Eight Dutch teenagers were refused entry into the country because they failed to produce their unabridged birth certificates.
The teenagers were in the country to do a community service working with The President's Award for Youth Empowerment in South Africa, to interact with the South African youth and change lives.
CapeTalk's John Maytham spoke to Lara Kruiskamp, CEO: The President's Award for Youth Empowerment.
We had 8 very excited and energized youth to come and join us for two weeks in South Africa from Holland and they were denied entry due to new immigration laws in our country…. We were really upset that they couldn’t join us— Lara Kruiskamp
