Documents to Carry with You

Your Passport Must be Valid for 6 Months

  • Passport and all visas: Make sure they are in date. In some countries, your passport must be valid for 6 months after the date you travel.
  • Carry with you 6 spare passport photos for any document emergencies.
  • Take with you a Carnet (used for moving goods in and back out of a country), if required.
  • Carry your own driving licence with you. Also, check whether you require an International driving licence (can be sorted at certain UK post offices).
  • Ensure you update next-of-kin details and wills. Let people know where you are located.
  • Contact numbers: Keep a laminated copy of in-country telephone numbers with you.
