Comments and Help with child travel authorization

Parents have to sign a consent letter when they send their child to travel with a guardian. This is a mandatory document for travel and as essential as a passport or a visa. If one of the legal parents accompanies a child, the other legal parent has to approve a trip by signing a letter of consent.

The main purpose of a minor consent letter is giving permission to treat a child in force majeure. The guardian and the medical institution in the country of destination obtain a right to make decisions about pain-killers, first aid, transportation and other necessary operations to provide professional medical help.

Is it accompanied by other forms?

It is not accompanied by other forms, but it has to be revised and sealed by a notary.

There is a part in this letter where parents must write the dates of arrival and departure of the future trip. The letter should be prepared by the date of departure.

Parents write their child’s name, age and the destination of the planned travel. They also furnish this letter with departure date and return date. After that they should write the traveling adult’s name. They should also provide a telephone number for emergencies. Four parties are to sign this letter: both legal parents, a guardian and a notary.

Where do I send it?

A guardian or a parent who accompanies a child must keep this letter together with their travel documents and provide it whenever it is requested in the country of destination.

[intro music] Hi everyone, and happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you. Just wanted to take the time to wish you and your family all the best this holiday season and to remind you, during holiday times, people tend to travel more. If you have a parent or a grandparent, or anyone else who's traveling with your child, and both parents aren't gonna be there, it's a really good idea, if you're crossing borders, to have a consent letter. This letter will give the spouse or the person who's traveling with your child permission to cross the border with them and, sometimes more important, come back into Canada. It will also give them, if done right, the emergency, uh, medical authorization to make medical decisions in case something happens on the trip. Again, have a great Thanksgiving time and happy holidays and enjoy yourself. Be careful while you're out and away from home. [music out]
