Under Aged Students
Olya Bezvushko

In accordance with the concern of children’s’ safety, many governments have initiated special requirements in case children under the age of 18 are traveling without both parents.  Students who will be minors at the time of their departure some airlines or immigration officials might require them to carry a letter that gives them permission to travel abroad.
Many countries started to require that documentary evidence in the form of a notarized concern to travel letter to be shown to permission and establish of the parent’s. These new requirements are specific due to different airlines and official authorities.

Border officials can reject to accept a permission letter of concert if it has not been notarized by a licensed notary, due to the fact that such letters or forms can be fake.  You can find examples of circumstances due to which you should have a notarized concern to travel documents.

     1. When child travel with one parent, the absence parent is expected to give a notarized concern. 
     2. When a minor is traveling alone with none of the parents, both parents have to provide notarized concern.  
     3. In case child has only 1 parent and this fact is marked in its birth certificate, than a notarized copy of the birth certificate may work as a proof that allows to travel

You should make few copies of the permission slip, keep these copies separately in a safe place and the original always carry with you while traveling.
