Plan your journey - is your passport valid?

14 August 2018

Before you travel please check if your passport is valid for long enough in order to enter the destination country. Countries can have different passport validity requirements, for example:

- minimum 6 months from arrival date
- minimum 3 months from arrival date
- valid on the date of arrival
- valid 3 months beyond the planned stay in the destination country

If you discover before travelling that your passport is not valid for long enough, you may check if the destination country will allow you to enter with a national ID card or emergency/temporary passport.
