Foreign Ministry vs. Interior Ministry: It is safest for citizens NOT to travel with expired passports


The Macedonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs notified all countries about the extended validity of the expired passports (which expire after July 31, 2020), but despite that some countries do not accept these passports as valid.

“Unfortunately, despite all the efforts that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is constantly making, there are still countries that find it more difficult to adapt to these changes and do not treat such documents in full compliance with the amendments to the law. Therefore, we inform all citizens that the safest way to travel abroad is with a passport that is not expired,” responded the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Earlier, the Ministry of Interior announced that citizens will be able to use their travel documents which have expired or will expire after July 31, 2020 until December 31, 2021.
