Can a parent travel with a child?

Before travelling with a child, a parent should check their agreement or court order to see if they:

  • need the other parent's permission to travel
  • have to give the other parent information about their travel plans, such as flight details and contact numbers

To avoid delays or being refused entry or exit at the border, it is safest to have a travel consent letter signed by the other parent. A parent should also bring a copy of any agreement or court order that deals with travel.
