Consent to Travel Abroad with Minor

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I will be traveling soon with my 4 month old baby & I just stumbled on an article regarding consent for travel.

My son & I are going to the Philippines from the US to visit my husband. My husband is in the Philippines at the moment while our CR1 Visa Application is still on process.

Should I still provide a consent from him to travel with baby even though he will be waiting for baby & me at the final destination?

Thank you!

If the baby was born in the US i think the issue will be on the Phillipine side.

Here's what you need to know according to Customs and Border Patrol:

https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/268/~/children---child-traveling-with-one-parent-or-someone-who-is-not-a-parent-or

Basically, they say that it's better to get a notarized letter from other spouse. They say that they may not ask for it, but if they do and you don't have it, they may detain you until they can confirm that this isn't a case of parental abduction. They also say that it's good idea to have this document because other countries are even more strict than the US.

It is always a good idea to have notarized travel consent letter from the parent not travelling. My daughter requires a travel consent letter from me whenever she travels outside of Canada with her father and one from both of us when she flies to see me. I've also needed a travel consent letter from her father when I've taken her outside of Canada to see her father who was in Hawaii at the time (where we were meeting him.)

Even when you move, if your husband is not with you at that time, you should have a travel consent letter.
