hi my passport runs out in sept 09 this year
can i still travel to turkey or majorca or places like that in august? or do i have to renew it as it needs to be 6 months left on passports if traveling abroad?

ive never understood the 6 months thing, surely that just makes a 10 yr passport in effect a 9 and a half year passport, stupid if you ask me

best to see country of choice's rules

You can renew it and extra time will be added to your passport.. for instance renew now and you should get a new passport for ten yrs plus the extra month x x

Entry is different for each country, but within the EU most are happy if the passport covers the period of travel.

Was going to recommend the same thing.

Doesn't take too long too.

You don't want to be on holiday, get quarantined for swine, and stuck in a country .. during which time your passport expires.

Passport validity

Your passport should be valid for at least six months on entry into Turkey and have at least three months' validity on the date you are exiting Turkey. If you hold a Travel Document it must be valid for at least one year on entry into Turkey.

get it done now cos they go up in september, and you also can renew it 9 months before it expires..

I reckon you would be safe, but you never know what might turn up and current passport are always useful for ID, so I wouldn't let it lapse if I were you.

Looks like you've got the details - excellent and well deserved.

I have deleted a few off topic and rude posts (and quoted replies)

Please only take the time to post comments if you have anything useful to say that is relevant to the OP's request.

Any further deliberate thread spoiling comments may result in infractions

In almost every case they will let you in if you have a return ticket that flys before the passport expires. They all say 6 month/3 months to encourage ppl to apply early.
