If Arthur Goldstuck is correct then it is not only the SA officials in
Israel who are interpreting the law incorrectly. As evidenced by the great
difficulty my son had in leaving SA after a visit, authorities at the exit
ports there are also incorrect. My son is no longer a South African citizen
And his case is not an isolated one. As a result many, many ex South
Africans are taking the precaution of having a South African passport as
well as their Israeli document. As I understand it, insisting on this gives
the SA authorities greater control over the exit of cash >from that country.

A new law, noticed by me on the website of the Department of Home
Affairs, South Africa, mentions that former South Africans living abroad
therefore travelling on a passport of their present country of residence,
now need a South African passport should they wish to enter South Africa.
The notification refers specifically to those who are still South African
citizens, but SA officials in Israel are implementing it incorrectly,
extending it to those who are South African born but not citizens any more.
