Passport Validity to travel to USA


Recommended Posts


My Mother In Law's Passport is valid till July 25th 2020.  According to our plan - she will arrive in US on October 9th 2019 and return on March 31st 2019.  However when we are trying to book the tickets in Air India - we get a message "Passport should be valid for 6 months from commencement of travel".


What is the rule about Passport Validity ? Should it be valid for atleast 6 months beyond the intended date of return (i..e March 31st ) or should it be valid for the duration of the stay.


I did some research online and found a rule that India is a part of 6 month Club. So passport should be valid for the duration of the stay ?


Given my scenario, would it be okay to book tickets till March 31st or should we make sure that when she returns she has atleast six months of Passport Validity.
