Registering Births

SA High CommissionI have finally got around to sorting the paperwork for registering the birth of the children in South Africa.  I should have done it within 30 days of the birth but at the time it was not something that crossed my mind.  Thankfully, there is provision on the form DHA-24 (had to post off for three copies of this one) to give suitable reasons for not registering the birth.

For each child: 8 passport photos, 2 copies birth certificate, 2 copies my passport, 2 copies Amy’s passport, 2 copies marriage certificate (legalised), 4 forms, £35 postal order and an email address.

That should be fairly straight forward if we apply ourselves in a methodical and logical manner.  I’ll keep you updated on progress.
