Canadian Passport Expiry

edited October 2013 in - USA
I will be traveling to Hawaii in December 2013. My Canadian passport expires March 2014. Does the 6 months rule apply?
i.e. do I need to renew my passport so it is valid for six months while out of Canada?


  • What you actually need to be concerned about is the policy of the country you're visiting, not Canada. Different countries have different regulations about passport expiry dates: some require six months' validity, some ask for three, and others require only that your passport is valid for your intended period of stay.

    Luckily for you, the USA uses the latter policy with Canadian passports- as long as it is valid for your intended period of stay, you are fine. Enjoy your holiday!
