8) How long will my passport need to be valid for when I travel?

How long your passport needs to be valid for depends on the country you are visiting.
For EU countries:

-Your Passport must not be older than 10 years on the day you enter the country of your holiday destination (check the 'date of issue')

- Your Passport must have at least 3 months validity on the day you leave your holiday destination (check the 'expiry date')

Passport requirements for non-EU destinations vary and can require as much as 6 months validity - check the FCDO Travel Advice and the entry requirements page for the country you are visiting.
 
It's your responsibility to ensure that your travel documents are valid for your destination.


Visit the HM Passport Office website and the FCDO travel advice website for more details.

For all other nationalities, you'll need to check the embassy of the country you're planning to travel to, and with the passport office.
