Sample Consent letter for minor children to travel outside of the US

Before using this form, check with the public carrier and the embassies of the countries into or through which the child or children will travel to determine if the carrier or the country requires a specific form or other information for a valid consent. 

Many carriers will not allow a child to travel without a notarized permission letter from the other parent.  Many carriers require that the form be their approved form.  

Be sure to make sure that everything is done prior to travel dates.

For information regarding this issue from the Department of State, see
