Passports & Travelling Out-Of-Country
It is up to you and your family/travel members to carry with you all required and valid documents when travelling abroad.
***All airlines require full passport name, date of birth, and gender for every passenger on international flights. Failure to provide correct information will result in you being denied boarding at the airport. You may also be refused entry into a country if your passport will expire within 6 months. Passports expiring within 3 months of departure, will most likely be refused at the airport for international travel.***
All participants are expected to be at the Airline check-in counter a minimum of 3 hours prior to your scheduled flight. International check-in typically takes much longer than traditional domestic check-ins. Players that will not be able to make this timeframe should contact their team leader in advance of the departure date.
Us children travelling without parent
If a child (under the age of 18) is traveling with only one parent or with someone who is not a parent or legal guardian, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) strongly recommends that the accompanying adult have a note from the non-traveling parent (or, in the case of a child traveling with neither parent, a note signed by both parents) stating “I acknowledge that my wife/husband/etc. is traveling out of the country with my son/daughter/group. He/She/They has/have my/our permission to do so.”
Consider using the Canadian "Consent Letter" in MS-Word format as an editable template (remove Canadian references...!!!). American government websites recommend getting the letter notarized. https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/children/consent-letter
