Unaccompanied Minor

    Important information for passengers under the age of 18 travelling to the UAE.

    • All travellers under the age of 18 must bring a copy of their parents' passports as well as a form that their parents must fill out with pertinent information about their home address or U.A.E. address and who would be receiving them there.
    • Even if the minor or kid is travelling with another family member, a letter of consent from the parents or guardians is necessary along with a copy of the parents' or guardians' passport.
    • If immigration detects illicit behaviour and the information presented is insufficient to resolve that, the minor would be deported. In that situation, the standard INAD process would be applied, and fines would follow.

    The above-stated protocol only applies to unaccompanied minors arriving in the UAE.

    Who would be considered an Unaccompanied Minor passenger?

    Children between the ages of five (5) and twelve (12) are considered unaccompanied minors if not accompanied by an adult above the age of 18. SpiceJet may, at its sole discretion, accept unaccompanied minors upon payment of an additional fee. Children between the ages of 2 and 5 must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or above.

    If a child between the ages of 5 and 12 is accompanied by a young passenger over the age of 15, there are no charges.

    If a child between the ages of 5 and 12 is accompanied by a young passenger less than 15 years of age, the child will be considered an unaccompanied minor, and thus, the applicable fee will be charged. There would be no charge for the young passengers.
