Some countries require your passport to be valid up to 6 months beyond your expected date of departure. If you need to obtain or renew your passport:

  • U.S. Citizens: Information on passport application/renewal can be found on the U.S. Department of State website.

Before you travel, consider emailing yourself a copy of your passport's bio page and any visa(s) you may have obtained for you journey. This way, you'll be able to access copies of these documents from anywhere with an internet connection. Also, make photocopies of these documents and carry them with you while you travel.
