Your passport remains the best internationally-accepted evidence of your citizenship. All passengers need a valid passport for international travel, regardless of the destination, but as some countries require certain length remaining on the passport, you should check with the consulates of all the countries you are planning to visit prior to your departure, as you may be refused entry if you do not comply.

Failure to present valid passports matching the names on your reservation will result in you being refused carriage. If you do not have a valid passport, we strongly recommend that you apply for a new one well in advance of travel plans.
