5 Things You Must Know About Your Passport

5 Things You Must Know About Your Passport

A Passport Checklist
    1. Does it have enough validity?
      You need at least 6 months passport validity from the day you return back to your home country.  This is imperative. Many travellers arrive in airports worldwide with passports that are invalid.  Ensure this does not happen to you.

       

    2. Is it in good condition?
      Ensure your passport is in good, clean condition.  No tears or rips. Some countries around the world do not accept passports that are damaged.  Keep your passport in a good protective pouch.

       

    3. Do you need to add a visa?
      You may need a visa for entry to the country you’re travelling to.  You may also require a traditional visa where a stamp is implemented on a page in your passport.  This is the alternative to e-visas issued.

       

    4. Does the name on your passport match the travel booking you’ve just booked?

      Ensure the booking you make (or have made) matches the passport name. Many people forget that they use different names or nicknames in their day-to-day life. And then when it comes to making a booking, they forget their birth name (or official name) on their passport is their ‘real name’.

       

    5. Keep in a safe place!
      Always, always keep your passport in a safe place.
