A consular declaration is required for Italian citizens under the age of 14 who are traveling alone or unaccompanied by at least one of their parents.
The attestation is free of charge and is issued by the Consulate for all minors residing in the jurisdiction of the Consulate General of Italy in Toronto (Manitoba, Northwest Territories and Ontario, with some exceptions: for the city of Ottawa and the counties of Carleton, Dundas, Glengarry, Grenville, Prescott, Russel and Stormont it is necessary to apply to the Italian Embassy in Ottawa) upon express request of the parents, who may apply by presenting:
- accompanying declaration (template available at the bottom of the page)
- copies of the parents’ passports
- copy of the minor’s passport
- copy of the passport of the accompanying person(s)
- or, in case the minor is traveling alone, airline and flight details.
For information on minors traveling on Canadian passports, please consult the relevant Canadian government website.
If both parents of the minor are Italian or EU citizens, the application for an attestation of accompaniment, along with the above documentation, can be submitted by mail, to:
Consulate General of Italy
136 Beverley Street,
Toronto, M5T 1Y5, ON
Inside the envelope, include another pre-stamped, pre-addressed envelope for the return of the documents and consular attestation.
If either parent is a non-EU citizen (e.g., Canadian citizen), you must attend the Consulate in person to submit the documents listed above.
