Apart from love life, 6-month rule also applies to passport validity—DFA

Preparation is key for a well-planned out-of-the-country travel.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) advised Filipino passport holders to follow the six-month rule visa validity to avoid any troubles during overseas travel.

On its Facebook page, it reminds everyone that some countries require this six-month rule.

Aside from the Philippines, other countries that follow the same rule include Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Meanwhile, countries like Canada and Mexico only require at least three-month passport validity for travelers.

In an earlier report of The Filipino Times,  DFA reminded Filipinos that there will be no extensions for e-passports in compliance with the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The e-passports feature integrated chips on its pages where the owner’s information was stored.

DFA then urged Filipinos to renew their passports a year earlier before its expiration.

In 2016, e-passports were introduced because of delays in passport issuance.
