[LISTEN] What you need for a late registration for an ID

Do you want to apply for an identity document (ID) and not sure what the process entails?

What does the department consider as a late application for an ID number?

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

With these levels of applications, there is a level of authority that is needed in terms of what the panel will consist of in adjudicating these applications.
