Reunion Island New volcanic eruption

A new volcanic eruption has started on Reunion Island, where Piton de la Fournaise is now producing a lava flow that is travelling down its slopes. 

The new eruption is coming from the southern side of the volcano and roads and parks in the immediate vicinity have been closed.

A series of minor earthquakes preceded the eruption, with at least a few hundred recorded early yesterday. 

This is the second eruption in the past year at Piton de la Fournaise after 3 years of quiet. That eruption only lasted a few hours, and the volcano was recently lowered from a volcanic alert status.

Unabridged Birth Certificates Compulsory for Travelling Minors

All travellers under 18 years who are entering or leaving South Africa will be required to have unabridged birth certificates along with passports from the 1st of October 2014. This is part of the Department of Home Affairs’ efforts to put an end to child trafficking. These documents need to be presented during check-in for flights.

These are the most basic documentation requirements:

1. Parents travelling with children

Parents who are travelling with their child should produce the child’s unabridged birth certificate which reflects both parents’ details.
2. One parent travelling with a child will need to accompany the unabridged certificate with:

Consent (in the form of an affidavit) from the other parent whose details appear on the birth certificate.
A court order showing they have full parental responsibilities and rights if they are a legal guardian.
The other parent’s death certificate, if applicable.
3. Persons travelling with a minor who is not their biological child will need:

A copy of the child’s unabridged birth certificate.
An affidavit from the parents or legal guardian of the child granting permission to travel with the child.
Contact details of the parents or legal guardian of the child.
Under some circumstances and upon presentation of certain documentation, entry into or departure from the country may be approved if both parents are deceased.

4. Unaccompanied travelling minors need to present the following to the immigration officer:

Proof of consent from one or both of his/her parents or legal guardian, whatever the case may be.
A letter from the person receiving the child in the Republic, which contains the residential address and contact details of where the child will be residing.
A copy of the identity document or valid passport, along with the visa or permanent residence permit of the person who is receiving the child in the Republic.
The parents or legal guardian of the child’s contact details.
If you would like more information on these updated requirements, have a look at information released by the Department of Home Affairs:

MSC Sinfonia gets an upgrade



Cape Town - The popular South African cruise liner, the MSC Sinfonia, will be one of a few MSC cruise ships undergoing a 200 million Euro upgrade in the Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo, Sicily. 

The improved MSC Sinfonia is planned to return to South African seas in time for the 2015/2016 cruising season, reports iAfrica. 

Only 4 of the twelve ships in the MSC fleet will be revamped in this 'Renaissance Program' - the MSC Armonia, MSC Licrica, the MSC Opera and the MSC Sinfonia.

They are planned to be lengthened by inserting a pre-made 24 meter long section to the vessel, that would enable the it to hold more than 600 passengers extra.

Facilities, such as a Baby Club childcare unit and a Young Club unit for older children, will be also be initiated as part of the improvement program. Technological improvements, as well as an upgrade to the menus and the beloved 20-hour buffet are also something cruisers can look forward to.
