Travel to South Africa for Children

The Republic of South African government requires specific travel documentation for children under 18 years of age to be available for presentation on arrival into and departure from South Africa.

Failure to ensure these requirements are met will result in customers departing from South Africa being denied travel, or customers travelling to South Africa being denied entry and repatriated.
