From what age does a person need a passport for international travel?

The age at which a person needs a passport for international travel can vary depending on the country and its regulations. In many countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and most European countries, every individual, regardless of age, needs their own passport for international travel.

Typically, infants, children, and adults require passports for international travel. Some countries may have specific requirements or considerations for passport applications for minors, such as additional documentation or consent from parents or legal guardians.

It’s important to check the specific passport requirements of the country you plan to visit or transit through, as well as the regulations of your home country, to determine the age at which a passport is required for international travel. You can consult the official website of your country’s passport issuing authority or contact the nearest embassy or consulate for accurate and up-to-date information regarding passport requirements for travelers of different age groups.
