Travel Documents and Visas

A valid passport is required for all international travel. Passports must be valid for at least 6 months after your return from your trip. In certain cases, foreign passport holders require entry, re-entry or departure permits and/or visas to enter a country. Nine Yards Travel will endeavour to help you with any visa queries you might have and all information is given in good faith. However, it is solely your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct visas.

Passports need to have at least two blank pages to enter South Africa. We also recommend that you have at least one blank page for each additional country to be visited.

Travelling with Children:


South Africa has new laws with regards to minors travelling that came into effect from 15 June 2015. Please check with your consulate if they impact you.

Child policy

A child of 12 years and older will automatically be regarded as an adult and charged the full adult rate for all services provided unless otherwise agreed in writing.

Certain suppliers offer a discounted rate to children under 12 years old. These rates will be advised according to the itinerary requested at time of booking.

Certain accommodation establishments refuse permission to children under the age of 12. Acceptance of children is therefore subject to the availability of family units and specific conditions implemented by the supplier.

Suppliers which do allow children may have restrictions regarding activities in which children may partake. This is at the discretion of the supplier and whilst it will be confirmed at time of booking, Nine Yards Travel cannot be held liable to any changes to the supplier’s child policy.
