Unabridged Birth Certificates
Abridged birth certificates depicting the child’s details as well as only the mother’s name have been scrapped by South Africa’s Ministry of Home Affairs, being replaced by the more detailed Unabridged Birth Certificates depicting full details of both parents for all children born after March of 2013.
In order to prevent child trafficking, all travelers accompanied by minor children under the age of 18 years of age coming into or heading out of South Africa must present an Unabridged Birth Certificate to immigration for each child in their care in addition to the standard requirements of passports and visas where necessary.
