Good afternoon, can you confirm if you can certify a Parental Consent to Travel Affidavit? I work here in Riyadh and will meet my wife and 15 year old son in Mauritius in June for a vacation. My understanding is that my wife needs to have this Affidavit in order to travel with our son. Can you advise what documents I need to present to you to in order to support the Affidavit and what your office opening are please.
