The Foreign Office (FCDO) has clarified rules for under 18s travelling alone to Barbados.

In an update on its website, the FCDO said unaccompanied minors must have a written consent letter from a parent or legal guardian, signed and sealed by a ‘notary public’.

A notary is a specialist solicitor authorised to approve documents for use in other countries. You can search for a notary here.

The letter from the parent or guardian must state the length of stay, identify an authorised adult who will receive the child on arrive and include their contact details.

A legal guardian must attach official proof of guardianship.

Minors travelling with an adult other than their parent or legal guardian must also have a letter of consent from a parent signed and sealed by a notary.

The letter must indicate the duration of stay and must identify the accompanying adult and must have their address and phone number. The letter should also identify an authorised adult who will receive the child on arrival if different to the accompanying person, with their address and phone number.
