Effective from the 1st October 2016 minors travelling through the country’s borders will be required to produce the following:

  • Valid passports
  • Certified unabridged birth certificates for all minors below the age of 18
  • A letter of consent from the other parent should the minor be travelling with one parent

Please note that this new development will have an immediate impact on all families travelling to Botswana and we will be contacting all our customers to update them on this change. Having said this, the majority of families travelling to Botswana are arriving through South Africa which currently has similar border requirements. Families should, therefore, have all the required documentation in place.

If you have any questions regarding this then please feel free to call and speak to one of our Bench team.
