Generally the parent who retains full custodial powers of minor children does not need permission from the non custodial parent in issues relating to the child/children. The terms of the custodial order determine what a parent may or may not do concerning minor children. If there is not a specific stipulation pertaining to the issue at hand it would be prudent for the custodial parent to discuss the matter with a qualified attorney before taking any action. If you have sole custody, you can travel with your child unless there is a specific agreement in the divorce decree that you need special arrangements with your ex before international travel. Also, you should get each of your children a passport. Any large post office can assist you with obtaining a passport.

Where moving children around affects the ability of the other parent to visit the children it is very common for the law to require that the other parent either agrees to the move, or is compensated for the extra travelling to the new location in order to continue the visiting arrangements.

Full custody is never to be regarded as permission to block or hinder visitation.

Mom has full custody children don't want to go to dad's can mom force dad to take them when she goes on vacation?

A father who does not have legal custody of his children cannot be forced to take care of those children while the mother, who has custody, is on vacation. And really, it would not be good for the children to be left with the father if that father actually didn't want to take care of them, but was forced to do so by some form of legal coercion. Children should be cared for by someone who actually wants to care for them. They will get much better care that way.

Unlikely. Although Jon and Kate have both aired their differences on every media outlet that will have them, they continue to agree on the custody arrangements for their children. Their plan is to share custody, the children will remain at the family home while Jon and Kate will take turns parenting them. Kate's current plan is to use the home as her primary residence, and Jon has an apartment in New York City that he uses when it is Kate's turn to take care of the children.
