Passports

Check the expiration date on your passport now. Even if you aren’t planning on traveling next month, it’s a good idea to check it. Certain countries require that your passport be valid for six months past the expiration date that you’re scheduled to return home. These are China, Russia, and US.

It’s also a good idea to check entry and exit requirements for countries around the world. You can check those at www.travel.state.gov.
