I was just reading about passports. We are scheduled to visit Belize 2-16-08. Our passports expire April of 08....which is not 6 months. HAD NO CLUE! I called Continental and they said that Belize was not one of the places that require 6 months. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE????

Yes it IS. (I posted in the other thread) I spoke to Immigration (Belize) and The officer told me that they do not have to let anyone into the country that has a passport due to expire within 6 months of entry.

If you want to be extra safe, you can go renew your passport in person. I noticed in your profile you are in NY. Three day turn around. Relax and see you in a few weeks smile

This is the law. We had to expedite for the kids they were 1 month shy of 6 months.

airlines also are inconsistent with enforcing the time limit. Their rules seem to be interpreted differently by different service/gate agents.

Better be safe than sorry -- especially since you say you have a lot invested in this trip.


I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

Thanks for the post Simon, makes me feel better since I'll only have 4 mos. left on mine when we arrive 2/9.
Delta assured me it only had to be valid for travel dates.

That could not be a more true statement... the rules in general are very inconsistent and vary at all airports... and don't get me started on the TSA!

Better be safe than sorry!

Agree, you have to renew soon anyways so just do it now.
