/ Proof of Parental Responsibility - Dubai
I've read that it is advisable to have proof of parental responsibility if your kid has a different surname to you (there's 3 of us going - me, gf and her 13 year old son, we all have different surnames).
Any idea what form this 'proof' has to take? Foreign Office and UAE Embassy websites don't give any detailed info. Would his birth certificate do the job?
Don't know what Dubai mean by Parental Responsibility but assuming it's the Children Act definition then provided you are named on his birth certificate you have it. She has it by virtue of being his mother and this will be proved by the birth certificate.
Sorry, just re-read and realised he's not your son. Birth certificate would evidence your girlfriend's PR but since you don't legally have it you can't evidence it. I would have thought this would be enough though. I can't imagine you'll be the first people in this position to have entered Dubai.
I've never actually had it queried, but I carry the kids birth certificates if I'm travelling "alone" with them (they have my husband's surname, but I didn't change mine when we married). I can't think what else you'd use.
He'll be carrying the weed and porn so I obviously don't want him to get deported...
