Travelling to SA in 7 weeks for 3-week holiday and realised last week that my 11 year old's SA passport has expired. Went to SA High Commission last week to collect application forms and told to apply now, might take 4 months, but travel with receipt and expired SA passport for child, but enter her on UK passport.
Went to apply today only to be told that advice is incorrect. It will take 4 months. Don't make any plans to travel before then.
Is my UK-born daughter able to travel in and out of SA on her British passport as the law quoted on http://www.dha.gov.za/index.php/travel-documents2
"...Applicants should note that In terms of section 26(B) of the South African Citizenship Act, 1995, it is a punishable offence for a South African citizen of 18 years and older to leave or enter South Africa on a foreign passport...."
What does mean for my 11-year old???
Any advice would be appreciated. @Alethia
had some great advice on several threads, just not sure how to proceed.
