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

After 31 January 2020 there will be a transition period until the end of 2020, while the UK and EU negotiate additional arrangements. The current rules on trade, travel, and business for the UK and EU will continue to apply during the transition period. So for now, it is business as usual!

You, your family or your business can take some actions now to prepare for 2021. 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 1 January 2021 your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) card might not be valid.

Renewing passports – if your UK passports is over 10 years old, or if it has less than six month’s validity for travel, you will need to renew it before you travel. Further details on how to do this can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/renew-adult-passport/renew.
