If you are flying to South Africa with children and without one or more parents on the childs birth certificate expect Emirates to deny you boarding even if you comply with the paperwork set out by the South African Embassy.
Emirates denied boarding and would not refund - with paperwork that was considered acceptable by South Africa on a previous trip with another airline.
AVOID them in these circumstances as they will not care or be helpful at all - they claim customer is at fault for their incorrect reading of the rules... despite SA Embassy agreeing with me.
