Passport implications in No-Deal Brexit
The UK Government has highlighted the need for travellers to have at least six months validity on their passport if travelling into an EU territory after 29 March, in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
This comes in a Government notice issued to the travel industry and advises operators to highlight the changes should the UK fall out of the European Union without a deal. Currently, UK citizens can travel to the EU providing their passport has not expired and will not expire during the trip, but without a deal, this will change and HM Passport Office is calling on the travel trade to contact customers travelling with them after 29 March, allowing sufficient time for them to obtain replacements if required. It is also advising that details are placed prominently on websites and that staff are fully aware of the changes.
For example, UK residents wanting to travel on or after March 30 the day after the UK is due to leave the EU must have a passport issued on or after 1 October 2009.
