Question: Both of my children’s passports expire on Oct 16. We bought airline tickets for Jun 22-Jul 28. Airline did not let them in for they are not within the 3-month deadline BUT have a valid return to the US ticket (Jul 28). Airline won’t refund our money back. Is there some way to contest this?

Answer: As party to the Schengen Agreement, Greece requires that U.S. citizens present passports that will be valid for at least 6 months counting from the bearer's date of departure from their country. If your planned exit from Greece is July 28, their passports should be valid until October 28. Your children's passports fall 12 days short of this requirement.

Question: My daughter is flying out of Minneapolis to Madrid on June 22 and her passport expires October 19. Is her passport going to be valid? Are you completely sure of your answer?

Answer: The State Department recommends having at least 6 months validity remaining on U.S. passports when traveling to Europe. Having said that, only 3 months is required by countries party to the Schengen Agreement. France, Germany and Spain are party to this agreement. The 3 months is counted from the bearer's intended date of departure from any country in the Schengen area. As long as your son can present proof of onward travel/return ticket to the United States, he should be able to travel with his current passport.

Please note that airlines may have different requirements from what the State Department has published, please contact them for confirmation.

Question: I will be traveling into Madrid (Spain) from USA, then into Porto (Portugal) , and then by train to Lisbon (Portugal). I will be returning to Barcelona (Spain) for a few days before heading home to USA. My departure date is April 2nd, and the date my passport expires is July 2nd this year. Is this safe or too risky?

Since you still have a couple of months before your trip, we recommend that you renew your passport to avoid all possible issues altogether.

Question: I am going to Paris January 14-22 and my passport expires on July 19. Will I be okay? Sometimes I see that I need to have 6 months validity on my passport and sometimes I see 3 months. If they give me trouble, what can I do to make sure I get on the plane?

The six months validity is a recommendation since some Schengen officials assume that you will be staying for the entire 90 day visa-free stay.

Your passport still meets the requirement so you should not have any trouble. In case questions arise, you may present proof of your departure from France (airline tickets).

Passport expires in November, traveling in July
by: Anonymous

Question: Hello,

I am looking into renewing my passport, as it expires on Nov 4 of next year. I am getting married mid-July and traveling to St. Maarten (entering on Dutch side through airport) one week after until Aug 3rd. I will be changing my name once married and so my predicament is two-fold:
(1) If I renew now to be clear for travel to St.Maarten, it will still be in my maiden name ($110 fee for renewal) and then if I renew to reflect my married name, after we return from St. Maarten but before a trip in December 2019, I will be paying another $110 for renewal, correct?

(2) If I wait to renew until after our return in St.Maarten to reflect my married name, without previously renewing it, will I be in the clear to return to the US since the expiration date is literally 3 months and 1 day after my expected return date from St. Maarten? (Return from St.Maarten on Aug 3 and current passport expires on Nov 4)

I'm not sure what option is best and least expensive, while still being able to travel and return home!

Thanks!

Answer: Hi! You can go either way.

1. You may choose to renew renew your passport now. If you apply for the name change within a year of issuance, you do not have to pay the $110 renewal fee.

2. You may also choose to renew after your trip. According to the State Department's fact sheet on Sint Maarten, U.S. passports only need to be valid for the duration of the bearer's stay. If such is the case, there should be no problems entering the country. Even if you follow the Dutch requirement of 3 months beyond one's departure date, it should still be okay. Also, you may re-enter the United States up to 11:59PM of your passport's expiration date.

I'm confused, is it 3 months or 6 months?
by: Anonymous

Question: My U.S. passport expires July 14 2018. I will be traveling to Germany and staying there until April 10, 2018. So my departure date will be right at the 3 month marker. After reading forums, some say it's 3 months from the departure date, and others saying the 6 months is enforced and you can be denied entry in Germany. Which is the the current information?

Answer: Germany is party to the Schengen Agreement. As such, the country requires that U.S. passports be valid for at least 3 months counting from the bearer's planned date of departure.

Most European countries expect you to stay for the entire 90 days allowable visa-free stay which is why they require you to have at least 6 months validity on your passport. As long as you can provide proof of onward travel, you should be able to use your passport for your upcoming trip.

Question: I am a U.S. passport holder. My passport expires in November of 2018. I will be going to Europe in June (7-23) -- landing in London and from there flying to Riga, Kiev, Budapest, Athens, Sofia back to London (in that order) then back home. Would I be ok? I have 3 pages left to have my passport full so wanted to do that before getting a new one. Bulgaria and Ukraine only required 3 months on the passport but I'm confused with Greece and the others. Thanks!

Answer: Hello, Omar. Latvia (Riga), Hungary (Budapest), Greece (Athens) and Bulgaria (Sofia) are party to the Schengen Agreement. As such, they require at least 3 months remaining validity beyond your intended exit from the Schengen area. Although Ukraine (Kiev) is not a Schengen country (yet), they have the same requirement. Only the United Kingdom requires that your passport be valid for the duration of your stay.

Your passport meets all your destinations' validity requirements. However, each country requires one page per entry stamp. Because you only have 3 pages left, you need to renew your passport before your trip. We recommend requesting for the 52-page passport instead of the regular 24 pages since you are a frequent traveler.

