Great news if you are travelling with kids from or to South Africa. In a previous article we discussed the new rules.

Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba announced on Tuesday that 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.

According to Sapa, the portfolio committee on home affairs said the postponement will enable the department to ‘fine-tune’ their processes.

“This will ensure that those citizens who have already made travel arrangements for the upcoming festive season holidays will not be inconvenienced,” committee chairperson Lemias Mashile said in a statement.

Fine-tune their processes. Yea. Rather late than never. But the intention to listen and adapt mean a lot. I believe we will get a fine-tuned regulation during 2015.
