- Passport advice please
I’d get it renewed, some countries insist on it being valid for at least six months. Also check what the airline that you’re using (assuming that you’re flying) says. If they have a similar policy they won’t even let you board whatever the rules of the country you’re flying to.Posted 4 years ago
I am traveling to Geneva between the 16th July and the 23rd July, my passport expires on the 4th August. The foreign office web site says ‘Your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is required’.
Do you think I should renew my passport before I travel, bit nervous of being stopped from traveling by some jobs worth type at passport control.Posted 4 years ago
Glad its not me put it that way 😉
Common sense goes out the window when it comes to airlines they are remarkably inflexible.
Good luck – just tell the lassie at the desk – “jam bo on stw said it was definantly ok ”

You can actually fly with an expired passport inside eu up to 2 years after its expired – by the rules
How ever the whole thing hinges roundthe airline and the dya of the week easy jet for example get alot of complaints as some of their desk staff insist on a 3 month validity after travel – and the next desk will wave you throw . Chances you takes innit.Posted 4 years agoSumMember
IIRC Switzerland used to have a 3 month rule but checking the entry requirements this is no longer the case, and your passport need only be valid for the proposed duration of your stay with no additional period of validity beyond this required.
Alternatively the OP should change the wording on the inside of the front cover of his passport to read: “jam bo of STW requests and requires On the Pain of Weeing In Your Shoes all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hinderance, and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary.” That would have done it. 😛Posted 4 years ago
