Just to make you all aware. If brexit happens at the end of the month and you have a MINIMUM of 6 months left on your passport, you will not be able to travel to European destinations. we only realised by a pop up on the computer, this was fortunate as we are travelling in both November and December with an expiry date of March on our passport. Hence both in for renewal
We have both received text message today advising our passport should be back by 31st, but saying not to book flights until we receive them, a bit late flying to Seville on 7th November. Squeaky bum time 🤭
Also worth checking & noting..... 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. My passport was issued in April 2012 with an expiry, to include unused months on prior passport, of December 2022 So, I believe it may now expire April 22. Given that I need 6 months validity, I’ll need to renew before November 2021
Wonder how many people will fail to appreciate this?
Strange, we actually asked the question re invalid/ unused months at the post office, they informed us our new passport will be valued for 10 years from issue date, god willing it looks like we shall be renewing again in 9.5 years
