Affidavit document for sole parent traveling to SA with child

Jump to last reply

Traveling form Canada to SA:

Someone (a travel agent I believe) replied to a post of mine about travel documents needed for my 15 year old as I am the sole parent-my husband is deceased. She said If traveling with children under 18, I must bring their Unabridged Birth Certificates (aka Original Birth Certificates) in addition to their passports. I am dong this. She also said If traveling with children under 18 and only one parent/guardian is traveling, then the non-traveling parent/guardian must fill out an affidavit giving permission to the traveling parent.

She sent the links below for further info and details regarding these requirements as well as the affidavit template:

http://www.dha.gov.za/files/ParentalConsentAffidavit.pdf

My question is this: Do I for sure need the Consent Affidavit?? I am bring the death certificate and I don't really understand the affidavit - and don't know what the 'official stamp' is?

Can someone clarify please. Many thanks.
