mondassur autorisation sortie territoire

If your minor child intends to leave French territory for any reason, some precautions should be taken :

  • In all cases, do not forget to take an international travel insurance for your child.
  • Since January 15, 2017, a minor child who lives in France and travels abroad alone or without being accompanied by one of his parents must be issued with an authorization to leave the country. That document is a form established and signed by a parent (or legal guardian).

This provision, which was abolished in 2012, is now part of the law for prevention of radicalization and the fight against terrorism.

French or foreign parents living in France

If the child lives in France and his parents are either French or foreigners, he must provide the following documents at the border:

  • Valid ID of the minor: identity card or passport plus a visa if the country of destination requires it (if you don’t know you can check the country files on www.diplomatie.gouv.fr )
  • Copy of identity card or passport of the signatory parent - The title must be valid or expired for less than 5 years
  • Original of Cerfa form 15646 * 01 signed by one of the parents with parental authority

If the child lives abroad

A French child who is ordinarily living abroad and who is staying in France does not need to provide proof of leaving the country when leaving France. On the other hand, he must present a valid identity card or passport accompanied by a visa if required by the country of destination.

A foreign child who lives abroad and who stays or passes through France also does not have to submit an authorization to leave the country. He must be in possession of his ID and travel documents required by his country of destination.

For which countries is the Authorization mandatory?

This document is required whatever the country visited: Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Italy, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, England ... regardless of the destination of the child. From the moment the minor crosses the French border, the authorization to leave the territory is required.

Who should sign the Authorization?

The signatory must be the custodian of parental authority. In the event of a divorce from the parents, if both parents have this status then either of them will complete and sign the document.

If a conflict exists and one of the parents objects to the child's departure from the territory where he lives, the child may resort to an opposition procedure (OST) in the event of an emergency or to a Territory (STI).

A Japanese tradition

mondassur cerisier

Do you know o-hanami? If the expression is not famous for us, it is impossible to miss it if you make a trip to Japan between March and April. Translated from Japanese, O-hanami means "contemplation of flowers". That hobby is very popular in Japan. People there give a special place to the beauty of nature and take time to look at the flowers and leaves throughout the year.

Sakura, the Queen of Flowers

mondassur cerisier0
But the queen of flowers, the one that makes all Japanese people addicted and makes so many foreigners dreaming about is cherry blossom, also called Sakura. At the beginning of spring, it is sometimes whole meadows and mountains that are covered with the magnificent pale pink and so recognizable Sakura. However, the flower is rare and only shows the tip of its nose about fifteen days a year throughout the archipelago. Each year, the Japanese media lend themselves to the game and broadcast a map of approximate dates of flowering area by area.

This year, many newspapers talk about the small town of Kawazu for being the first city full of cherry blossoms with thousands of trees. The whole gives a fairy-like spectacle which is very prized by photographers.
If you are going to Japan, consider buying a good travel insurance with good guarantees.
