Proof of Identification and Visa

Because we don’t want you to waste time searching through bags for ID documents and unabridged birth certificates, we’ve compiled a list of things you will need to bring with you to check-in and boarding.

What proof of identification is required?


For domestic travel

  • On domestic flights, you are required to present your government-issued ID document.

  • Failure to provide the required documentation will result in your being denied to board.


For international travel

  • On regional flights you are required to present a valid passport, which does not expire in six (6) months or less from the date of departure and has two (2) blank pages.

  • If required, please ensure you carry any relevant visa on your person.

  • A machine-readable passport is required when travelling to South Africa. Please get an individual biometric passport for each child before travel. A machine-readable passport has a series of numbers, letters and symbols at the bottom of the photo page.

  • If you are unable to provide the required documentation, you will not be allowed to board.

Travelling to South Africa?

Please read the South African Government Advisory to find out more about the government requirements for children travelling through South African ports of entry.


Do you need a Visa?

Some countries will require a Visa. Depending on your destination you may be issued with a Visa on arrival, although this can be a lengthy and potentially inconvenient process (long queues, humid airports, etc.). If you can get your Visa before you travel, we advise that you do so.
