Hi hubbers, my DH will take our DD1 overseas for a short trip during the next school holidays. Apart from her passport, does he need a travel consent from me because I'm not going with them? We don't want to be at the airport and find out that they can't travel because of missing documentation. Both our names are on her birth certificate. TIA

I don't think so... I travelled a lot when I was a kid with my mum and she never had anything like that. That was 20 ish years ago (yikes, I'm that old!) so not sure if things have changed.
Also passports don't have the parents names on them and you don't need to provide a birth certificate at the airport so immigration wouldn't know who your child's mother was or what the custody arrangement was anyway?

I would double check with your airline, and with customs and immigration. there can always be changes made that the general public might not be aware of. I had a situation with an exchange student when he was returning to his home country, so there can always be something different, that might be a concern. marie.

I think you only need consent forms if child is travelling by themselves. As your child will be with her dad there should be no issue

Check with the airline, but I think it's fine.
