Entry and exit of unaccompanied minors or minors accompanied by only one parent or persons who are not their parents or who do not have parental responsibility

At Zurich Airport border control, the protection of minors is a priority. The Canton of Zurich police force therefore recommends that minors carry with them a declaration of consent signed by the parents or persons with parental responsibility to avoid any possible suspicion of child abduction, for example. This document should contain the personal details and telephone number of the above person or persons. Other information such as date of travel, destination, duration of stay and reason for travelling is also useful.

The Canton of Zurich police force does not have its own consent form, nor are there specific formal requirements in terms of how consent is to be given. The declaration of entry consent does not require any specific form.

The requirements of the destination country for entry and departure may vary. You can obtain information on the entry requirements for your destination country from your travel agent or consulate or from the destination country’s embassy. On the website of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs FDFA, you can find the contact details for the consulates and embassies of foreign nations in Switzerland.
