The Democratic Alliance will be calling on Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba to scrap the new visa regulations. 

The new rules, instituted by the department of home affairs, require an unabridged birth certificate for all children travelling to, through or out of South Africa as of the 1st of June.

The new immigration rules are believed to cost the tourism sector over R6.8 billion in losses and result in severe job cuts.

DA’s Beverley Schafer said the unabridged certificates which are coming into affect around the 1st of June 2015 is really going to hamper what we call family travel into South Africa.

Schafer said we believe this part of these regulations will hamper the 21 000 jobs that tourism brings to the Western Cape and we call for these regulations to be suspended.
