flying with children & pets - Portuguese nationals and non-Portuguese residents

Children under 18 years and leaving or re-entering Portugal, unaccompanied by their father, mother or legal guardian, need a travel authorisation. This travel authorisation must be:

  • Signed by the father, mother or legal guardian; and the signature must be notarised if the father, mother or legal guardian reside in Portugal; or
  • The signature must be authenticated by a Portuguese embassy or consulate in the country where the father, mother or legal guardian reside.
  • This travel authorisation is also required when a person other than their father, mother or legal guardian accompanies minors. In such cases the travel authorisation must also clearly show the name of the accompanying person.
  • Non-Portuguese resident minors under 18 years and traveling alone may be refused entry if they do not have anyone in Portugal taking responsibility for their stay.
