(BBC) – South Africa has introduced new rules, requiring any child crossing its borders to be in possession of – or to have earlier submitted during a visa application – a full, unabridged birth certificate.
“We’re very, very worried,” said Mmatsatsi Ramawela, head of the Tourism Business Council of South Africa.
“The world – countries like the US, France and the UK are all doing everything they can to attract [tourists] and we’re doing the opposite.
“We think South Africa is going back – these regulations are so stringent, so in the past. We think South Africa should be learning,” she said.
