Which documents are required if my child is travelling alone?
If your child is travelling alone as an unaccompanied minor, make sure that he/she has an ID card with a photo or a passport with a visa and health certification, if required. You also need to add a recent photo of your child. This does not need to be an official passport sized photo; a regular portrait photo is fine. Your child must be easily identifiable from this photo so it should show your child on his/her own.
In addition, you must fill in the Handling Advice Form at home and bring 3 copies to the airport; you can also fill in the form at the airport.
Some countries, such as France, Italy and Switzerland, have additional requirements for children travelling alone.
