    WHAT DOCUMENTATION SHOULD CHILDREN PRESENT?

    French minors under 18 years of age must travel with: (i) passport or (ii) National ID (in the event that their destination countries do not require passports).

    The family register is not a valid identity document for French citizens who are minors. Therefore, minors are not permitted to fly on planes, even within continental France, without a National ID.

    Italian minors under 14 years of age can only fly duly accompanied and with one of the following types of identification:

    An individual Italian National ID (national flights), which should be valid "per l'spatrio (for expatriation)" for international flights.
    An Italian passport (national and international flights).
    For international flights and along with the individual Italian National ID valid for international flights or a valid Italian passport, any minor under the age of 14 not accompanied by their parents or legal guardians should carry a travel permit (Dichiarazione di Acompagno”) stating the identity of their escort, which should be validated by the corresponding Italian local authority (“Questura local”). For more information, please check with the corresponding local Italian authority.

    Spanish minors under the age of 14 are exempted from proving their identity, for domestic flights in Spain where their identity is stated in the reservation. In such cases, the person who is traveling should duly identified and should take responsibility for the minors. In the event of reasonable doubt regarding the identity of these minors or of their companions, the following is requested:

    If they travel with one of their parents, the family book.
    If the person who accompanies the minor is not one of the parents or legal guardian, the minor should show a permit certified by a police department (by means of the appearance of the parents or legal guardian) in the name of the person who will be responsible for their custody during the trip, which will be corroborated with this person's National ID or passport.
    For international flights (EU or Other Countries), all minors (whether accompanied or not and regardless of their age) should show their National ID or valid passport, depending on their destination. If they are traveling alone, they should also have a permit (certified by a police commissioner, Civil Guard post, the courts, a notary public, or a mayor). Additionally, they should all comply with the requirements for the country that they are traveling to.

    Greek minors under 18 years of age who travel from Greece without their parents or legal guardians should bring with them: (i) a valid passport or (ii) a National ID issued by the government, together with a written permit signed by the parents or legal guardians. This permit should be certified by the Greek police.

    In any event, they will be asked to prove their age. Therefore, they will have to present valid travel documents at the boarding gate.

    Children between 14 and 18 who travel to or from Croatia without their parents or legal tutors should bring with them: (i) a valid passport or (ii) a National ID issued by the government, together with a written permit signed by the parents or legal guardians. This permit should be certified by a Croatian embassy or consulate or by local authorities. If not, an official sworn translation into Croatian will be required.
