  • Assuming you are a UK resident then no as long as you return at least 3 months before your passport expires.

    My friend reckons that she wont be able to travel to Europe because her passport will be too NEW! She thinks it has to be valid for 3 months BEFORE she is allowed to use it. I have suggested this is incorrect - but she's incredibly stubborn and reckons she has been told this by a Travel Agent. Can you comment please? Thanks

    starwars - your friend is delusional. If the passport is valid she can use it! There is no requirement that a passport be a certain age before it can be used.

    You must RENEW your passport. There have to be 6 months between exit from the country date and passport expiration date. For us passports, you can find order in just 4 days at www.travelvisapro.com

    Hi David and Expert,
    I am a Pakistani national in UK on student visa ,my passport expires in Jan 2011 while I have visa valid upto July 2012. My passport can be renewed by Pakistan embassy. Do I need to transfer my visa to the new valid passport(Is it necessary)? I am very comfortable with the idea of having two passport, with the new one as valid passport while visa the the expired certificate. Can you please clarify this case?

    hello everyone-
    i have a question. my us passport expires in january 2011 but i have to fly to dakar, senegal at any given moment for my husband's visa interview once we are given an interview date. i have reason to suspect that it will be any day now, meaning that the interview will be in september. i don't anticipate having an issue getting into dakar, because i have dual citizenship and my ecowas passport expires in 2012. my question is, will i have a problem coming back into the states? i plan on being there no longer than 10 days.
    also, i plan on getting a one-way ticket to dakar because my husband and i want to come back together on the same flight, so we are going to get our return tickets together in dakar. would you recommend that, or should i get a round-trip ticket where i can change the dates for free or for a small fee?
    thank you so much!

    Zoomerx - your passport needs to be valid for 3 months so I think you're ok.

  • Turkey Requires 6 months validity. It means your passport must be valid for 6 more months from your exit day to turkey.

    Can I enter the UK with my UK passport which expires in 4 days?

    Your best bet for traveling to Australia on short notice (for above posting) is to simply obtain an Electronic tourist visa (or, ETA). You do not need a passport valid beyond the 6 months of your arrival date, so long as your passport is valid with the return ticket date. However, in saying that, there must be proof shown to immigration upon entry. For more information on what is allowed, and who qualifies for a short-term electronic visa, visit Australian Visa Info, or EasyETA. In short, Australian ETA visas are a lot cheaper, especially for those of you interested in mostly tourist activities. On a side note, Nana, you MAY enter the UK with your expiring passport, so keep in mind the time change and don't arrive late otherwise you may have to explain the situation and wait in a waiting room until you can prove you are a citizen. Hope this clears some things up.

    My daughter is going on a school trip to France in July 2011 and her UK passport expires on 7 October 2011. Does it need to be renewed prior to her travelling?

    @Sheri, @June, @ kritters:

    If you are travelling on a UK / EU passport you can visit any other EU country if the passort is valid, no need for 6 months' validity. Other nationalities will in most instances need 6 months on the passport to gain entry to Turkey.

    I am a Canadian citizen. I am travelling to Ibiza in two days, staying three nights. My passport expires in September. There will NOT be three months left on my passport. It will be three months, LESS two days.

    Will I be turned away in Ibiza???

    Quick response required please!!!

    @Carlsberg - the official requirements are you need a minimum of 3 months. However, in practice, the chances of you being deported are very slim if you plead ignorance. It's a tough decision on your part I'm afraid.

    Cheers for quick response! I think I will jump hoops to get emergency passport. Wish me luck!

    My family are going to Egypt July 2011 & my daughters who is 10 years of age, has oly 10 months on her passport, runs April 2012, are we still able to use her passport or do I need to get a renewal.
    We have heard that as long as 6 mnths are on passport after our exit day from Egypt then her passport is still ok to use, just want to double check that this information is correct.
