1. Passport Information

We can only advise on the requirements for British passport holders. For British passports endorsed in any way please contact the United Kingdom Identity and Passport Service.

 

You should ensure that you have a valid ten-year passport as many countries require expiry dates on passports to be a considerable length of time after the return from holiday, we would recommend that your passport is valid for 6 months after return to the UK.

 

For more information visit the United Kingdom Identity and passport service here

2. Does My Child or Baby Need A Passport ?

 Yes. Before 5 October 1998 babies and children could be included on a parent or guardian's passport. In line with standard international practice and as a precaution against child abduction, children must now have their own passports to travel abroad.
A child passport is valid for five years. When it runs out you can renew it for another five years, and so on.
