Countries can have different passport validity requirements, for example, minimum 6 months from arrival date, minimum 3 months from arrival date, valid on the date of arrival or valid 3 months beyond the planned stay in the destination country.
Passengers may be required to present proof of age (such as a birth certificate) for children under the age of 18.
