Fees for renewing child (under16) passports
We are applying for new passports for our boys since their current passports expire in November 2015. We have read all the information online at and have seen that costs for passports for children under 16 years of age is $44 each. However, we have also seen that there is a fee of $10 for each confirmation of SA citizenship and THAT form must accompany all applications for passports. Does this mean that we have to pay $44 and $10 for each child’s application? Please be precise since the information on the website indicates that incorrect amounts will be sent back and passports not renewed.
