Are you planning for a trip? Superb !!!
So, should you be concerned about your Passport’s remaining lifespan? Is it matters that how many blank pages are left in your Passport?
Yes, you definitely should. Just make sure that your Passport has enough validity to suffice your trip. There are rules which varies country to country for the Passport Validity to travel. Mostly, Passport Validity is taken into consideration from the date of arrival or after the date of departure. While in few cases, it is considered from the Visa Application date or the Visa Validity. Also, you should have atleast two blank pages in your passport, before you leave for your next trip. However, there are countries which require only one blank page of the passport. But, to be on s safer side, its better if you have two blank pages in your passport.
Here are the list of Countries with their requirement of Passport Validity to travel:
- ANTARCTICA : Since no country owns Antarctica, no visa is required. However, the countries that signed the Antarctic Treaty’s Protocol on Environment Protection require that visitors from those countries (including the USA, Canada, EU and Australia) need permission.
- MIDDLE EAST:
- NORTH AMERICA:
- SOUTH AMERICA:
Note : Before travelling, please confirm with the Embassy of the respective Country about the Passport Validity requirement.
