How Long Is a Passport Good For?

Save

The length of validity for U.S. passports depends on the age of the passport holder when the passport was obtained and the type of passport issued.

Minor Children

If a passport is obtained for a person younger than 15, it is only valid for five years.

Adults

An adult passport is valid for 10 years from the date of issue.

Warning

  • Some countries do not allow entry into the country if the passport is due to expire in six months or less. Obtain a new passport before travel.

Exceptions

Some passports -- including those issued due to a lost passport or issued as a second passport -- have limited validity and may only be valid for a year or two.
