Is Your Passport Valid?
If you plan to travel internationally in 2021, now is a great time to check your passport validity!
As a general rule, passports should be valid for at least 6 months after the intended date of travel, but these rules may also vary depending on your destination.
The current normal processing time for passports is 10-12 weeks, so there is no time like now to get started on your renewal.
