I have spoken to a UK national who returned from SA just before Christmas. During his 3 week tour his tour coach was stopped twice by the police in a road block and requested to show his passport. On the first occasion, like many others, he did not have it with him and was fined 500Rand. Any others experienced this arbitrary police action? Does anyone have official documents that state whether UK Passports need to be carried at all times?
