I suppose "half a loaf is better than none".We are thankful that someone has finally seen sense and scrapped the UBC for FOREIGN inbound tourists - what s pity that sense did not totally prevail and that UBC were also scrapped for Outbound South African children . Or is the South African passport not considered to be on the same level as those from other countries ?A golden opportunity missed
They still need to carry their documents if they are flying through to Botswana or Namibia though. I wonder if there will be a change there...
Finally. However South African families still have to cart a suitcase full of documents whenever they travel abroad.
Lets hope they informed the staff at our SA embassies/consulates because it is a case of they are never sure how to advise travelers. Hopefully DIRCO has also been active on informing staff.... Their website is down when I wanted to have a look so one has no idea.
