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 travelling 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 travelling 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.

For your convenience, CanLaw offers an Create Your Travel Consent Form Online interactive form that you can complete in order to generate a consent letter that fits your specific needs and situation

Who Needs a Travel Consent Form?
When a minor child is travelling without both parents a Travel Consent form will be required by the airlines and customs and immigration officials.

Failure to produce this document could easily result in your being denied boarding or travel or entry to the destination country.

The travel consent form should include the destination, dates of travel and contact information for the other parent.

Any adult travelling with a minor child needs to have written, notarized proof that you have the legal right and permission to take a minor child on a trip, either within or out of Canada.

A notarized travel consent form is most acceptable by airlines, border authorities and customs agents.

This applies to all adults travelling alone with a minor child including

  • Custodial parent
  • Non-custodial parent
  • Legal Guardian(s) of a minor child travelling without parent or guardian
  • All other adults (schools trip supervisors etc) travelling with the child
