Valid Passport and Right Visas

While your travel agent can guide you, it is really up to you to ensure you have a valid passport and the right visas.

  1. Make sure your passport is valid for travel for all the countries you are visiting or transiting in.
  2. Many countries require your passport to be valid during and beyond the length of your stay (usually a minimum of 6 months). So check what applies to your itinerary.
  3. It is a good idea to carry two additional passport photos with you in case your passport is stolen or lost and you need a replacement passport while overseas.
  4. Depending on your nationality you may need visas for the various countries you are visiting or transiting in. It is often essential that these are obtained prior to going overseas.
  5. Be prepared; if you are unsure about what to do contact your Embassy. Find your local embassy in the countries you are visiting at
