The following information is for British Citizens only. If you do not hold a British passport (or have a British passport issued overseas) or EU passport, then you must check with the appropriate embassy to see if you require a visa.

  • Do you have a valid passport? 
  • Is your passport is valid for at least six months after your scheduled return date to the UK?
  • Have you have completed the ‘next of kin’ section in your passport?
  • Does the name on your travel documents exactly match the name on your passport? 
  • Have you checked whether you require a visa for your chosen destination?

Visas & Passport Information

  • For further details regarding passports and the requirements for traveling abroad please call 08705 210 410 or visit
  • British citizens whose dates of birth fall on or before 2 September 1929 are eligible for free ten-year passports. This concession has been made to recognise the sacrifices made by World War II veterans and civilians.
  • It is advisable to take a photocopy of your passport with you on holiday but do not keep it with your passport.
  • When traveling, always keep your passport in a zipped pocket in your hand luggage.
  • Always keep a separate note of your passport number, place and date of issue, or preferably a photocopy of the back pages, packed separately from your passport. It is also recommended that you leave a copy with a friend in the UK and carry with you another form of identification (such as a driving licence). All this will be useful if your passport is lost or stolen.
