LETTER OF CONSENT FOR TRAVEL OF A MINOR CHILD
Because of increasing instances of child abduction in custody cases, and a growing
number of children who are the victims of trafficking or pornography, an immigration
officer, airline, or travel company may ask you to provide some form of letter of consent
if your child is traveling internationally with only one parent or with another adult, such
as a grandparent, aunt, uncle, etc. The sample letter below is a guide only. You may also
wish to have the letter of consent notarized.
