Unabridged Birth Certificates
What is an Unabridged Birth Certificate?
The South African Department of Home Affairs introduced new travel regulations on the 1st of June 2015. All passengers under the age of 18 traveling in and out of the country without an adult is required to present an Unabridged Birth Certificate, along with the consent of both parents. Failure to do so, would lead to the minor being prevented from boarding a flight.
This law was introduced to combat child trafficking and to improve the safety of children.
