Affidavit of Support and Consent to Travel

A travel clearance is required and shall be secured from the DSWD by the following Filipino citizens: 

1.    A minor traveling alone to a foreign country; 

2.   A minor traveling to a foreign country accompanied by a person other than his/her parents.

3.   A minor who is the subject of ongoing custody battle between parents will not be issued a travel clearance unless a Court Order is issued to allow the child to travel abroad with either one of his/her parents or authorized guardian.

The travel clearance protects minors who travel alone from human traffickers who take advantage on children’s vulnerabilities. To secure a travel clearance, an Affidavit of Support and Consent to Travel is often required.
