Depending on individual circumstances, other documentation may be required in order to travel. For example, previous convictions may prevent entry into the USA and other countries and a special permission or pardon may be required. You should also establish whether you will require any other document such as a permanent resident card, work permit or the like. Legal advice may be required before making travel arrangements.
Children travelling alone or without both parents will require special documents. In general a child under 18 travelling alone out of Canada will require legally certified documentation signed by both parents permitting the child to travel alone or with an adult (example a relative or teacher). A child travelling with one parent will require legally certified documentation of consent from the absent parent. In addition separation or divorce decrees or a death certificate may be required in certain circumstances. Legal advice should be sought where there is any doubt as to status or the consent required. The Dominican Republic is particularly strict with children under 13. Amongst other things, if they do not have the same last name as and are not accompanied by, both parents, they may be required to have permission letters translated into Spanish and notarised and legalised by the Dominican Consulate. Enquiries should be directed to the Dominican Consulate at 416-739-1237 or 514-284-5455.
