Stay on top of your documentation
It is very important to find out exactly what documentation your destination requires if you plan to bring children there. If only one parent is travelling with the kids, you may be required to bring proof of consent for travel from the childrens’ other parent. Adopted kids may also need their adoption documents carried along. This is usually done to curb child trafficking and/or unauthorized adoption, and may be exacerbated if your last names differ, or there is little resemblance between you and your kids.
