Passengers under the age of 18 travelling without parents / guardians to / from Germany
In accordance with German law, minors under the age of 18 entering / departing from Germany alone (including transit passengers*) must prepare a consent letter signed by a parent / guardian.
Applicable passengers should contact their nearest German embassy, consulate or honorary consul.
If you are a German resident, we request you contact your nearest Federal Police office or relevant public institution.
* Before proceeding to their boarding gate, all passengers arriving in Germany taking a connecting flight to another country covered by the Schengen Agreement must go through entry procedures at the first German airport at which they arrive.
Entry / departure procedures may take an extended amount of time if the passenger does not possess a letter of consent.
However, please note that carrying this letter does not guarantee permission to enter / depart from the country, as this is at the discretion of immigration officer.
