Minors Traveling without Parents to Peru

Postby sbaustin » Tue Feb 02, 2016 2:19 pm

We are looking at having my brother's kids (6 and 9 - USA citizens) spend the summer with us in Lima. Logistically speaking it would work out the best if my wife and I pick them up in Miami and they travel back with us. My brother would travel to Lima at the end of the month to bring them back home. Does anyone know what if any paperwork might be required for them to travel with us?

Thanks.

Hi SB,

Your brother and his wife should prepare notarized letters stating dates of travel as well as your full names and Peruvian ID numbers, mentioning the family relationship. Make a couple copies. They ought to be in Spanish for use in Peru, and that would probably be suitable for when you leave the US as with them as well. It wouldn't hurt to speak to a consular officer at the US embassy just to double check.

They both go to a bilingual school, are fluent in spanish, and my sister in law wanted them to spend a lot of time in a spanish speaking environment plus we would enjoy having them here. Step 2 is finding stuff for them to do in the Peruvian winter... Probably my next post!
