concerned.
As regards those Member States which do not provide full natal documents, an adequate certificate should be provided containing the information of the infant and its parent, provided by the relevant authorities of the Member State concerned. If my nation does not make an affidavit, what happens? This example is Parental Consent Affidavit (PDF).
Where can I get an uncut birthday card in Southern Africa? Alto Adige families can request an uncut natal document from any department of the interior. Necessary documentation for the application: They have to fill out and send off a form. R75 (cash only) will be charged for the full natal certificates.
Specified period of issuance of an uncut natal document is between 3 and 8 week. So my kid gets adopted so our name won't be on her chart, what do I do? Adoptive parent should provide evidence of adoptive status through an adoptive certification or judicial order stating that they are the adoptive parent to accurately identify which documentation is required for your particular situation.
Passes and visa (if required) are still needed.
If my baby is traveling with a grandparent or a member of the big household, what happens? Every minor under the ages of 18, even if they travel with members of their families, or any adults who are not parents or guardians, must be in receipt of the necessary records to accurately identify which records are necessary for your particular situation.
If my kid is traveling with a class, what happens? Every minor under the ages of 18, even if they travel with a teacher, or any adults who are not parents or guardians, must be in receipt of the necessary papers to accurately identify which papers are necessary for their particular situation.
If we do not have the necessary documents at the moment of check-in, what happens? Air carriers are subject to immigration laws in the Republic of Africa and must act accordingly. Passengers who do not have the necessary documents may not make the journey. What can I do to get in touch with the Ministry of the Interior?
