Passport Validity

One of the most common questions that we receive is “I only have x number of months left on my passport can I travel?” Although your passport is valid until the day it expires, the Governments Passport Office does suggest that you have up to 6 months left on your passport before travelling although this advise varies depending on the region/country that you are visiting. We recommend using the below form…

Some countries may turn you away on arrivals if you do not not have up to 6 months left on your passport. This scenario is obviously a highly stressful and costly for travellers who are denied entry and so its highly recommend that you do not presume and check before booking flights and certainly before travelling.

Passport Advice & Services recommends that you renew your passport if it has less than 6 months remaining, for peace of and to ensure that should your travel be delayed or your holiday / business trip extended then you will not have any issues gaining entry back to the United Kingdom or travelling to another destination.

Renewing Your Passport

Renewing your passport will add 10yrs to your passport and will ensure that you do not have any issues leaving or re-entering the UK. You can renew a passport at any time. It is highly advisable that you do so before it runs out so that you are always able to travel overseas for travel or business without having to wait up to 6 weeks for doing so.

Currently Overseas?

If you are outside of the UK and need to travel back to the UK immediately then you will need an Emergency Travel Document, if you are outside the UK and can wait for a new passport then you can renew your passport via the Standard Application Process.
