In a burgundy covered passport, you will find the expiration date on the very first page of the passport at the bottom. In a purple covered passport, the date will be listed on the front sticker with the horse’s name. In a burgundy covered recognition card, the date will be on the back of the first white part of the passport. And in a purple covered recognition card, the expiration date will be located on the front sticker with the horse’s name.

The passport will then receive a revalidation sticker and a new expiration date listed 4 years after the revalidation is processed or 4 years after the expiration date (which ever is the later date).
Note: The passport must be current and up to date with ownership information and Equine Influenza vaccinations before a revalidation can occur (see Equine Influenza requirements for a FEI passport).
