My passport expires on January 28th 2012. I've just booked a flight that departs from the UK to the US on July 19th but returns on July 28th (arriving in the UK on July 29th)... Btw I hold a British passport.
So when I board the flight in the US to come back home it'll have exactly 6 months left to run. When I arrive in the UK it'll have 5 months and 30 days left. Am I going to be okay with the whole 6 month expiry thing?
From what I've read (this information is a few years old though) the 6 month rule doesn't even apply to UK travellers going to the US aslong as they're due to return home before the expiry date on their passport. But that information is a few years old so I'm not sure if that's still the case, or if it was ever the case for that matter.
Basically I'm 99% sure I'll be okay but would really like your assurances that this is the case.
