An unabridged birth certificate is a document containing the information of both parents’, including their ID numbers, full names, city of birth and citizenship, as well as the identity document number, first name and surname, date of birth, place of birth, and country of birth of the minor.

All South African citizens under the age of 18 (minors) travelling out of the country have to produce an unabridged birth certificate in addition to other required documents (passports, visa stamps, etc.) when entering or exiting South Africa.
