All parents of minors (under 18 years old) must document legal custody before traveling.
- If a minor travel with only one parent, the absent parent should prepare a consent notarized letter.
- In the case where only one parent has legal custody, notarized documents attesting this should be carried (a copy of the sole custody document or death certificate of absent parent.)
- If a minor is traveling on his own, or with someone else, both parents (or the sole custodial parent) should provide a notarized letter of consent.
- In a case where the minor travelling has a different last name to the parent's, a proof of custody should be provided (birth certificate, adoption decree, etc) in order to prove that they are the parents.
