Renunciation Of Citizenship
Citizenship by naturalisation, loss of citizenship, citizenship resumption, and expert professional advice.
A South African citizen who intends to acquire the citizenship of another country, or who also has the citizenship of another country other than South Africa, may renounce South African citizenship.
Once the South African citizen’s declaration of renunciation is registered by the Department of Home Affairs such person shall cease to be a South African citizen. Whenever a person ceases to be a South African citizen by way of renunciation, his or her children under the age of 18 years shall automatically cease to be South African citizens if the other parent of such children is not, or does not remain, a South African citizen.
