You don't need to issue anything. If your children are minors, their uncle can simply accompany them to SLEC, USEM and CFO.

USEM and St. Lukes won't need anything issued from you. It is however different with the CFO. You need to issue a letter of authorization to the legal guardian allowing your minor children to be registered at CFO, it must be supported with an SPA too. If your children is not travelling and will be accompanied by somebody else, they'll need a travel clearance from the DSWD.

if somebody else is traveling with the child to the US other than you or your husband, then yes..you have to have a travel clearance. Best is to go to at your local DSWD to get more information about travel clearance especially the requirements. They have some listed in their website but there are specific documents sometimes that the local DSWD is asking than that listed in the website.

FYI: I assume based on your previous question that you are still in the Philippines? If you are, try to execute an SPA making your brother as your child's legal guardian. He will need it at the CFO together with your notarized authorization letter

Not to long ago a Filipino mother and USC husband had a K2 to follow and was traveling with the parents friend. They (friend and child) cleared immigration without anyone requiring a travel clearance. Here is how the conversation went.

Some will say that what you advacate is overkill, and others will agree with you in taking a "more is better" approach. This now is in the hands of the parents and what they want to do. I know what I would do.

DSWD website states the following:

Who needs a DSWD Travel Clearance to leave the Philippines?

• A Filipino minor traveling alone from the Philippines to a foreign country ;

A Filipino minor traveling from the Philippines to a foreign country accompanied by a person other than his or her parents.

Who does not need a DSWD Travel Clearance to leave the Philippines?

• A Filipino minor traveling with either parent, with his or her solo parent or legal guardian;

• A Filipino minor whose parents are in the Foreign Service

• A Filipino minor who holds a temporary or permanent resident visa of another country and is rejoining the parents in that country

• A child holding a foreign passport

Seems really like our government there is inconsistent with their policies. My minor children will be joining us here this July, and in the website it says

My children were issued an IR2, the DSWD in our province still required a travel clearance and a letter of consent was asked from me and their biological father. I was even surprised that they asked for a letter of support for the traveling companion making sure that we clearly state in the letter that all expense are paid by us.

Yes, you are correct in saying that there are so many inconsistently's causing one to run out and get enough paperwork to cover every situation causing OVERKILL. I recommend do was normal and cover some of your bases. You will never know what each and everyone will ask for as you travel out of the Phil.

Here are examples of the forms you will need. Re-type in word changing the reference to Los Angeles to blank and amend with who will have guardianship. Get the document notarized and have copies made. Two copies of each should do it.

1. http://www.philippin...nt (VV&WEG).pdf consent to travel with grandparent

2. http://www.philippin...tandConsent.pdf consent to get the passport

3. http://www.philippin...S/Legal SPA.pdf SPA consent
