Traveling only with daughter

Recommended Posts

I'm going abroad with one of my daughters, who is 16.

A couple of years ago, I was told I needed a letter from the amphur then translated into English, saying that her mother agreed.

 

Does anyone know if this is still required for a kid over 16?

Does the mother agree?

Because as far as I know the mother could create a huge problem for you if she does not agree.

You could be accused of kidnapping your daughter.

It definitely won't hurt to have that letter to avoid any trouble (in more than one way).

this is your biological daughter and you need a letter?  what planet am i living on????  

 

but i'm guessing you don't live with her mom, and who knows what other information i might have to assume to even guess at a solution that might be wrong.  

 

just get 10,000 letters and give money to everyone.....sorted

Yes, my daughter and I live with her mother, who agrees. But I thought at 16, it might not matter of she agrees or not.

 

I believe the people I know who had problems, had them when entering their home country. In Bangkok airport, once they made me call the mother.

You are lucky, I've known some to be denied exit.

I'll try to find the old form, which might say what age they have to be to avoid this letter. Should have it on some computer.

Otherwise, I'll call the amphur.

@Neeranam

A 'Talking head' video on your smartphone wouldn't do you any harm but as stated earlier I have never had any probs.
