Welcome! This site provides information about ‘foreign’ children in South Africa.
‘Foreign’ children should access school, clinics and birth certificates, just like their South African friends – but this can be difficult sometimes. A child is anyone under the age of 18. A foreign child is someone who is born, inside or outside South Africa, to parents who are not South African. Click on a button below to find out what steps you can take.
