Mother gives an urgent passport warning after she was refused entry to Bali at the airport and sent back to Australia for a simple mistake
- A woman issued a warning to all travelers after she was denied entry to Bali
- She had less than six months in her passport before it expired
- Travelers cannot necessarily use their passports until the day it expires
A woman issued a warning to all travelers after she was denied entry to Bali for easy supervision and was forced to wait hours for a flight home, while security followed her every move.
The woman traveled to Bali for the 50th birthday of a family member when she was stopped because she had less than six months in her passport.
She said her passport was nine days shorter than the six-month rule from today's date.

Her passport expires on January 16 next year.
Travelers cannot necessarily use their passports until the day it expires.
& # 39; Some countries will not let you in unless your passport is valid for six months after you intend to leave that country & # 39 ;, says the Australian Passport Office website.
& # 39; Some airlines also impose this rule on their own initiative. It may even apply if you simply switch or stop. & # 39;
The website states that foreign governments can apply the rule inconsistently and being wrong can mean that they are stranded.
& # 39; They send me back to Australia because of the date and not the month, & she wrote on Facebook.
& # 39; So I've been sitting here for five hours with security following me to the toilet and getting something to eat.

& # 39; I have five hours before the next flight. & # 39;
She said her husband and 14 other family members were staying in Bali for a 50th birthday.
& # 39; Last word – check if you have six months or more on your passport before you travel here, otherwise you will be sent home, & # 39; she said.
Many felt sympathy for the condition of women, while others said the rule & # 39; general knowledge & # 39; and that it was important to do research before they traveled.
