    If you are an E.U citzen you only need a passport valid for your stay. Non E.U citizens must have a passport valid for a period of 3 months after their stay.

  • my family and me are travelling to Corfu 8/7/11. our passport expire Aug/ Sep 11. do i need to renew before we go?

    Urgent reply required.

    Thanks
  • @Anna - in all likelihood, yes. Depends on your passport though - for example, European passports are good for travel within the EU up to the date of their expiry.
  • Thanks DavidF, should have made it clear but all passports are Full English Passports.

    Thanks
  • @Anna - looks like you will be fine then. From the UK Foreign Office site: "Non-EEA (European Economic Area) nationals travelling to Greece must have a passport valid for at least three months after the period of their intended stay or expiry date of their visa. Nationals of the EEA are exempt from the above regulation but must have a passport valid for the period of their intended stay."

  • Hello...
    I have read all of the comments but need to ask to check before I try and apply for a passport renewal.
    I am due to travel to Greece (Crete) for 1 week from 14th - 21st July and my passport expires on 18th Oct 2011. Will I need to renew my passport in order to travel?
    I am a british citizen!
    Cheers!

  • I am Canadian, I will be visiting North and Southern Cyprus, I have had mixed answers on whether or not I can get into Greece if I have an entry stamp on my passport from North Cyprus, does anyone know for sure if it will be a problem to enter Greece if there is an entry stamp to North Cyprus from a previous trip???
  • We have Canadian passports that expire 4 months after our holiday to Crete - would this be considered valid? I was told by one travel agent 6 months and another 3 months.
