Unabridged Birth Certificate – Get yours even if you are not travelling
In order to prevent trafficked or kidnapped children from entering or leaving our borders, the South African Ministry of Home Affairs requires that all minor children under the age of 18, irrespective of their nationality, travelling in and out of South Africa are required to present to immigration offices the following documents:
- A valid passport
- The necessary visas if required as well as
- An unabridged birth certificate
These documents are required for each child
Because of the delays often experienced in obtaining these documents, it is important that parents and guardians of minor children obtain the new unabridged birth certificates well in advance of making any travel plans so as to avoid any delays.

Parents or guardians must provide all the Home Affairs Application documents with original or certified copies of documents:
Unabridged Birth Certificates contain the child’s full names, his or her identity number, date and place of birth as well as full details of the biological father and mother.
Q-Pro encourages parents and guardians of all minor children, South African citizens to obtain their Unabridged birth certificates even though they may not have any immediate plans to travel out of the country.
