Minors travelling alone

Children aged 12 or above are usually allowed to travel alone. If required, airport and airline staff will make sure that the trip is stress-free and smooth for your child.

Most airlines provide an Unaccompanied Minor Service (UMNR) where the airline will take responsibility for a child aged 5-11 boarding the aircraft and being delivered to the destination. If you would like to use the UMNR service, please notify your airline well in advance. For most countries, written parental consent containing the travel details (when, from where and where to the child travels, parental information and contact details) is sufficient for a child travelling alone. However, there are countries that require notarised parental consent from both parents. Should you have any doubts, please review the immigration requirements of your destination countries.

Additional information about travelling with children is available at the homepage of Ministry of Foreign affairs.
