Travel authorization for minors

The Travel Authorization for Minors is a document containing an express authorization provided by those adults holding the parental rights or legal gardianship of a child under the age of 18.  Such authorization is mandatory with no exception to either obtain a new passport or renew one.

This document, which has to be signed before processing a new passport or renewing one, requires the presence of those adults legally responsible for the minor in question, who will have to present the following documentation:

  • Personal ID, such as the passport or Cedula de Identidad (ID)
  • Proof of parenhood,  which can be either a birth certificate or the family book where the minor is registered.
  • Death certificate of one of the parents, should it apply 
  • Document of legal guardianship, should it apply
  • Personal ID of the minor

This document is free of charge when it is done together with the passport. Should it be done to be sent to Uruguay or any other place where the passport will be issued, the consular cost is US 28,00, and can be paid in cash, or a Money Order or Cashier's Check.

Starting June 28th 2012 the consular fee for this paperwork is US$ 14.

It is recommended to coordinate an appointment, so the travel authorization can be done and delivered when applying for it, be it to be sent immediately to wherever it needs to be sent, or for the purpose of issuing a new passport or renew one.

PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT THE TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION IS INDIVIDUAL AND CAN ONLY INCLUDE ONE CHILD

In those cases in which exceptional circumstances should be considered, and without renouncing to demand the maximum guarantees required by law, the Consulate General might authorize that a Traveling Authorization be signed before a Notary Public, and then validated by the County Clerk or the Secretary of State. Should this be the case, please contact the Consulate General to explain the situation and request an authorization.
