Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Parental Consent Affidavit to travel with a minor?

South Africa Law requires that minor children have certain documentation with them when they travel to, from or in South Africa.

In all circumstances, an Unabridged Birth Certificate (“UBC”) for the minor child is needed.  An Unabridged Birth Certificate is supposed to contain the details of both parents.

It may contain information about legal guardians (appointed by the Courts) or adoptive parents too.

When a minor child is not travelling with both people named on the Unabridged Birth Certificate, it is required by Law that the person(s) that is NOT travelling with the child sign a Parental Consent Affidavit (“PCA”).

A Parental Consent Affidavit confirms that the minor is permitted to travel by the person(s) that is not with them.

What supporting documents need to go with the Parental Consent Affidavit?

You will need different supporting documents in different circumstances.

Minor accompanied by both parents

  • Valid Passport;
  • Valid visa, if required;
  • and Unabridged Birth Certificate or Equivalent Document.

Minor travelling with one parent

(where parents are neither divorced nor is travelling parent widowed)

  • Valid passport;
  • Valid visa, if required;
  • Unabridged Birth Certificate or Equivalent Document;
  • and Parental Consent Affidavit.

Note:

  • In the case of single parents, where only one parent’s particulars appear on the Unabridged Birth Certificate or Equivalent Document, no Parental Consent Affidavit is required.
  • In the case where parents were never married but both parents’ particulars appear on the Unabridged Birth Certificate or equivalent document, the consent of the non-travelling parent is required;
  • In the case of same-sex parents appearing on the Unabridged Birth Certificate, it may be accepted (e.g. 2 mothers or 2 fathers).

Minor travelling with one parent

(who is divorced or legally separated and who has been granted full parental responsibilities and rights (previously called ―sole custody) or full legal guardianship in respect of the minor)

  • Valid Passport;
  • Valid visa, if required;
  • Unabridged Birth Certificate or Equivalent Document;
  • Court order granting full parental responsibilities and rights (previously called sole custody) or full legal guardianship in respect of the minor.

Minor travelling with one parent

(who is divorced or legally separated and who has been granted specific parental responsibilities and rights (previously called ―joint custody) or legal guardianship in respect of the minor)

  • Valid Passport;
  • Valid visa, if required;
  • Unabridged Birth Certificate or Equivalent Document;
  • Court order granting specific parental responsibilities and rights (previously called joint custody) or joint legal guardianship in respect of the minor; and
  • Parental Consent Affidavit.

Note: Where the accompanying parent presents a Parental Consent Affidavit and both parents’ names on the Unabridged Birth Certificate correspond with the names on the Parental Consent Affidavit and the travelling parent’s passport, a court granting specific parental responsibilities and rights or joint legal guardianship may be dispensed with.

Minor travelling with one parent

(who is a widow or widower)

  • Valid Passport;
  • Valid visa, if required;
  • Unabridged Birth Certificate or equivalent document;
  • Death certificate of the deceased parent

Orphaned minor

(where no formal order of guardianship or adoption has been granted as yet)

  • Valid Passport;
  • Valid visa, if required; and
  • Letter of Special Circumstances.

Minor travelling with a person who is not his or her biological parent

  • Valid Passport;
  • Valid visa, if required;
  • Unabridged Birth Certificate or equivalent document;
  • Parental Consent Affidavit;
  • Where a Parental Consent Affidavit is presented,
    • copies of the identity documents or passports of the parents or legal guardian of the minor; and
    • contact details of the parents or legal guardian of the minor; and contact details of the person in whose care the minor will be in South Africa.

Minor travelling with their adoptive parent(s)

  • Valid Passport;
  • Valid visa, if required;
  • Unabridged Birth Certificate of the minor reflecting particulars of the adoptive parent(s), or,
  • Pending the issuance of an Unabridged Birth Certificate containing the names of the adoptive parent(s), a court order confirming the adoption of the minor by the adoptive parent(s) accompanying him or her.

Note:

  • Where only one of the adoptive parents is travelling with the minor or where such a minor is travelling unaccompanied, the Parental Consent Affidavit will still be required by the absent adoptive parent(s), or, in the case of a deceased adoptive parent, a copy of such parent’s death certificate.
  • Where either or both adoptive parents are unable to issue written consent due to recent death or incapacity a Letter of Special Circumstances may replace the Parental Consent Affidavit.

Unaccompanied Minor

(this category includes a minor accompanied by another minor)

  • Valid Passport;
  • Valid visa, if required;
  • Unabridged Birth Certificate or Equivalent Document;
  • Parental Consent Affidavit or Letter of Special Circumstances;
  • Letter from the person who is to receive the minor in the Republic, containing his or her residential address and contact details in the Republic where the minor will be residing;
  • Copy of the identity document or valid passport and visa or permanent residence permit of the person who is to receive the minor in the Republic; and
  • Contact details of the parents or legal guardian of the minor. (This may be contained in the Parental Consent Affidavit.)

 

Do I need a Parental Consent Affidavit to travel with a minor?

Use a Parental Consent Affidavit when a minor child is travelling to or from South Africa with one or no parents or guardians.

How do I make my Parent Consent Affidavit into and formal Affidavit?

Once you have your Parental Consent Affidavit document from iLawyer it must be “commissioned” by a Commissioner of Oaths (or equivalent officer outside of South Africa) or notarised by a Notary Public.  When an affidavit is “commissioned”, the Commission of Oath confirms that the person signing the document (the “deponent”) has confirmed that the information in the affidavit is true.  In South Africa, you can find a Commissioner of Oaths at any Police Station.  Outside of South Africa, you can usually find a Commissioner of Oaths at a South Africa Embassy or Mission.
