As the UK is no longer part of the European Union, EU countries now require UK passports to be less than ten years old and still be valid for at least three months at the time you're due to leave their country. To check your passport is valid for travel, ask the two questions for each person on your booking (including children) – if the answer is yes, you’re ready to go!
1. On the day you arrive into the EU, will your passport’s “Date of issue” be less than 10 years old?
2. On the day you leave the EU, will your passport have at least three months remaining (based on the “Date of expiry”)?
