*Official Notice: Parental consent affidavit for children under 18

Please note that it is required by law that all children under 18 who travel to and from South Africa must be in possession of an Unabridged Birth Certificate (UBC) or equivalent document and a parental consent affidavit. An equivalent document is any official document or letter issued by a foreign government (including a foreign embassy) or a letter issued by the Director-General of the Department of Home Affairs in lieu of an unabridged birth certificate and which serves as a confirmation of parentage of a person below the age of 18.
