Discover how Immigration Regulations, which were amended late last year, may impact your travels with children in and out of South Africa, as well as how you need to manage your Spousal Visas.
South African Immigration Regulations were amended on 13 September 2019.
Implication for foreign adults travelling into and out of South Africa with minor children. The restrictions have been relaxed for foreigners bringing children into South Africa, but South Africans travelling abroad will still have to ensure that they have the required paperwork to prove that the child is travelling with the permission of both parents.
A further amendment relates to couples who hold spousal visas – there is a requirement that holders of these visas report on a prescribed form after two years, that the relationship on which the visa was based, still exists. If this is not done, a basic condition of the visa will not be met, and the visa may be cancelled.
