Good news! My passport doesn't expire until August!
  • Current Mood: happy happy
I forgot that I have to be around for a couple of work events that happen during that time. Now I'm planning on leaving either the evening of June 22 (if flying) or the morning of June 23 (if driving), which limits my time since my friend who cat sits for me is supposed to go away in early July. So I'm probably not going to PEI after all.
You should renew it now. If it's expiring close to any travel where you'll need it, they advise renewing it before the travel. It might not be a big deal with Canadaa, but the last time I went overseas my passport was going to expire about a month after the trip and I was told I should renew it before the trip because they could refuse to let me travel on itl
Actually I was told that by the guy at the post office when I went to ask whether I should renew my passport before or after the trip. So, take it for what it's worth. Mine expired a little sooner than yours after my trip.
Lots of countries require your passport to be valid for 6 months after you =exit= the country, even on tourist visa or visa waiver programs. The last 3 times I had to renew my passport, it still had more than 6 months on it, and I still couldn't travel.
It's a pain.

Having said that, getting into Canada on a US passport may not pose too many problems :-)
