Do you for sure need a US passport that is valid for at least 6 Months from the return date if i am traveling to Israel? My Passport expires 3 and a half months after i am scheduled to return from Israel.

Found this on the State Dept website.

My son recently had only a month left on his passport. He flew to Israel and back without any problems.

I'll be entering my 15th week this week, still waiting for my daughter's passport. BH no planned travel yet, but I believe that every person in my house should have a passport. When this thing is finally processed, I sure hope they give me a later expiration date to match how long it's taking!

The expiration goes after the day it is processed and approved so you will be getting a later expiration date.

My sonís expedited renewal- really a new passport because last one was a child this one is adult - is on week 10 with no passport in sight and scheduled travel on Monday. Anyone have any suggestions ? Contacted Bob Menendez office last night but had my hopes that would show up Friday or shabbos so probably too late. I called passport agency 5 times but once itís processing thereís nothing they can really do other than email the office itís in (NH).

The way I understood it, both Israel and the USA allow it.  Airlines, at their discretion. When I called United, they said if the country allows, they do too.  And indeed there was no issue.

This was for my wifeís passport. While I have not yet confirmed this to be the case for us, my wife was just talking to someone that had their photo denied due to wearing a fall sheitel with a band. They do allow it for religious purposes but you need to send them a letter saying that.

Just a PSA to be super careful with the picture. They wonít tell you this until you push themÖ