April Expiration

Question: My U.S. passport expires on April 22, 2018. I am in the process of planning a last minute, week-long trip in February. I was thinking somewhere in Europe, a Caribbean Island, or Mexico. It seems like I may have issues in most European countries. Is that true? Would my passport be valid in Mexico or most of the Caribbean?

Answer: You are correct, most European countries, particularly those that are party to the Schengen Agreement require at least 3 months remaining validity on your passport. The 3 months is counted from your intended date of departure. Based on your passport's validity, you cannot travel to these countries unless you renew. However, there are countries like the United Kingdom and Ireland that only require your passport to be valid for the duration of your stay.

You may use your current passport for travel to Mexico and to most of the Caribbean countries.

Question: Hello, my daughter's passport expires April 1 2018. She is flying to Switzerland December 29, 2017 and will return January 6, 2018. United Airlines, her flight carrier said she needed a passport that was valid upon arrival but now I am reading about the 3 month validity rule from the time of departure from a Schengen area.

Answer: Switzerland, as party to the Schengen Agreement requires at least 3 months validity remaining on a U.S. passport counting from the bearer's intended date of departure.

Unfortunately, your daughter's passport falls short of this requirement. If she is still a minor age 15 and under, you need to accompany her to apply for a new passport at a regional agency. If she is already 16 or older, she needs to apply for a new passport and submit the requirements herself at the agency. In order to be entertained, proof of immediate international travel must be presented with the application. Regional agencies process applications in 1 to 8 business days.

Question: Good evening. I'm a U.S. passport Holder. My question with regard to my travel to France on Dec 24 2017 with a return on Jan 7, 2018. I just realized that my passport expires on Apr 1, 2018. Which equals to 97 days before I depart and 83 days when I return from Paris. According to the Department of State, France requires a 3 months passport validity after the time of departure (return flight). Hence the ambiguous "3 month" verbiage. With 83 days left, am I safe to travel to France? Can my 83 days still be considered 3 months? I have no time to renew for I am currently in the Philippines.

Answer: Hi, Mike. Your U.S. passport needs to be valid for 90 days (3 months) counting from your intended date of departure from the Schengen area which France is a part of.

Your passports falls short of this requirement. Please contact the airline you are flying with to see if there may be some leniency possible.

My passport expires June 2018
by: sasha

Question: I’m traveling on vacation to Panama from 3/10/18 to 3/18/18 and to Cancun on 5/3/18.

When can I file for a renewal and how soon will I get it? Do I need to renew before my trip to Panama?

Answer: You may file for a passport renewal anytime during its validity but the Department of State rrecommends starting the renewal process nine months before expiration.

Panama requires that you passport be valid for at least 3 months counting from your date of arrival. Depending on the date your passport expires in June, you may be cutting it too close to expiration. Mexico, on the other hand, only requires a valid passport.

We recommend that you renew your passport soon. If you apply now, you will get your passport in 6-8 weeks -- enough time before your trip to Panama.

Traveling from France to Spain
by: Anonymous

Question: I just arrived in France and was informed that you need 3 months prior to your expiration to enter. My U.S. passport expires in 72 days-- just about 2 and a half months. The extremely nice man at the airport said it would be OK for today so I was able to enter. However, I will be traveling to Spain in 3 days and then back to the U.S. 3 days later. Will I have problems entering Spain? Or what is the likelihood that I will be able to enter Spain from France?

Answer: You need to have at least 3 months validity remaining on your passport in order to enter the Schengen area to which France and Spain belong. That you were able to enter France does not mean you will not face difficulties crossing the border to Spain. The likelihood that you will be able to enter Spain will largely depend on the border official that inspects your passport when you arrive.

*HELP* How to get passport extension
by: Kristen

Question: Hi, I just got back from the airport where I learned about the 3 month passport validity rule. My passport expires on Dec 2 2017 and I tried to travel today, Sept 3. Since this is 1 day past that, they would not let me board my flight to Athens. Since our hotels were booked and our traveler's insurance was no help, he went ahead and got on the plane and I need to figure out how to get my passport extended.

It is a holiday weekend so my options are limited until Tuesday. Currently, my plan is to go to the local passport agency for an extension (not renewal) and fly out Tuesday night to meet him.

I can't find any info on passport extensions which is the language my agent has given me. Can someone please PLEASE help? I need reassurance that if I go to the office on Tuesday morning I will be able to get out Tuesday evening. Again, my passport is not expired but the recommendation is to get an extension.

Please let me know any info. Greatly appreciated :)

Answer: The U.S. Department of State does not issue extensions to U.S. passports anymore. What we suggest that you do is apply for expedited renewal at the regional passport agency. Bring the following to the agency:

1. Form DS-82
2. Current passport
3. One passport photo
4. Payment for passport photo
5. Proof of immediate international travel

Please arrive before the agency opens so increase your chances of securing a slot. While there is no guarantee, you may be issued a new passport on the same day.

Another option is to apply through a passport photo. These companies have a special relationship with regional agencies which allow them to get your application processed in as fast as the same day.

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!

Since you are leaving in a couple of days, you have two ways of getting your passport on time. One, you can apply a the nearest regional passport agency and present evidence of immediate international travel. Regional agencies require appointments but MAY entertain walk-ins. Make sure you arrive before the agency opens.

Two, you can apply through a private passport expediter who can get your application processed in as fast as the same day.

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.
