I am confused regarding the rules about passport validity versus residency validity when it comes to travel, as I have heard different opinions on this.
My residency expires in January 2013, and my passport in March 2014.
Does this mean I can travel and come back to Qatar for example in December 2012, and then have my passport renewed before the residency expires?..
– OR –
Does the 6-month rule still apply, i.e. my passport should have at least 6 months validity left on the day I return to Qatar (which means I have to renew my passport already in October, before travelling)?
Would appreciate to know the rule on this. Thanks.
