Travel restrictions often catch passengers off guard especially when a parent is travelling with kids without his or her other partner. Many a parent had been stopped by airport authorities when travelling internationally when asked for a child travel consent letter and couldn’t produce it. Being a parent without the other spouse’s consent means the child cannot travel with the other parent just by producing a passport alone.You may also see interview consent forms

Most countries’ governments are strict when it comes to children travelling alone or with just one parent. This is to prevent possible problems that can have legal implications later on. For one, couples might be estranged from each other and could be fighting for custody of the kids. One parent might be tempted to take the kids away far from the clutches of the other. This is possible by bringing the kids to another country where the legal arm of the law cannot catch them in countries that do not have extradition agreements. This can have huge legal complications especially when it’s found out later the parent bringing the kids is actually the one who lost custodial rights to the children.You may also see informed consent forms

Here are the following reasons to which a child consent letter should be secured:

1. when travelling across the border like the U.S to Canada, Mexico, or flying to another country;

2. when travelling with grandparents or any relatives or adult escorts;

3. when travelling with a stepparent;

4. if only one of the birth parents is accompanying the child/children; and

5. if the parent accompanying the child/children is granted full custodial rights but without the consent of the other parent who retains access/visitation rights.You may also see research consent forms

Those are just some of the restrictions placed on adults who accompany children to travel when it comes to securing a child consent letter. In signing a child consent form, the following persons who do not accompany the trip should sign the form:

1. one or both parents who are married or in a common law relationship,

2. one or both parents who are divorced or separated and not living together, and

3. individuals other than parents with guardianship rights and responsibility of the child/children.

Our website’s sample consent forms and Informed Consent Forms are downloadable and printable for use when such forms are needed to gain travel permissions for a child or minor traveler.

Normally, it’s required for children to carry child consent travel forms when travelling up to the age of 18 and below. The consent form may then be witnessed by anyone who has attained the age of 18 and above. These should then be certified preferably by a notary public. This is so that immigration officials will not question the authenticity of the form/letter.You may also see psychology consent forms

If neither parent is present to accompany the child, it’s acceptable for either both parents to each issue a consent form or jointly issue a letter of consent provided both their signatures are affixed on the letter. These should also be certified by a notary public.You may also see survey consent forms
