Passport expires Oct. 11, 2014

Hi all-

Do I need to get my passport renewed? I am leaving NY for London on July 4 and returning to US on July 19. Will be going to Paris from London on July 5-8. Will be in London 8- 19. Do I need to get my passport renewed for this trip? Thanks in advance!!

No - you're fine.

Or you could renew it now? It only takes a couple of weeks.

I assume the OP is concerned about the common notion that someone needs to have at least 6 months left on their passport.

The 6 month recommendation comes from the US Department of State.

The UK requires that your passport be valid during the period of your stay. However, for entry into France your passport must have a 90 day period of validity beyond your anticipated departure date from the Schengen area:

As you plan on departing France on July 8th, I quickly counted 90 days and computed your passport must be valid through October 6th. With a passport valid until October 11th you should be OK but that´s cutting it close.
