The Department of State Extends Expired Passport Eligibility for Some US Citizens

The Department of State announced that U.S. citizens who are currently overseas whose passports expired on or after January 1, 2020, may be able to use their expired U.S. passport for direct return travel to the United States until December 31, 2021.

The State Department continues to strongly recommend US citizens reconsider international travel. US citizens returning to the United States will have to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result, taken within 72 hours of their flight’s departure.
