As we know, some countries require you to have six months remaining on your passport in order to visit.

I'm uncertain as to whether this differs for each origin country - for example, one list seems to suggest some countries have different rules for the US as a result of bilateral agreements.

I'm going to be travelling later this year and could enter the sketchy period where there'll be 5-7 months left on my passport towards the end of the trip. It's a New Zealand passport, so I'm trying to find a list of the countries that I'll need a new passport for - if I don't need to get one yet, I'd rather not.

I looked into this recently. USA (ESTA) ICE officer told me 3 months from date of arrival as the esta is valid for 90 days. Canadian embassy website said 6 months from date of arrival. Egypt requires a full 6 months on exit according to a conversation I had with the London consulate. the NZ department of foreign affairs website said there is no comprehensive list and to check with each embassy before travelling. Don't have time to turn this into a proper answer - maybe tomorrow night. –  Stuart Mar 18 at 0:52

the last point on the list suggest the NZ government is considering moving to the UK system of offering a credit on early renewal which would be swell. passports.govt.nz/Five-year-passports –  Stuart Mar 18 at 12:11

It would appear there is no official list rather an official suggestion to check with the country you are traveling to.

I suggest you ask separate questions for the countries you intend on visiting.
