BREXIT related travel notice

Ακορντεόν

Different passport validity rules apply for British Citizen passport holders visiting Europe. Check your passport validity using the passport checker on GOV.UK.

You may need to renew it earlier than planned and should allow up 10 weeks when applying from the UK. This does not apply to Ireland.

  • You should have at least 6 months left on an adult or child passport to travel to most countries in Europe (not including Ireland).
  • If you renewed your current passport before the previous one expired, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the 6 months needed.
  • You should check that your passport meets the new validity rules now using the online passport checker: gov.uk/passport-europe-2021
  • You should allow up to 10 weeks for your new passport when applying from the UK. Updated processing times for overseas applications will vary.
  • Both blue and burgundy British passports, including those with “European Union” on the cover, remain equally acceptable.
