Each person travelling will be required to have the following documents:


A valid passport:

Each person travelling needs to have a passport that is valid for a minimum of 6 months after the return date back to South Africa.

Travellers with other nationality passports who do not have a South African passport will be required to have:

  • A study visa valid for 6 months after the return date OR
  • A work visa valid for 6 months after the return date OR
  • A temporary residence permit valid for 6 months after the return date OR

Unabridged Birth Certificate: 

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


Immigration Documents:

For a child under the age of 18 to enter/exit the country, passport control at the airports will request to see certain documents. These documents need to be prepared and taken with on tour.

Please see below required documents:

  • Certified copy of Unabridged Birth Certificate of the child
  • Parental Consent Affidavit (Home Affairs form – must be stamped and signed by a commissioner of oath)
  • Certified copy of mother ID / female legal guardian
  • Certified copy of father ID / male legal guardian

Important Notes and Instructions

  • The immigration requirements apply to all children that will not be 18 years of age by the day before departure.
  • 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.
  • This means that no scanned and e-mail documents will be accepted for this purpose.

Further instructions regarding the immigration documents will be given through at a later stage such as the accompanying adult’s details.

    We had an incredible tour, the sport was great and the cultural experience was wonderful for all concerned.

    The itinerary was jammed packed and very tiring but all in all great time had by all.

    Thank you to everyone at T & S for their involvement in making it the success that it was.


    I would like to thank the Travel and Sport team for the great experience the Rovers Invitational Teams had with our rugby tour to England and Wales from 30 November – 8 December 2018 with 53 players, 6 coaches and several supporters.

    Everything was perfectly organised and we could just focus on the rugby matches and sight seeing. Everyone had a great experience on and off the field and a lifetime of memories were made. We are already looking forward to our tour to Ireland in 2019.

    Kind regards
    Etienne van den Brink
