A Letter of Consent to Travel: A legal requirement in many countries

Traveling can be a complicated endeavor. Travelers need not only to deal with all of the complexities to do with visas, schedules, and flights, but they also need to make sure that they have a plan in place just in case laws and practices in a foreign country aren't the same as they are at home. One element that is frequently different between countries include differences in terms of allowable prescription medications, while some countries may differ in terms of what is considered to be acceptable public conduct. Sometimes, penalties can be harsh for what may seem to be a very insignificant transgression. For this reason, it's a good idea to read up on the rules and regulations of the country that you plan to travel to.

One such requirement that you may not be familiar with is a letter of consent to travel. This type of letter is required by some countries where a child is traveling alone, or where a child is traveling with a family member or only one of their parents. In addition to this letter, some countries may require a birth certificate or a copy of a birth certificate to be presented along with the letter. If your child is traveling overseas, you should ensure that you put together an appropriate letter of consent to ensure that complications do not arise. You should put together one of these letters even if you will be accompanying your child throughout the trip, or if you are going to a country where this letter is not a requirement. After all, it's always a good idea to be prepared for any situation that may arise, and you don't want to be caught out by misinformation or old information.

There are certain details that you should include on any letters of consent to travel. The first of these is to ensure that your child's full name is listed on the document. This should be the name as it appears on your child's passport or birth certificate. If your child has a nickname that they commonly go by, you may wish to include this in addition to the full name, but certainly not in place of the child's full name. If your child is very young, make sure that you teach them their middle and surname(s) so that they can repeat this information back when asked.
