South Africa's Department of Home Affairs (DHA) has published an amendment to the country's Immigration Act. According to the amendment, which comes into effect on 01 December 2018, the requirement for foreign families from visa-free countries to produce an unabridged birth certificate for their minor children before being allowed access into South Africa has been reversed. Visitors from visa-required countries planning to visit South Africa with minor children still need to submit a birth certificate when they apply for a visa. Minor children who are not accompanied by both parents still need to comply with special documentary requirements. (see the Government Gazette below).
