What happens if passport gets to less than 6 months of expiration date?

Our 2 daughter's passports expire in July 2020.  I know you need to have a passport that is still good for 6 months min at time if visa interview. so that means we have till January 2020. 

 

We just had our case completed. what happens if we don't get our interview before January?  We've already submitted their passports info that they have now to nvc.

 

We sent all our documents in October 2018 so we thought there would still be plenty of time on them to finish the process.

 

Does anyone know what we would do if we don't get an interview by January? Hopefully they'd let us get a new passport for them and submit the new one in replacement. 

 

Even more so I hope we get an interview before January. 🤞🏻

They can have their passports renewed for interview. It doesn’t matter if old passport info is already put in DS260.

 

In fact you may want to have their passports renewed even if the interview happens before January if it’s easier to renew it in their country vs here in the US after immigrating.

Yes I'll probably renew before we mkve regardless. I just wondered if it mattered since we submitted the demographics page and photo of their current passport. I'll have to ask them what they'd want us to do.

It doesnt matter.  Ask for the old passport back and bring both to interview.  It's a nonissue for them.
