Minors under 18 years flying to/from South Africa

All minors under 18 years of age travelling to and from the Republic of South Africa, have to present additional documentation. These new regulations apply to all travellers, regardless of their nationality. They were promulgated (set out) in terms of the South African Immigration Amendment Act of 2010 and define children as persons under the age of 18. It is the responsibility of passengers to ensure their children have the correct documentation or risk being denied boarding. The law will be enforced by airlines and immigration officials at land borders, sea ports and airports.

IMPORTANT – Compliance is your responsibility

Proflight together with every airline operating to/from South Africa are responsible for advising its customers on the new Immigration regulations relating to Minor’s under 18 years. These regulations are enshrined in the laws of the Republic of South Africa. While we will endeavour to provide our customers with timely information any changes to the regulations Proflight accepts no liability for any inaccuracies in the content and/or for consequential loss in the event of denied boarding due to decisions of any government agency.

For more information

We advise parents and guardians of minors under 18 years travelling to/from South Africa to visit the official Department of Home Affairs website.
