It is true, some countries won't let you enter if your passport expires in less than 6 months.  China is one, but I'm not sure which others.

Most countries want you to have a passport that is valid to ensure safe passage back home.

 

I found this just doing a search for Mexican tourist requirements:

 

 

Passport Validity

The maximum period of time that a visitor may stay in Mexico without a formal visa is six months. Therefore your passport, regardless of country of origin, should be valid for a minimum period of six months, however long you intend to stay to avoid any potential problems at the port of entry.

Immigration authorities at the port of entry may allow or deny entry of any person into Mexico. If you have a passport that is valid for less than six months and you intend to stay in Mexico for a short period of time—perhaps a vacation—the Immigration Officer might allow you entry.

Notwithstanding this, we recommend that you and your family members hold passports valid for at least six months from the date you plan to enter Mexico.

 

 

 

Tisha: Really hoping your flight got out this morning! It was blowing a gale up here, and a ton of flights were delayed out of Toronto! Hopefully you are enjoying the Mexican sun right now!cheers.gif

I believe so.  My TA told me that everyone going must have passports that don't expire for at least months after the departure date.  They won't let you leave the country here if you don't have at least six months left.

Ok so silly question......I know someone (possibly Murmel cause she is always knowledgeable :-) ) had told us a while back which songs the wedding coordinators will ask you for, for the ceremony, but my silly question is HOW DOES THE CEREMONY GO? lol

I am thinking general music while everyone sits and waits, but does the Groom walk up the isle and seat his Mom, both parents do the groomsmen do this? Or do people seat themselves?  Or does the Groom wait at the front and that is when it all starts? Then the girls, then the Bride?

I know, I obviously did not pay any attention when everyone else I know was getting married  embarrest.gif   Can anyone sort me out? lol

 

Thank you so much!
