When was my passport issued?
March 5, 2009 7:50 AM   Subscribe

Could someone with a US Passport handy please help me with a quick question about the date of issue and expiration?

I need to know when my passport was issued. I don't have it in front of me, but I do know when it expires. I believe the total length of time it is good for is 10 years.

My question is if my passport expires on, say June 15, 2009, was it issued on June 15, 1999 or June 14, 1999 or June 16, 1999?

So, how does your expiration date compare to your issue date?

If my passport is any indication, yours was issued on the 16th.

Mine was issued September 24 and expires on September 23, ten years later.

Yep, juggler is right: 10 years from start to end.

Your passport issue date should be June 16, 1999.
