Are you planning to travel with a minor child and need an apostille on a Travel Consent Form?
The purpose of signing a travel consent form is to allow your minor child to travel outside of the United States with another person (Example: Father, Mother, Grandparents, Aunt, Uncle, etc..).
You can obtain a travel consent form from the airline, travel agency, or you can find a sample online. Basically, the letter will state that you are giving permission to one or more people to take your child outside of the country. The letter should include travel dates, your name, the name of the child, the person the child will travel with, the country the child will travel too, passport numbers, and the return date. You will want to put as much information as possible include airline information.
The travel consent form will need to be signed and notarized by the person giving permission (Example: Father giving permission to mother to take daughter (minor) outside of the USA). Once the document has been notarized, it can then be mailed in to our office for processing. You will need to download our order form that corresponds with the state the form was notarized in.
We recommend that you find a notary who has at least five years of experience and one who will follow the notarial laws of their state. Improperly notarized travel consent letters will be rejected by the State causing delays and additional costs.
Obtaining an apostille on your travel consent form can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
