Has anyone heard anything about new regulations in SA pertaining to minors entering the country with their parents or grandparents? This was posted by a well known booking agent here in the states: IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PERSONS TAKING MINOR CHILDREN TO SOUTH AFRICA South Africa, reportedly effective this October 1st, is now requiring a lot of documentation if you want to bring your minor child or grandchild into South Africa. The rules go beyond what we can lay out here, but briefly you need a genuine unabridged birth certificate (not a photocopy- probably with a seal on it we think). You will need forms for permission from any parents who are not accompanying the child. YOU SHOULD CHECK WITH YOUR TRAVEL AGENT BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO FLY. We are led to believe that any attempt to bring a child into the country without all the appropriate documents, will mean you will be denied entry, although that is uncertain at this time. And of course the requirements for securing permission to import a weapon into the country also remain in effect. We are happy to make suggestions in that regard.
