Very Important: Anyone travelling to South Africa requires a valid passport which must include two consecutive blank pages in their passport which lie side by side when the passport is open (i.e. a left and a right hand page). Passports must also be valid for at least six months after the date of travel. Passengers travelling to South Africa with passports which do not comply with these requirements, will either be stopped from boarding the aircraft or risk deportation upon arrival in South Africa. In addition, a parent travelling with children, WITHOUT the other parent, will need a letter of consent from the absent parent. The police must certify the letter of consent. Visitors must also have a return ticket.
Please pay attention to the fact that applying for a new passport may take up to six weeks. Enquiries can be directed to South African diplomatic representatives abroad or the Department of Home Affairs in Pretoria.
