If you already have a passport, check the expiration date of the passport – your passport must have a validity date that is at least six months beyond your intended period of stay in the United States. For example, if you plan to depart the United States on July 30, 2023, your passport must be valid at least through January 30, 2024. Renew your passport right away if this is not the case!
