Travel Tips



Before you leave home……

Planning a trip

Always carry a valid passport whenever you travel outside of your country. It is the only proof of your nationality and identity that is accepted in all countries.

Before you leave… be prepared

Make two photocopies of the identification page of your passport. Leave one copy with a friend or relative at home. Bring the second copy with you on your trip. Carry this photocopy separately from the passport when you travel. This can help identifiying you if the passport is lost, stolen, damaged, destroyed or inaccessible.

Passport validity requirement

Many countries require passports to be valid for a number of months beyond the date of a visitor’s entry. For that reason, before travelling to a country, ensure that your passport will be valid long enough by contacting the consular mission of the country you plan to visit. It is recommended that your passport be valid beyond your expected date of return home.

While away… Keep it safe

A passport is a valuable document. Protect it at all times. Do not leave it unattended in your baggage, automobile, hotel room or elsewhere. Keep it with you at all times, such as in your inside coat pocket, purse, or money belt.
