CHILD POLICY: New regulations for families travelling with children to and from South Africa

1)The South African immigration department has expressed concern about the growing issue of global child trafficking and has announced new requirements for adults travelling with children under the age of 18, which will take effect from 1 June 2015. Parents travelling with children would now be requested to provide an unabridged birth certificate (including the details of the child's father as well as the mother) of all travelling children. This applies even when both parents are travelling with their children. When children are travelling with guardians, these adults are required to produce affidavits from parents proving permission for the children to travel. The above applies to foreigners and South Africans travelling to or from South Africa as well as travellers in transit.

2)South Africa does not have a "no bed" policy for children. Children will be accommodated on a standard bed, a roll away bed or a sleeper couch.

3)Certain accommodation establishments refuse permission to children under 12 years of age, e.g. certain private game lodges. Supplier child conditions will apply in these cases.

4)Certain accommodation establishments only accept children in family units. These units are often in limited supply and subject to availability. Acceptance of any child on discounted conditions is therefore subject to availability and confirmation of such units.

5)Children may not be allowed to go on game drives. Some of the lodges do offer baby-sitting facilities at an additional charge. Guests need to arrange the baby-sitting services upon arrival at the lodge and need to settle the service directly
