Is Your Valid Passport Valid? Maybe Not!

U.S. Passport

Traveling with a U.S. passport can get complicated, depending on where you are traveling. The expiration date of your passport is on the inside front cover, next to your photo. But in some countries they will refuse entry to you for having a passport that expires in less than 3 or 6 months! Custom officials are strict about this, even if you have a passport with five months and three weeks of validity left, you will be S.O.L., friend! The U.S. Dept. of State recommends that you renew your passport  nine months before it expires. Grown up folks need to renew every ten years, kids age 15 and younger need to renew every five.

Travelers are responsible for knowing the entry and exit rules for the country they want to visit. I did some research for you. Here’s a great source for passport information.

Another very helpful resource Is the U.S. Government’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program. It’s a free service, available to U.S. citizens traveling to, or living in, a foreign country. It allows you to enter information about your upcoming trip so the U.S. Dept. of State is better prepared to help you in the event of an emergency. If you are visiting more than one country on your trip, make sure you look up the entry and exit requirements for each destination!
