That could really be problematic. I would check in tomorrow morning ASAP with my passport office and see what they advise. Some countries require that the passport be good for 3 months after the departure date.

From the UK your passport needs to be valid twice as long after your departure as your stay is long. If you go for two weeks your passport needs to be valid for four after your scheduled departure.



• Passports must be valid for twice the length of the stay (i.e. four weeks from the date of entry if the person remains in the country for two weeks).

• Children may travel on a parent’s passport until the age of 15.
