What is a Travel Consent Form?
A Travel Consent Form is a legal document which proves to travel authorities that you have the required permissions to travel with a minor child.
A Travel Consent Form:
Proves to authorities and foreign officials that a minor child has consent from BOTH of his or her parent(s) or guardian(s) to travel.
Helps to prevent problems, delays, and cancellations at the border or airport.
Is essential for all minor children traveling without parents or guardians, or only one parent or guardian.
Can be used by schools, churches, sports teams and other organizations that need a minor child Travel Consent form.
The Government of Canada strongly recommends that children traveling abroad carry a consent letter proving they have permission to travel from every person with the legal right to make major decisions on their behalf, if that person is not accompanying the children on the trip. For example, children traveling alone, with groups or with only one custodial parent should travel with a consent letter.
The purpose of a consent letter is to facilitate the travel of Canadian children while preventing their wrongful removal to foreign countries.
