- Requirements for children travelling with both biological parents: A child travelling with both biological parents will be required to travel with their passport and original Birth Certificate.
- Requirements for children travelling with only one parent: When a child travels with only one parent, he/she will require a passport, Original Birth Certificate, a stamped affidavit in which the absent parent gives consent for the child to travel or a court order granting full parental responsibilities, or legal guardianship of the child, or the death certificate of the absent parent. The affidavit should be no more than 6 months old from date of travel.
- Requirements for children travelling accompanied but without either parent: In the case of a child travelling with a person other than a parent, the original Birth Certificate must be supplemented by stamped affidavits from the parents or legal guardians confirming that the child may travel with that person, copies of the ID documents or passports of the parents or legal guardian, and the contact details of the parents or legal guardian.
- Requirements for children travelling on their own as unaccompanied minors: A child travelling as an unaccompanied minor has to produce not only the Original Birth Certificate, but also proof of permission from parents or legal guardians and contact details, plus documentation relating to the person receiving the child in South Africa. The latter documentation should include a letter stating the person’s contact details and residential address, contact details where the child will be residing, plus a copy of his or her ID document, passport or residence permit.
All documents must be either original or copies certified as a true copy of the original by a commissioner of oaths or the equivalent commissioning authority, should commissioners of oath not be a practice in the country concerned.

As well as the rich culture, the overwhelming friendliness of the people makes all visitors feel truly welcome and very safe. Add to that a stunning landscapes of mountains and valleys, forests and plains; plus wildlife reserves across the country that are home to The Big Five, and you have all that’s best about Africa in one small but perfectly formed and welcoming country.
