Is the passport effective until expiry date?

Jump to last reply

The whole question is pretty short:

I'd like to enter Finland, and I myself am a Bulgarian citizen. I only need to go there for 2 days, around the 20th July, and my passport is valid until 27th. So, the question is - can I make the visit and renew my passport? Or are there any constraints like "your passport is has to be valid a couple of months after you plan to leave"?

I've seen constraints like these, when people talk about visas, but I'm not so sure, whether there are any similar details when travelling to a EU country with an EU passport.

If anyone could point me to some documents or statements, or share own experience, please do.

inb4 renew your passport now - I'm living in russia at the moment, and renewing my documents in the embassy is too slow, so I'm not going to make it for the potential trip on 20th of July.
