Unaccompanied minors

Unaccompanied minors

A child between 5 and 14 years of age (12 years for some airlines), who travels alone must be reported at the time of booking to the Airline Company. An airport agent will take care of him/her until boarding and will entrust him/her to the cabin attendant for the duration of the flight. The parent/guardian must remain at the airport until takeoff.

In order to benefit from such a status, anyone without the requirements of unaccompanied minor must make an explicit request for such service at the time of booking.

Rules for children under 14 years of age traveling alone

As of 04/06/2014 parents or guardians of children under the age of 14, in case the latter travel unaccompanied by at least one of them, intending to grant permission to a natural person or a transport company (such as an airline) must sign the accompanying declaration that will remain on the records of the police headquarters. 

The new procedure requires the issue of a paper declaration or the recording of the declaration directly on the passport of the minor. In the first case, the Police Headquarters will then issue a certificate of the declaration that the accompanying person will present at the border with the valid passport of the minor or, in the second case, will record the declaration on the passport of the minor.

Please note that before purchasing the ticket from the transport company it is necessary to verify that the latter allows for unaccompanied children  under 14 years of age to travel.
