How to Apostille a Travel Consent Letter

We provide fast Apostille service for a Travel Consent Letter notarized in any of the 50 U.S. States and the Secretary of the District of Columbia. Because of the unique requirements of each State, we recommend that you mail to our office the original notarized document and not a copy.

It’s important to work with a professional notary with years of experience and one who will follow the notarial rules and guidelines in their State.  For example, in the State of California, a notary will typically attach a California Acknowledgment to the signed page.  We also recommend the notary to place his/her seal next to the signature(s).

A Travel Consent Letter is typically prepared by the parents of the child.  This document should first be written in English, notarized, and Apostilled before it’s translated by a certified translator into the other language.  Some Secretary of State’s may reject your document if you have not provided a notarized English translation.  In order to avoid any delays, please follow the steps outlined above.

The airline and/or travel agent can assist in what should be written in the document.  You can also find samples online.  Please be detailed in your documents in order to avoid any confusion.

If the country requesting your Travel Consent Letter is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, then your documents may require further authentication through the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. and legalization through the Embassy / Consulate office. Our Staff in D.C. can handle your Department of State and legalization requests quickly.

Apostilles can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
