Get a passport or double check the expiration date of your current passport

It is your responsibility to obtain the appropriate travel documents. We highly recommend you allow plenty of time to obtain your passport because it can take approximately four to six weeks to process your application. You can check current processing times at the following link: The Bureau of Consular Affairs at the U.S. Department of State. For non-U.S. passport holders, please check with your consulate for current processing times.

Some countries require that your passport be valid for six months after the date you enter the country. Each country has its own specific requirements. To find out what those requirements may be select your destination country and refer to the “Entry/ Exit Requirements” section on the Country Specific Information page.
