Tips Regarding UK Passport Renewal

UK passport renewal is required every 9 years, give or take a few months. While your passport is valid for ten years, there are some countries that will not permit you entry if you have less than six months left on your passport. You then have to account for the time it takes to get your passport renewed. You certainly don’t want to leave it until the last minute.

Some of the countries that require a minimum of six months left on your passport expiry date include Turkey, Thailand, Indonesia, Fiji, Egypt, and China.

One thing you need to be mindful of when it comes to making your UK passport renewal application is scam websites. While you can renew UK passport online, there have been a number of sites developed to look like the official Government website, when in reality, this is merely a scam to take your money and your personal information, so you need to be extra careful.

And what about Brexit? Well, once we leave the EU, UK passports will return to blue. However, your burgundy passport is still going to be valid until it is due for a UK passport renewal.
