If you plan to travel to the Schengen area after 29 March 2019, to avoid any possibility of your adult British passport not complying with the Schengen Border Code we suggest that you check the issue date and make sure your passport is no older than 9 years and 6 months on the day of travel.  If your passport does not meet these criteria, you may be denied entry to any of the Schengen area countries and you should renew your passport before you travel.

The easiest way to renew your passport is online at https://www.gov.uk/apply-renew-passport

n.b. Schengen = Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland

If your passport is older than nine and a half

Getting stuck in a foreign clime won’t be a laugh

You’ll wish you’d renewed

Before you were fooled

And like the veritable parrot you will barf

Got your EORI application in yet?
