A Travel Consent Form is used when a child under 18 years old is travelling alone, with only one parent/legal guardian, person, or with an authorized group. This document notifies authorities or other interested parties that a parent or legal guardian has given their consent for the child to travel without them. This document can be used for domestic travel inside India or international travel across borders. Because of increasing instances of child abduction in custody cases, and a growing number of children who are the victims of trafficking or other abduction, an immigration officer, airline, or travel company may ask parents to provide some form of a letter of consent if a minor child is travelling internationally with only one parent or with another adult, such as a teacher, group trip leader, or grandparent.

How to use this document?

Using this document, a parent can name the children, provide information about their passport if the travel is happening internationally, describe their travel circumstances and the people accompanying them, and outline the travel itinerary. This document also includes the option to describe the child's allergies or special medical needs. Finally, this letter form contains contact information of the adult co-traveller, if applicable, and parents or legal guardians in case someone needs to be contacted in the event of an emergency. During the signing of this letter, witnesses should also sign the letter, as this is required by some airlines. Instead of witnesses, the letter can be notarized by a notary public to support its authenticity.

The copies of this letter shall be kept by the child, co-traveller, organization, and consenting parents or legal guardians.

Applicable law

Although not required by law, immigration officers, law enforcement officers or agents may detain a child if they suspect an abduction or kidnapping has taken place. By travelling with a Travel Consent Letter, these officers will have the necessary contact information and further assurance that no abduction or kidnapping has taken place. Need to check the rules and regulations of the particular airlines, agencies, states, or countries for any additional documentation requirements.
