It is always you as the traveler who is responsible to check with the relevant embassy or consulate if a passport and visa is required at the destination you want to visit (even countries you are traveling through can sometimes require a transit visa or visa).
Please note that some countries require that your passport be valid for six months after completion of the stay. Some countries apply different rules and you should contact the destination's embassy to obtain relevant and timely information.
Anyone traveling to or through the US must apply for an electronic travel authorization ( ESTA ) no later than 72 hours before scheduled departure. We recommend that you bring a printed copy of your ESTA throughout your trip.
