OH MY GOD ARE YOU KIDDING ME - 01/10/08 11:52 PM

I just read the remarks about passports. Our passports are due to expire in March of 08 and we are going to Costa Maya Reef resort 2-16-08. I thought a passport was a passport?????

HELP!

You still can make it if you (Quickly) find a US Post Office near you that can expedite your paperwork. The post office now has special locations that will handle all aspects of passport renewal (Photo's, application etc.) So it makes it easier, It cost a bit more (to expedite passport) but I got mine back within a couple of weeks. Belize Immigration most likely will not let you in the country if your passport is within 6 months of expiration. Good Luck, It is still possable if you hurry up smile

This subject came up in a recent thread and it turns out that your passport only needs to be valid until the end of your stay.

That 6 month rule was waived quite a while ago.
