18 and under do need the consent form. Go to where they have Parental Consent forms . You'll want form #1

I know I've seen several but can't find them on the boards. Boy, if only the search engine worked! Here is a link to one generic form. You'd just have to customize it with names, dates, itinerary, etc. I don't think there is one, official form, just having something notarized with the details should be good.

Hope this helps.


The reason Arlie should be concerned is that going through customs with a minor child (and that definition varies by country, but 18 is a good guess) with two adults that have a different last name is problematic without good documentation. The current history of one parent taking their child without permission makes officials very cautious. I think Arlie is very smart to add this documentation.

I see DFritz posted a site. Good, you have a choice, and I'll freely admit that is a very good one. I bookmarked it for my future use.
