If you already have a passport
Passports are required for all three of our European Grand Expedition trips. You MUST have a valid passport to participate. Your passport MUST be valid for 3 months from the day you depart from Europe back to the US. For example, if you depart July 5th, 2020 from Zurich, Switzerland, your passport must be valid through October 5th, 2020. Almost all European countries require your passport to be valid for 3 months after your start travel date. Double check your passport if you have one and make sure it satisfies this requirement. The process to renew your passport is time intensive, just like when you got your passport at first. Be sure to start this process well before our trip to ensure you will receive it in time.
