Do you need to renew your passport? Do you know when you need to renew it by? Well I’ll tell you. It is not the Month and Year on your Passport if you will be traveling less than 6 months before your departure. If you are going to be traveling out of the country to make sure there are no problems you need to renew your passport 6 months prior to your departure. Why? The reason is a growing number of countries are demanding it. You can check the requirements for the countries you plan to visit at the Department of State’s website at travel.state.gov
