Spanish resident children under the age of 18 years who are travelling without their parents/legal guardians on a valid national identity card on flights between European Economic Area (EEA) countries must have a form (collected from their local police station) of written authorisation to travel from their parents. This form will need to be presented at the passport control.
French children under the age of 18 years who are travelling without their parents/legal guardians are not required to have a written authorisation to travel from their parents. They are required to present a valid passport or national identity card only. This applies to any flight/route.
Italian minors under 14 years travelling with the new style ID Card “Carta d‘identità” with one or both parents can travel on EU/Schengen flights with no additional documentation required. If travelling with neither parent with the new style ID card they should be in possession of an „Affido“.
Italian minors under 14 years travelling with only one parent OR Guardian must be in receipt of an 'Affido' which must be signed by the parent who is not travelling.
Portuguese routes: Portuguese nationals and alien residents under 18 years leaving or re-entering Portugal, to or from a non-Schengen member state unaccompanied by their father, mother or legal guardian need a travel authorisation. This must be signed by both parents or legal guardian with the signature notarised if the parents or legal guardian reside in Portugal; or authenticated by a Portuguese embassy or consulate in the country where the parents or legal guardian reside. This travel authorisation is also required when minors are accompanied by a person other than their father, mother or legal guardian. In such cases the travel authorisation must also clearly show the name of the accompanying person. Foreign minors under 18 years and traveling alone may be refused entry if they do not have anyone in Portugal taking responsibility for their stay.
