Unaccompanied minors may also fly with GOL


GOL offers unaccompanied minor services (non-exclusive), both during boarding and deplaning, for children over the age of 5 travelling unaccompanied by parents or a responsible adult. The service is mandatory for children from 5 to 12 years of age and optional for children from 12 to 18 years of age.

Would you like to enjoy this convenience? Then contact the GOL Customer Service Center or visit one of our stores. Check the fees below:


Domestic flights



International flights


The fee is for the cost of one passenger per segment.

If GOL only learns during check-in that the minor is not accompanied by an adult over the age of 18, the minor will only be allowed to travel after paying for the service.


Domestic Flights

If your child or your legal ward is older than 5 and less than 12 years of age and will fly unaccompanied on a domestic flight, an authorization issued by a family court will be required. The child must travel with:

Authorization from the family court;

  • Personal identification document;
  • Documento de identificação pessoal;
  • Completed Underage Minor Travel Authorization form.

Children from 5 to 12 years of age may use one of the following identification documents:

  • Valid passport;
  • Original or notarized copy of identification card (RG);*
  • Original or notarized copy of birth certificate;*

Children may not board by presenting a Police Report (B.O.). Children under the age of 12 who have traveled to a destination, but lost their documents before the return trip, will have to present a family court authorization to return, even if in the company of their parents.

If the unaccompanied minor is older than 12 but younger than 18 years of age, he/she will not need a court authorization to travel and may travel using:

  • Valid passport;
  • Original or notarized copy of identification card (RG);
  • Work permit.

Important: children or teenagers older than 12 and younger than 18 years of age departing from the state of Minas Gerais must present a valid photo ID, such as an identification card (RG). Birth certificates will not be accepted.


International Flights

Children and teenagers from 5 to 18 years of age may travel to other countries with:

  • Travel authorization signed by both parents or issued by a family court;*
  • Original valid passport;
  • Identification card (RG), only when traveling to MERCOSUL member countries.

Parental authorization must be presented in the form of two original documents with notarized signatures (from both parents). Only one original version of the court-issued authorization need be provided.



  • Children between 0 and 5 years of age may not board GOL flights unless accompanied by an adult.
