The holiday travel season is fast approaching, the summer vacation is just around the corner and now it’s the best time to start planning a getaway.
Since the issue of parental child abduction in custody cases is a growing matter and the numbers of children victims of kidnapping or trafficking are also increasing, travel companies, airline companies or immigration authorities may ask for a consent letter if a child is traveling alone, with only one parent or with another adult.
A travel consent form or a child travel consent form, as it is also called, can help avoid any unwanted issues.
123FormBuilder’s Travel Consent Form template is a great place to start and it can be easily modified to meet your specific needs. Whether the minor child is travelling internationally or out of the state, alone or with another adult, you can use form features to tailor the form according to your requirements.
These are a few examples of situations in which you might need a Travel Consent Form:
➳ Your child (anyone who is under the legal age of majority) is traveling alone
➳ The minor is travelling abroad , taking a bus, plane, train or a ship to their destination
➳ The minor is going on a school or a group trip without parents and needs the permission to travel with another adult
➳ The child is traveling with the one parent who has sole custody
➳ You share custody of the child and only one parent/ guardian will be traveling with the minor
Some basic fields to include in your Travel Consent Form:
➳ Information about the parent/ guardian- at least name and address
➳ Information about the child
➳ Travel information
➳ Signing information of the party who is giving permission for the minor to travel
➳ Witness information for authenticity
➳ Witness signature
By adding a Digital Signature field you’ll be able to get an electronic equivalent of the handwritten signature easily and securely. Don’t worry! It’s ESIGN and UETA compliant.
You can ensure a safe and pleasant trip by using the Travel Consent Form. As you can see, creating it is really as easy as 1-2-3.
