Minors traveling

From Colombia

The new Code for Children and Adolescents establishes additional information for minors departing the country.

On May 8th, 2007 Law 1098 of 2006 came into force, by which the Code for Children and Adolescents was issued. Article 110 paragraph 1 reads as follows:

When a child or adolescent is going to leave the country with one parent or a person other than their legal representatives, they must obtain prior permission of the person who they will not be traveling with, or from them both, duly authenticated by a notary or consular authority.

The Law also requires this new information: this permission must contain the destinations, the purpose of the travel and the date of departure and re-entry to the country.

If you want more detailed information about minors departing Colombia, please see the conditions in Migración Colombia and also the authorization form for minors departing the country.

Please note that the information contained in the links above is provided by the migration authorities and in no case is the content the responsibility of the Airlines and is only provided as a guide to help passengers.​
