My husband is a French citizen (permanent resident of the USA) and is wondering if he can use his passport to travel to France next month. It was issued Oct 28, 2004 (it is an EU passport) and the date d'expiration is listed as 2014. However, his family is concerned he can no longer use the passport due to all of the changes that have occured since 2004. We've gotten conflicting info from the French Consulate when we called. One consulate member said she thinks he should get a new passport and another said it was still valid. And online research confused us further (talk of passport being good for travel for only 5 years, etc).
So, just want to verify if passport is acceptable for entry into France AND the USA??
