U.S. Citizens traveling to South Africa

We would like to draw your attention to new requirements for children who are entering, transiting, or departing South Africa, which came into force on June 1.

All children must travel with a birth certificate that shows the names of the child and the child’s parents.  Children who are traveling with only one parent, or who are traveling unaccompanied by either parent, must travel with an affidavit of consent executed by the non-traveling parent(s).
