Trip Basics
Travel with Unaccompanied Minor Children


REQUIRED DOCUMENTS

Argentina

You will need a parental consent form that is in both English and Spanish (we can provide a template). The document should outline that your child has permission to travel with the Snofari Expedition leaders (we will provide these names and passport numbers).

  • Both parents must be listed and both must sign the document.
  • Please include the dates of travel for the time in Argentina.
  • Please include the passport number of the child traveling.
  • Please include the date of birth of the child traveling.
  • After the document is prepared, it must be notarized by the County Clerk.
  • The notary's commission must then be certified (called an "apostille"). To obtain the apostille, most states require that you send the notarized document with the request for an apostille to your state's Department of State. Snofari Expeditions staff will notify you of the requirements for your state.

You must include a cashierís check or money order made payable to "Consulate of Chile" for the filing fee. Snofari Expeditions staff will notify you of the address of the Consulate you should send your document to for processing as well as the amount for the filing fee.
  • Upon entry into Chile, your child will be required to pay US$100 to the customs official. This payment should be in cash.

 

MEDICAL WAIVERS AND INFORMATION

Please provide a document outlining that the Snofari Expeditions Leaders can seek medical treatment for your child if necessary. Please also include any special medical needs (allergies, current medications, etc.) your child may have.

There are no health entry requirements for Argentina, Australia, Chile or New Zealand, though you should insure that your child's vaccinations are up-to-date (especially Hepatitis A).
