Do Travel Consent Letters Need to Be Notarized?
Legally, a travel consent letter does not need to be notarized.
However, both Canadian and U.S border services highly recommend that you notarize it.
This is because, when your child is at a border crossing, officers will judge whether or not your child is ok. If they have any concerns, they will begin an investigation. A notarized travel consent letter shows them the letter is authentic so they know your child is ok.

If the child is not travelling with either parent/guardian, then both parents/guardians need to sign the letter.

I highly recommend Brittany Ratzlaff with Clayton Heights Notary. We used Brittany for the purchase of our townhouse and had an excellent experience. As first time home owners, we had a lot of questions but Brittany and the staff at Clayton Heights Notary made the whole process quite easy!
Working with Brittany was a seamless, enjoyable experience. This was my 1st conveyance so I had no idea what the documents meant and she explained each document with great patience. I would highly recommend this Notary office and would definitely use them again in the future. Everyone we were in contact with at this Notary office was extremely professional and easy to deal with.
I had a short time frame to complete my place in 2 weeks. They took me no problem were very clear with paper work i needed. Out of dealing with the bank, appraisal, and then another bank. The most professional people I found was at this notary. Highly recommend them.
Fast and professional service. Brittany is fantastic to deal with. My entire family now uses CH and I’d recommend them to anyone in BC.
Clayton Heights Notary were amazing! They handled both the sale of our home and the purchase of a new one. They were diligent in follow up to ensure a smooth transaction and explained everything to us when we were signing with regards to paperwork in a way that we could understand clearly. I highly recommend them and wouldn't hesitate to use them again in future dealings.
First time ever leveraging the services of a notary public. Very impressed with my experience here. I found them to be professional and prompt. I will need to leverage a notary public again in the not-too-distant future and won't hesitate about going to Clayton Heights Notary. Highly recommended.
