I have a US passport, which is set to expire on July 9th, 2018. I'm visiting Pakistan from March 21st to April 2nd. I have a Pakistan visa, which is valid until the expiration of my passport and it has multiple entries for up to 1 year stay.

Would I be fine if my passport expires in 3 months and I'm only staying in Pakistan for 1 week? I do not plan to overstay.

  • If it's anything like Europe or the US they won't let you in if your passport will expire soon. Mar 19, 2018 at 6:33
  • I must admit I never understood why a password has some expiration date but in most cases they won't accept your passport if it is "close" to it (and I have a hard time thinking of 3-6 months as "close") ... Mar 19, 2018 at 11:58

According to the Pakistan page at travel.state.gov,


Six months beyond the date of arrival

There don't appear to be any exceptions to this. However, I couldn't find a page on a Pakistan government site that says anything about passport requirements.


Most countries (including Pakistan) require a minimum of six months validity on your passport. Be aware that this may also apply to any countries you're transiting through (I'm assuming there's no direct flight from the US).
