    Rules and Guidelines in Handling Minor Traveling Abroad  

    • Under Republic Act 7610, it is the policy of the State to provide special protection to children from all forms of abuse, neglect, cruelty, exploitation and discrimination and other conditions prejudicial to their development;

    • The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)  in coordination with other government agencies like the Bureau of Immigration are mandated to implement the said law;

    • The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has sent communication that it shall issue only TRAVEL CLEARANCES but not PARENTAL TRAVEL PERMIT in the instances enumerated in the law;

    • The Bureau cannot process the parental travel permit as required by the rules implementing R.A. 7610 as it will defeat the system of check and balance;

    • The Bureau cannot also hamper the smooth travel of all concerned, including children below eighteen (18) years of age, unless there is a compelling reason to do do;
