Welcome to the FAQ website covering document topics in Canada.
My passport expires March 2012 and I will be travelling to the US in November for 1 week. I shouldn’t have to renew it to travel in November should I? Someone told me it needs to be renewed 6 months prior to my travel, from what I read and understand, this is not true, but thought I better email you just to confirm this.
As a Canadian Passport holder traveling to the US you require a valid passport. You do not require 6 months validity.
