The Home Affairs and Immigration Ministry has asked parents or guardians travelling outside Namibia with minors during the festive season to have the necessary travelling documents.
The ministry's spokesperson, Salome Kambala said parents or guardians are required to carry the necessary documents that will identify them as the parents or guardians of the minors.
She said this would avoid complications and delays at the borders.
She said documents required from parents or guardians are a passport, identity document, the child's unabridged birth certificate and a consent form or a police declaration from the absent parent or guardian.
Kambala said because of child trafficking, South Africa has come up with a new law regulation that any parent or guardian who travels outside the country, must have the full birth certificate of the child.
The new law regulation is yet to be fully adopted in Namibia.
