• New SA visa regulations have airlines in a frenzy

    International airline Virgin Atlantic says it expects to have to turn some foreign passengers away at airports when new regulations come in on Monday, and that airlines are going to suffer financially as a result. From next week, people travelling in and out of South Africa will be required to have unabridged birth certificates for the children travelling with them, and to have affidavits from parents if they're not with the children. The travel industry has strongly criticised the plans, but Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has promised they will be implemented this time around. Virgin Atlantic country manager Liezl Gericke says they're still battling to explain these rules to international markets.
