All travellers must have a valid passport that is valid for a minimum of 6 months beyond the scheduled return date of the trip and should have a minimum of three blank pages available.
A passport can be applied for at your nearest Department of Home Affairs office.
Travellers with foreign nationality passports, who do not have a South African passport, will be required to have one of the following documents valid for 6 months after the return date:
A study visa
A work visa
A temporary residence permit
A permanent residence permit
Travellers with dual citizenship passports will be required to have both passports valid for 6 months beyond the scheduled return date present on the day of departure. This will only be applicable if one of the passports exempts the traveller from needing a visa.

The Unabridged Birth Certificate states the child’s name at birth, along with the details ( parents’ full names and surname as well as their ID numbers) of both the biological parents of the child. An Unabridged Birth Certificate can be applied for at your nearest Department of Home Affairs office.
