Renewing Passport for Trip to Italy with 3 months expiration date
by: Anonymous

Question: Greetings,

I am traveling with my mother to Italy next month and just found out her passport expires August 27th, 2017. We leave for Italy May 26th and come back on June 4th. She will technically have 3 months left on her passport when we leave, but it will be less than three months to expiration date when we return. Does she still need to renew her passport? We are staying in Italy the entire trip. I am nervous to renew her passport because we have to give up her current one to do so, and expediting renewals takes 2-3 weeks and that is cutting it close and if it takes longer than she won't be able to go on the tip. Your advice and guidance is truly appreciated. Thank you!

Answer: Italy requires at least 3 months validity remaining on a U.S. passport counting from the date of departure. Since your mother's passport falls short of this requirement, she needs to apply for a renewal before your trip.

You are right in saying that expedited service via mail may be cutting it too close to your travel date. We recommend applying in person at a regional passport agency. To do this, you need to call 1-877-487-2778 and set up an appointment 2 weeks before your trip. In addition to the renewal requirements, your mother also needs to present evidence of immediate international travel like an airline reservation. Applications submitted at a regional agency are processed in 1-8 business days.

If your mother cannot travel to a regional agency, you may apply via a private passport expediter. These companies can get the application processed in as fast as the same day with very little effort on your part.

Question: My husband and I both have had passports for the past 10 years. Mine expired this february '17 and his expires this July '17. We are both in the process of getting a new one and have already booked a vacation to Antigua in July '17. Does this mean we cannot go now because we won't have had our new passports long enough?

Answer: U.S. passports can be used for international travel to any destination from the day they are issued. There is no requirement concerning time from the date of issue. Some countries have entry requirements concerning how much validity remains on a passport. For example, U.S. citizens must have a U.S. passport that is valid for 180 days following their departure date to enter Antigua. This means a passport must still have at least 6 months of validity remaining on it before a visitor will be allowed to enter.

Secondly, the U.S. Department of State's website states that a U.S. passport is required to have at least 6 months of validity beyond your stay in order to visit Mexico. Yet, in the "Entry, Exit and Visa Requirement" section states only that "You must present a valid U.S. passport or passport card in order to enter Mexico."

Even still, the Consular Section of the Embassy of Mexico confirmed through e-mail correspondence that additional validity is NOT required to enter Mexico. The message stated the following.

"Your passport only needs to be valid during the time of stay in Mexico. When you are traveling to Mexico you will need a valid passport to enter and exit the country."

Entry Criteria for Prague, Budapest & Turkey
by: mandy

Question: My passport expires at the end of December. I will be traveling to Prague, Budapest and Turkey. Do these countries have entry requirements greater than 90 days?

Answer: Both the Czech Republic and Hungary are party to the Schengen Agreement. They require your passport have at least 3 months of validity beyond your departure date.

Foreigners wishing to enter Turkey must carry a passport or travel document with an expiration date at least 60 days beyond the expiration date of their visa, visa exemption, or residence permit. Therefore, as Turkish tourist visas are generally valid for 6 months, U.S. citizens should have a passport that is valid for eight months beyond entry date. Passports should have enough blank space to allow for Turkish entry and exit stamps. If there is not enough space for entry and exit stamps in your passport, you will be denied entry into Turkey.
