Travelling with a child across international borders

Do you need a travel consent letter?

Unless you’ve been given a specific form, format, or template for a Letter of Consent to Travel, you should remember to include the following important information:

  • The full legal name of the child who is travelling.
  • The date of birth and passport number of the child who is travelling.
  • The full legal name of the adult person who will be accompanying the child.
  • The date of birth and passport number of the adult person who will be accompanying the child.
  • The destinations that the child can travel to, especially if there are limitations*.
  • The dates on which that child can travel*.
  • Any other limitations to the consent*.

*you should consider that any limitations to the consent, including destinations or dates, may create difficulties for the adult person who will be accompanying the child if they encounter any changes to their plans or emergencies and the travel consent letter is no longer valid to deal with that situation.

For more information about the travel consent letter, please visit our article “Does the travel consent letter need to be notarised?
