How long should passports be valid for?

Passports should not expire for at least six months from the date you’ll return. Please check the government website for the country you are visiting for any additional requirements. All pages must be securely fastened inside. (Some countries will not accept a passport that does not meet these standards.)

We recommend students make two black and white copies of their passport before travel in case their passport is lost or stolen; keep one in secured luggage and give one to the Group Leader.
