I will be flying to Canada on 08/01/2019 and staying two weeks for a skiing vacation, this includes hotel booking and return flights. I am a UK citizen and so is my 8 year old son.
I am divorced from his mother and will be travelling with just my son, looking on the canada.ca website they give the following information.
If a minor child is travelling with one parent only The parent should present:
the child’s passport a copy of the child’s birth certificate, and a letter of authorisation, in English or French if possible, which is signed by the parent who is not travelling with them and lists the address and telephone number of the parent who is not travelling, and a photocopy of that parent’s signed passport or national identity card.
If the parents are separated or divorced, and share custody of the child: the parent travelling with the child should carry copies of the legal custody documents. It is also best to have a letter of authorisation from the other parent who has custody to take the child on a trip out of the country.
However this presents a slight problem. I have his passport, my Ex wife has given me a letter of authorisation and I have a copy of his birth certificate however she refuses to give me a photocopy of her passport. She has written her passport number down on the letter of authorisation and refuses to listen that i need anything more.
Will this cause a problem, am i likely to be held up or denied entry ?
