One of my kids passports is valid 6 months from date of arrival in Israel, but not 6 months from date of departure. ( a few days off). I did some research There's conflicting info whether that's good.


The US govt has this to say. I think its plainly wrong.
http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1064.html
Although a passport valid for six months from the date of entering Israel is not required by the Government of Israel, airlines may prevent boarding if a traveler does not have at least six months validity on his or her passport. Please check with your airline directly.

An israeli consulate says this- Anyone entering Israel needs a passport valid for at least six months from the intended date of entering Israel.http://boston.mfa.gov.il/index.php/en/component/content/article/47-general-information/516-visa-application
You'd think that would be accurate.

This site says you need it for 6 months from date of leaving. At least that  airline required it. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13342877/ns/travel-travel_tips/t/when-your-valid-passport-isnt-really-valid/

As mentioned before-why not just renew?  its a big deal since you want to get it renewed early enough to be sure you have it in time so its really only good for about 4 years.

Anyone have anything more on this?

From this website, which is made by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of Israel, found via the official Israeli Government website.

All visitors to Israel must hold a passport that is valid for at least six months from the date they are departing the country.

Good find, I guess I'll have to renew, can't afford to take a chance with the airlines or a border agent.

Which airline are you flying with? If you're booking via UA and have premier status, make the return an earlier date, after arrival change back to original date.  :-\

Wow thats fast. On another not I am in the process of getting a Passport for my daughter, and when I got all the documentation ready I was flabbergasted when I got to the Post Office in Brooklyn and they told me that all the Brooklyn Post Offices only do Passports now by appointment only. Seriously?? You guys are that busy? So I called the number last Tuesday and left a message for someone to call me to schedule a time and have yet to hear from them.
The quicker we abolish the USPS the better off we'd be.
Just so u know, u can apply for a passport in brooklyn, at the Kings County Clerks office on Adams Street at window 1... no waiting. got my sons passport in 14 days regular service

Currently, expedited service says anywhere from 2-3 weeks: http://travel.state.gov/passport/processing/processing_1740.html

If I'm traveling in less than 3 weeks, but more than 2, should I just wait to go in-person?

Need a U.S. Passport Immediately?

You should make an appointment to be seen at a Regional Passport Agency only if:

The U.S. passport is needed in less than 2 weeks for international travel
The U.S. passport is needed within 4 weeks to obtain a foreign visa
Contact the National Passport Information Center to make an appointment or locate a Passport Agency.

I would just send it in expedited. I got it back in two weeks without doing expedited

Yeah, but there's a risk that way, albeit small.

I guess the safest way is to just go to the passport agency in person.

I recently traveled to Israel via DME (Moscow), my passport was less than 6 months to expiration (5 months or so remaining), and I had no problems in either direction. With less than 3 months remaining you're risking it.

Just checked as I am out of pages, it is 82 dollars to add pages aside from the shipping costs and hassle involved.

In the US they will let you in I am sure, but for other countries aside from the fact that they sometimes need full blank pages for visas, they also could deny entry if they cannot stamp you.

They just stamp over them. Only problem is countries that need to print a visa.

A US citizen does not need a passport to enter the US, although it does make things easier.
