In 25 August 2006 correspondence with the Honorary Consul General in Toronto, the Solicitor General of the Ministry of Legal Affairs in St. Georges, Grenada stated that state laws do not specifically address minor children travelling with only one parent. The Solicitor General explained, however, that where the child has a different surname from the parent he or she is travelling with, the other parent must provide written consent (25 Aug. 2006). If the child has the same surname of the parent he or she is travelling with, travel is generally unimpeded (Grenada 25 Aug. 2006).

This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim for refugee protection.
