Preparing for a no deal Brexit, how does this affect you?
Passports and Driving Licences.
In the unlikely event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal, after 31 October 2019 new passport rules for travel to Europe will apply. You may need to renew your passport earlier than expected. All UK passport holders (including Guernsey and Jersey passport holders) should make sure their passports have at least 6 months validity remaining on the date they arrive in Europe. If you are planning to drive in the EU, you may also need a green card from your insurer and International Driving Permit. Please click here for further information from States of Jersey, States of Guernsey and GOV.UK. And as always, please ensure you have adequate travel insurance.
