We are thinking of traveling to Abu Dhabi next month but I just realized my Italian passport will expire in three months. Is this a problem? I know in many countries you cannot go in with a passport close to expiration date. thanks
According to Timatic, the database used by airlines for immigration information:
- Passports and other documents accepted for entry must be valid for a minimum of 6 months from the arrival date.
- Passports and other documents accepted for entry issued to passengers who stay less than 3 months must be valid for a minimum of 3 months from the arrival date. This does not apply when entering in Abu Dhabi (AUH).
The same six month requirement is stated on UAE government websites.
Accordingly, you'd need to renew your passport before you travel.
