The requirement for a minor not accompanied by a person holding parental authority to have an exit authorization permit (AST/autorisation de sortie du territoire) was reintroduced on January 15, 2017. This new measure applies to all minors whose ordinary place of residence is France. It also applies to all trips, taken individually and in a group (school trip, vacation camps, language program stays, etc.) involving a minor leaving French territory without being accompanied by a person holding parental authority.
