Thursday 13th December, 2018 and still to the best of our knowledge…
David here and yet another outburst – its passports this time!
Worried whether your passport will work post Brexit?
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.
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?
