Travel Consent Letters

Equip your child with the tools to travel safely

Ensure Your Child’s Trip Goes Smoothly

A travel consent letter needs to be signed by the parent(s) that is not traveling with your child if your child is travelling abroad. This letter shows officials that your child has your consent to travel without you.

This process only takes a few minutes
(we promise)

A travel consent letter needs to be signed in front of a notary. The process only takes a few minutes, so please don’t put this task off!

When Is It Needed?

When your child is travelling alone or with one parent

Who Signs It?

The parent(s) that isn't accompanying the child

How Long Does It Take?

A few minutes!

Why Is It Needed?

It shows officials your child has consent to travel without you

Ensure your child doesn’t get stuck in a rainy Vancouver airport, when they could be in sunny Mexico!

If your child (yes, anyone under the age of 19 is considered to be a child – even if they are bigger, taller and, of course, smarter than you) is travelling outside of the country with only one parent or without either parent, they might need a travel letter.

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.

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!
