Valid Passport

Our camp is in Namibia, so if you’re coming from outside the country, you’ll need a valid passport for international travel. A passport, issued by a national government, serves as proof of identity and nationality for the holder.


  • To obtain a passport, you must possess a South African identity document or, if you’re a minor, a birth certificate.
  • Minors under 18 years) must have their own passports, which are valid for 5 years rather than the standard 10 years for adults.
  • Emergency and temporary passports are no longer issued by the Department of Home Affairs.
  • When applying for a passport for a minor, both parents must endorse the application and present their identity documents. If one parent is unavailable or resides in a different location, one parent can apply with the minor while the other can confirm the application at a different office.
  • When traveling to Namibia, ensure there’s at least one blank page in your passport. For travel from Namibia to South Africa, you’ll need two blank pages.


South Africans holding dual citizenship are required to depart and return to South Africa using a valid South African passport.

Non-South Africans holding permanent residency in South Africa must either depart and return using a valid South African passport or possess a permanent residency stamp in their non-South African passport.

Both South Africans with dual citizenship and non-South Africans residing in South Africa must ensure that all necessary documentation, including those mentioned above, is in order for both departure from and re-entry into South Africa.


Application for a passport takes 3 – 6 weeks.
If a minor who is applying for a passport is 16 years or older the minor must be in possession of an identity document; an additional 6 – 12 weeks must therefore be factored in if applying for an identity document first.

When applying for a passport for a minor both parents must endorse the application and need to present their identity documents.
In the case of one parent being unavailable or living in another city/town, one parent can make the passport application with the minor. The other parent can confirm the application at a different office, informing the official at which office the original application was made.

Copies of documents are accepted but may only be certified by a commissioner of oaths. The date stamp on copies and affidavits must be within 3 months of the date of return to South Africa. All copies must be on A4 paper; no blank paper may be cut off.
