Guidance for Outbound Travellers
The Passport Office has provided the attached advice as part of their No Deal Contingency Planning
This main point of the advice is that, in the event of a No Deal Brexit, UK nationals travelling to the EU after 29 March 2019 need to have 6 months left on their UK passport from the date of travel (this applies to both adult and child passports). They also point out that people who have had extra months added to their existing 10 year UK passport, because they renewed their old passport before it expired, may find that these additional months do not count towards the six months that should be remaining.
