Do I Need a Child Passport?
Anyone traveling internationally to and from the UK must have a passport, regardless if the reason for travel is for business or pleasure. This includes adults and children alike, even if they accompany an adult with a passport. Child passports are used for children that are age 16 years and younger. Unlike adult passports, child passports are only valid for five years at a time. When applying for a passport for a child, leave about 3 weeks to have the proper documentation processed, and for the passport to be sent. Applications for a child passport can be obtained either online, or by visiting the post office in person. A slight discount is available for processing documentation online. Obtaining a child passport is very similar to obtaining a passport for an adult and the proper identification must be provided. This includes a digital photo ID for online passports (or mailed photograph), correct certification documents, as well as parental approval and parental documentation for anyone who has legal guardianship of the child.
