Children must have their own passport regardless of age. If you want to apply for a passport for your child, you must appear in person at the Citizen Service Centre of your local municipality. When you go there, you should note the following:
- You must bring the child.
- You must bring the child’s original certificate of naming or baptism.
- If you have joint custody, both parents must sign the application form. However, both parents need not appear. The parent who appears must be able to prove his or her identity. If you have sole custody, the Citizen Service Centre may demand supporting documents.
- The photo requirements are the same for children and adults.
