Passport expiry before travel

Post by Botman » Mon Apr 19, 2021 9:10 pm

Hi. I am on a tier 2 work visa in UK visiting my home country outside EU. My passport is expiring in August. I heard passport has to be valid for more than 6 months to travel. I have booked tickets for this week already. Please help. Thanks

This is not true. You can travel as long as your passport has a valid expiry date.

Lets assume you have booked a ticket for 30-04-2021 whereby your passport expiring on 27-04-2021 then you may visit Pakistan High Commissioner office who will then give you temporary extension for 30 days so you may travel. Once you reach Pakistan, you can then apply a new passport.

I did the same last year. I hope it will help.
