This was released from the department of the home affairs issues in South Africa, these entry rules were to be put in place on 1st October 2014, but due to many foreseen circumstances within the country, the new entry rule is to be effective on 1st June 2015.
Single parents who are likely to travel in the country are to show more prove through producing evidence in which the absent parent gives consent for the child to travel, a court order granting full parental responsibilities or legal guardianship of the child, or the death certificate of the absent parent and the evidence provided should not be more than three months old on the date of travel.
A child travelling with any other person other than a parent, should carry complete birth certificate along side with the evidence from the legal parents or guardians and also if u are below 18 years travelling to South Africa.
