Minor Travel Consent Form

Minor choosing travel destination on world map

The Minor Travel Consent Form has become increasing necessary because of the rise in instances of child abduction in custody cases, and a growing number of children who are the victims of trafficking.

An immigration officer, airline, or travel company may ask for a letter of consent if the child is traveling internationally with only one parent or with another adult, such as a relative, friend, teacher, etc.

You can download the minor travel consent form in PDF format at the bottom of the page. The sample form below is a guide only. You are also encouraged to have the consent form notarized. Parents who share custody of their children should carry copies of the legal custody documents. You can also contact the embassy of the country or countries the minor child will be visiting to confirm travel entry requirements.
