MEXICO: REQUIRED OF EVERYONE 17 OR YOUNGER
PARENTAL PERMISSION FORM
Everyone 17 or younger is required by Mexican law to complete and carry a notarized Parental Permission
Form as part of their required documentation unless BOTH NATURAL PARENTS ARE TRAVELING with the
minor. The sample form at the bottom may be photocopied.
If only one natural parent is traveling with the minor, then the minor must carry the notarized form signed by
the parent who is not traveling.
If the minor is traveling without either parent, then the notarized form must be signed by both natural parents.
If both signatures of natural parents are unobtainable by reason of:
1. Single parent
2. One parent deceased
3. Parents divorced or legally separated
4. Legal guardianship – adoption
then the minor must carry additional documentation stating same (divorce papers, death certiﬁcate, etc).
Call Mexican Consulate ofﬁces if you require additional clariﬁcations or if you have additional questions. Interact
does not maintain a master list. Call directory assistance to obtain the current number.
Passengers denied entry into Mexico due to improper documentation will be subject to the standard cancella-
tion policy with no refund granted. It is the sole responsibility of the individual to obtain proper documentation.
