NEW BREXIT RULE CHECK YOUR PASSPORT VALIDITY
21st August 2021
Travelling to Europe soon please read. Travellers checked in at Newcastle airport to travel to Palma. Headed to the gate to board the flight and handed over the passports, to be told they couldn’t travel because their passport was out of date!! Although their passport expiry was April 2022
Now if you’re like me you’ll probably think 6 months or more is adequate for travel. However, this is NOT the case travelling to Europe!!
I checked my British passport, it expires on 05 April 2023, or so I thought. Wrong, under new Brexit rules your passport validity is from the issue date, taking away any “add on’s as the airline put it” meaning my passport will actually expire to enter Europe on
05 Jan 2022
The airline staff said they’ve turned away so many people that don’t realise but it’s your own responsibility to check the Gov website.
Having checked in online with those passport details, completed the government forms with those passport details to be issued a QR travel/entry code, paid and had PCR fit to fly tests with those passport details, ordered the Day 2 test kits using those passport details. Not one of those entries has flagged this information up.”
