uk passports expiry dates
  • My wife, daughter and I are due to travel to Tunisia on 17th October 2010. Our UK passports expire on 11th May 2011, 18th August 2011 and 18th May 2011 respectively. Do we need to renew before we travel or not?
  • Freddie, I think your passport validity should be fine but if you want confirmation then just call the Tunisian embassy who will be able to put your mind at ease.
  • HI

    My 4 year old son and myself are going to tunisia 13th April to return 24th April 2011 and my sons passport runs out 26th september, Do I need to renew it before I go or will it be ok??
  • Rebecca - your son's passport should be absolutely fine. I don't think there is a need for it to be renewed prior to travel.

    Enjoy your vacation in beautiful Tunisie
  • Mich - I think he will be fine - it still will have 6 months validity on it.

  • HELP - we are thinking of flying to Tunisia on the 17th April 2011 for 7 days, my passport expires on the 22May 2011, will this be ok?
  • Ishi - it is so hard for me to give you a definite answer. It will depend on the immigration official and the mood on the day. If I were you then I would get a new passport before you come. I am not sure which country you are from but most countries can supply passports in just a few business days
  • We are due to travel to Tunisia in July. My daughter's passport is just about to expire. Will a new passport be OK? I read that passports should be valid for 6 months prior to travelling. Is this correct?
  • Statman - a new passport is great - it needs to be valid in regard to the amount of time left on the passport before expiry.

    Enjoy your time in Tunis

  • Hi Achref, 
    I'm not sure where you're from but you should be absolutely fine to travel. You have more than six months validity on your passport - and that is the maximum border control in any country requires. Enjoy!
  • It does depend how long you intend to stay... if it's for more than three months you may need to renew your passport, otherwise you should be fine!

Howdy, Stranger!
