How to:

Register a household employee for access to Welgevonden Estate

The following registration procedure applies for those employed by private households (domestic workers, gardeners, au pairs, caregivers, etc.) to gain access to Welgevonden Estate:


Registering for the first time


The employer completes and signs a registration form (obtainable from the administrative office at the R44 entrance) which the employee presents to the security administrative office at the R304 entrance, together with the employee’s ID and a R20 annual registration fee. (Employers do not necessarily have to accompany their employees.) The employee will be registered on the estate’s biometric (fingerprint) system and issued with an estate ID card. This registration is valid for a period of three months, after which the biometric registration will expire.


Renewal at the end of three months

Employers follow the same procedure as above, but do not have to pay the R20 registration fee if the original registration took place in the same calendar year. The annual registration fee is, however, again payable for renewals in the following calendar year.



Until registration had been completed, employers may allow their employees access to the estate by providing them with PIN access codes via the estate’s GLOVisitor app. Employees will be allowed access upon presentation of their personal IDs and the valid PIN.
