Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

Fantastic hotel in Rio
Couldn't really fault the Windsor California, and I am so glad we stayed there whilst in Rio. Our main concern was safety, but we needn't have worried. The staff were beyond exceptional, and went above and beyond to be helpful. The place is gorgeous and the roof terrace with pool is a lovely place to relax. I would definitely go for the room with a beach facing view (it costs a little more) as the other option faces other windows which isn't great. There's a small but good gym and a steam room. Shout out to Douglas the manager who dealt with a complaint in a very efficient and dedicated manner. The food is good, the rooms are spacious and the showers are powerful,
