PASSPORTS

** YOU MUST HAVE A VALID PASSPORT THAT DOES NOT EXPIRE WITHIN 6 MONTHS OF TRAVEL DATES.


I cannot stress this point enough.  Numerous past participants have tried to travel with either a passport that will expire within the 6 months, or already expired!  These dancers/parents were turned away at the airport.  Don't let this happen to you!  This is YOUR responsibility, not ours or the airline booking our tickets.  We try to remind people to renew passports but we cannot do it for you.  You will have to buy another airline ticket if you fail to get on with the rest of the team.
