I will be traveling to Canada with my husband for 3 days to celebrate our anniversary in mid November. Our passports are due to expire 1.5 weeks after the date we plan on returning back to the US. Will we be able to take our trip? Renewing our passport and get it quickly will be too expensive for us. Will we be able to get into Canada and back home?
According to the U.S. Department of State's information on visiting Canada, the only restriction on passport expiration for visiting Canada is that the passport must be valid at the time of entry. That page also lists the contact information for the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa. It might not be a bad idea to either shoot them an e-mail or give them a call just to make sure they don't think you'll get hassled at the border, since 1.5 weeks is cutting it very close as passports go.
