Can I travel to the USA in November if my New Zealand passport expires in JHi, I've cross-posted this in the USA forum, but thought I might get better info in the NZ forum since I'm more likely to get Kiwis responding. I'm a Canadian permanent resident and I will be going to New York for 2 days in late November and taking a flight to Mexico from there. The flight returns to Canada, so I'll literally be in the US for 2 days only. My passport expires at the end of January, and I'm wondering if my passport needs to be valid for longer in order to cross the border? I know in order to get visas for some countries, your passport needs to be valid for 6 months after your intended stay. Is that also the case for New Zealanders going to the States? I can't find any mention of it online. Thanks!

5I'd be getting a new passport, I pretty much always have at least 6 months validity for travel in general around the world. The only thing that complicates matters is the fact you say you are a Canadian PR. That MAY exempt you somehow, but as #4 points out the visa waiver rules also complicate it all.

6Passports must be valid for 6 months beyond the length of stay of the person entering the USA. Attached link refers:

7Further complications here as well. Depending on your Canadian PR...
of course if you then need to satisfy the VWP requirements as a NZ then you'll need the 6 months.
