If you are taking a minor child on board a cruise ship:
Whether you are a parent traveling alone with your child, or a grandparent, make sure that you have:
- A notarized letter from the parents (or other parent) giving permission for medical care and permission to take the child out of the country.
- Make sure you have proper travel insurance .
- Don’t assume; find out whether they need passports, visas, and other documentation.
For more information you can go to Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative
If you are traveling out of the country with a child:
- The child (even an infant) will need a passport.
- It is also a good idea to get a Limited Power of Attorney if you are traveling with your grandchildren, or if you are a single parent traveling alone with a child.
Rules and regulations change on a regular basis. Always check with the proper authorities before you leave the country.
