Visa information

Autorisation de sortie de territoire pour les mineurs


L’autorisation de sortie de territoire est obligatoire pour les mineurs non accompagnés par un titulaire de l’autorité parentale. Elle devra être présentée par les mineurs aux frontières en même temps que leurs documents d’identité (passeport ou carte d’identité) et une photocopie de la carte d’identité d’un de leurs parents.

VOYAGEURS MINEURS BELGES

Lorsqu’un enfant mineur voyage à l’étranger seul, en compagnie d’autres personnes que ses parents, il est nécessaire d’établir une “autorisation parentale” attestant de l’accord des parents pour le voyage en question.

Ce document peut être demandé à votre commune.

VOYAGEURS FRANÇAIS MINEURS

L’autorisation de sortie du territoire (AST) d’un mineur non accompagné par un titulaire de l’autorité parentale a été rétablie depuis le 15 janvier 2017. Les formulaires d’AST sont disponibles sur le site Service Public. Plus d’infos : Service public.

Le jeune mineur non accompagné devra donc présenter les 3 documents suivants :

  • Pièce d’identité du mineur : carte d’identité ou passeport
  • AST signée par l’un des parents titulaire de l’autorité parentale
  • Photocopie du titre d’identité du parent signataire
