Please be aware, since 1 Jan 21 all UK passports must have at least 6 months validity to enable travel to the EU. If, when you last renewed your passport, there was some validity still on the old passport you may have been given this as extra on your new passport. This extra period beyond 10 years from the start date of the new passport is no longer valid. If a passport has reached 9.5 years of its validity it is no longer valid in the EU and must be changed.

Please check your passports to ensure this does not affect you and also speak to family and friends who may be visiting. Unfortunately, one such family has already fallen foul of this rule change and were turned away at the gate of departure.
