Unaccompanied minors

We offer assistance and support before, during and after the flight for children from 5 to 17 years. Assistance to unaccompanied minors begins at the time they are received at the airport and ends when they are safely handed over to the designated person who is responsible for them at their final destination.​

This service does not include medical care and no staff member or collaborator is authorized to supply medicinal products to minors.

Please note the documents required by some countries for minors traveling​.

Brazilian minors

If the minor is traveling with one parent

If only one parent is traveling with the minor, judicial authorization obtained in a juvenile court must be presented. This authorization must include the legally approved signatures of both parents. To obtain this authorization you must file the following documents with the court:

  • Proof of residence.
  • Passport of the minor.
  • Copies of pages 1, 2 and 3 of the child's passport.
  • Original and a copy of the ID Card and Taxpayer Registration Card (Brazilian Cadastro de Pessoas Físicas or CPF) of both the mother and father.

If the minor is traveling alone​

In this case you must present an authorization letter, which does not necessarily need to have been endorsed by a judge, where the approval to leave the country is clearly expressed. This approval letter must be accompanied by the full names and ID numbers, as well as their recognized signatures, of each parent.
