Parents or a legal guardian travelling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is travelling with the child, he/she must present – in addition to the child's birth certificate and identity card with photo – a letter authorising the trip signed by the other parent with a notarised certification of signature. If the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorisation, a judicial authorisation is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before travelling for more information.
