    Can I get into AB this Sep/Oct with a passport that expires in May of '19? A buddy of mine recently had an issue getting into a country with these circumstances and got turned around..

    Yeah, 6 months seems a little excessive.

    We had to deal with this issue around the first of the year for an upcoming trip. On the positive side, it only took about ten days to get updated passports. I was expecting far worse.

    If ya plan on hunting in Alberta, I assume ya know about having a valid Alberta WIN card in addition to the various licences and stamps.

    Get a new passport. You have time.

    I experienced the same thing a few months ago. After travelling 24 hours and not sleeping during that time, the government of the Czech Republic deemed that my passport that didn't expire for four months was insufficient despite the Brits stamping it a few hours earlier.

    After some friendly discourse and a couple of phone calls we were able to sort things out. However, there was a point where I was pretty sure I was on a plane back to Heathrow that didn't depart for another 14 hours and since I don't sleep in airports or on planes I wasn't very enthused about that prospect.

    It's a lot easier to spend an hour getting a new passport than several hours at customs when you'd rather be on your way to hunting camp...
