Travelling with children

In order to prevent international child abductions, Mexican law requires that minors traveling without their parents, or with only one parent, present proof that they have their parents' authorization for travel. They should carry a notarized letter from the absent parent or parents authorizing travel into Mexico.

The minor must be carrying the original letter as well as proof of the parent/child relationship, usually a birth certificate. There are a few exceptions to this rule:

In the case that only one parent's name appears on the birth certificate, that parent's authorization is sufficient, along with presentation of the birth certificate.

If one parent has sole custody of the child, a court order must be presented.

If a parent is deceased, the death certificate should be presented.

Example Letter of Authorization for Travel

I (parent's name), authorize my child/children, (child/children’s name) to travel to (destination) on (date of travel) aboard Airline/Flight # (flight information) with (accompanying adults), returning on (date of return).

Signed by parent or parents
