Affadavit Required to Take Others' Kids & Even Your Own Out of the Country

Jump to last reply

In preparation for our upcoming trip to France I was going over tickets, passports, etc., today, and noticed for the first time on the itinerary that always comes in our ticket package from the consolidator we use a highlighted notice that if we are traveling out of the country with kids not our own, or if only one parent is traveling out of the country with kids, you MUST carry a notarized affidavit from the parent(s) not traveling saying you have his/her/their permission to take the kids abroad.

I had read and heard about this in the past, but this is the first time that the itinerary I received from the consolidator even mentioned it. I called United Airlines (our carrier for this trip) and they confirmed that it was entirely possible we might be stopped and even prevented from traveling without such affidavit, especially since my children have a different last name from mine and we are traveling with a friend of my daughter's as well.

Those of you traveling in such circumstances might want to take note. The last thing anyone wants is to get to the airport and find out you can't travel because of some new regulation you might never have heard about. For the past 9 years, I have traveled over to Europe with my children but without my husband (but we traveled home all together) and no one has ever said boo about it, but I get the sense the airlines are taking this issue more seriously now.
