John Maytham speaks to the Department of Home Affairs Western Cape district co-ordinator Sam Plaatjies on the steps followed in applying for a late ID.
Any birth that is not registered at birth after the 31 days of birth is deemed to be a late registration of birth. From 31 days to 1 year. We also have one year to seven years. The other one is seven years to 14 years, then 15 years and above.— Sam Plaatjies, Department of Home Affairs - Western Cape district coordinator
