Cape Town - The Association of Southern African Travel Agents (ASATA) says the decision by the department of home affairs to delay the implementation of new regulations for adults travelling with children will allow it to iron out many of the issues it has caused. Otto de Vries, CEO of ASATA said in a statement, “This certainly does take the pressure off of our members and their clients, in the short term and we can now ensure that all ASATA agencies inform their clients accordingly for those travelling after 01 October 2014."ASATA plans to engage the department to ascertain clarity on the following relating to the requirement for adults travelling with children to have an unabridged copy of the child's birth certificate (which details information of both parents):- What happens if adults are travelling on a local cruise?- Can a certified copy of the unabridged certificate be used instead of the original? - If custody has been granted to one parent and that parent travels often with the child, will a new affidavit from the other parent be required each time.Asata also want home affairs to confirm how the new immigration regulation has been communicated to all stakeholders overseas, since the rule applies to both local and foreign travellers with children.
