Your Passport Might “Expire” Three Months Before the Expiration Date

Did you realize that you can get to the airport with your valid passport and be informed that your documents aren’t valid for your destination?

It happens. Some American travelers have been refused boarding because their passport is due to expire in three months, or six months for some destinations. Many foreign nations have various entry and visitor policies that you can run afoul of. Even very popular European destinations like Italy, France, and Spain require that your passport doesn’t expire for at least three months after your departure date. For some countries, many in Asia, the period may be six months.
