The last thing you want to experience during your trip around the world is to find out somewhere in the middle of your journey that your passport has expired. Therefore, it’s necessary to check your passports expiry date before travelling – it should be valid at least six months after your approximate intended return.
If you intend to drive a car or a motorcycle abroad, you’ll also have to have or apply for a driving licence.
Some countries require travellers to obtain a visa to be allowed to enter the country, so check whether you have to obtain your visa at home, before travelling, or at one of the embassies, during your trip. But definitely try not to leave your visa at home, in your scanner, like we did.
It’s best if you make copies of your documents and keep them someplace safe.
