Do I need to get a new British Passport after Brexit?

All the information you need to help you prepare for travel after 1st January 2021 can be found here.

Travel Documents: You may need to renew your British passport earlier if you’re travelling from 1 January 2021. On the day you travel, you’ll need your passport to both:

  • have at least 6 months left
  • be less than 10 years old (even if it has 6 months or more left)

Travel & Health Insurance: You should continue to get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad. From 11th January 2021 UK residents will now be able to apply for a UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC).

Under Britain's new agreement with the EU, UK residents' rights to emergency and medically necessary healthcare will continue when travelling in the EU. This includes medically necessary treatment for pre-existing or chronic condition.  Current European Heath Insurance Cards (EHIC) are valid as long as they are in date and people can continue to use these when travelling to the EU. Further information can be found on the UK Government website here.
