Travel Tip Tuesday: Do You Know When Your Passport Expires?

Just because your passport hasn’t expired doesn’t mean you’re able to travel abroad.  A lot of countries have entry requirements that require that your passport be valid for three to six months beyond your travel date and/or that your passport have extra pages available, too.  This is especially true for countries with special visa requirements (click here for a fun map that shows visa requirements by nationality).  So, before you go abroad, double check your passport’s condition and expiration date to make sure you’re able to enter the country and to save you the embarrassment and hassle of being sent home due to a passport that doesn’t meet entry requirements!

I was just telling my sister-in-law this last night:) We are hoping to get together in December for a relaxing vacation in the Riviera Mayan. I know she has a passport but I was reminding her to check the expiration date.
