Full Answer

If you plan to travel outside of the country, keeping your passport current is always a good idea. Because it sometimes takes several months to receive your new passport, it is advisable to apply for renewal no less than six months before the expiration date. This helps you avoid the stress of wondering if you are likely to receive your new passport in time for your trip overseas.
