Breaking news: South Africa s new Visa Regulations for travelling with children has been postponed until 1 June 2015

The Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba has announced changes to the implementation of South Africa's new visa rules. 

Speaking at a press briefing in Cape Town Gigaba announced the new requirement of an unabridged birth certificate for all children travelling to and within South Africa's borders has been postponed until June 1, 2015.
This refers to the requirements that children be in possession of an unabridged birth certificate and have written permission from both parentsguardians authorising the child's travel.
Minister Gigaba has heard the plight of the tourism industry and is prepared to work with Cape Town Tourism on minimising the impact that some of the more far-reaching changes were poised to have.

“We have granted the postponement of these two particular requirements -- the unabridged birth certificate and written permission, to June 1, 2015," Gigaba told reporters at Parliament.

Cape Town Tourism is continuing to also work with partners such as FEDHASA, WESGRO, SATSA and The City of Cape Town to create a clear and wide-reaching communication campaign to bring the facts to all potential travellers who may have to apply for new documents or in new ways in order to travel to South Africa.
