Schengen Passport Requirement

Jump to last reply

The State Department advisory page for the Schengen countries indicates that passports are required to be valid for three months beyond the planned stay. Even though I think I understand what this says, I still have concern about it. My passport expires three months and a few days after I return from my trip. I just want to be sure I understand this correctly so I'm not refused entry. Anybody have any experiences with this?
