Do I need to renew my passport before my trip?
Question: My U.S. passport will expire on Feb 19 next year. I'm planning a trip to Hong Kong, China. Can I depart on Nov 20 this year and return on Dec 14? During my trip in Hong Kong, can I also travel to Taiwan or South Korea for 3-4 days?
To enter Hong Kong
, you will need a passport that is valid for at least one month beyond the date of your intended stay, adequate funds to cover your stay without working locally, and evidence of onward/return transportation. You do not need a visa for tourist visits of up to 90 days.
