    Hi everyone,

    Am I right in thinking that when I enter the U.S I will need a full 6 months left on my passport? I think I have 7 left and really don't want to have to renew before my trip as its so expensive!

    thanks for any help x

    If it is a British passport then it only has to be valid for the length of your trip, Ive travelled with less than 3 months on mine. Some airlines might want 6 months, if you have 7 then you will be fine anyway. :goodvibes

    As Jen said, by rights your passport only has to be valid for the length of your trip but some airlines insist on you having 6 months.

    From what you've said, you should be fine on your existing passport :thumbsup2

    You will be fine. My son's passport had 7 month's left on it back in December and it was perfectly okay.
