Each child under the age of 18 travelling will be required to have an Unabridged Birth Certificate.

Please note that the Unabridged Birth Certificate contains both parents’ full names and surname as well as their ID numbers along with the child’s details.

This rule was implemented by the Dept of Immigration and commenced at the beginning of June 2015. Minors who do not have their unabridged birth certificate will NOT be allowed through immigrations in South Africa – departing and arriving.

If your child is not yet 18 years of age and does not have such a birth certificate, please apply now.  The processing of the document can take several months, so it is of utmost importance that all students apply for it now.

All documents need to be in English. If they are not in English, they need to be OFFICIALLY TRANSLATED to an English document.

South African citizens can apply for an Unabridged Birth Certificate at the Dept of Home Affairs.

Foreign citizens must apply at their country’s Embassy / Consulate

  • For the immigration requirements, the stamps which certify the copied document, needs to be original with the original signature of the officer / commissioner of oath.
