      Hi Edward, After the UK leaves the EU, burgundy passports will continue to be issued but with no reference to the European Union.

      New blue and gold UK passports will be issued from October 2019, when the new passport contract begins, to those renewing or applying for a new passport.

      To save the taxpayer money, the newly designed blue and gold passports will be introduced in a phased approach.

      The UK government has announced today that in the unlikely event of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit, British passport holders travelling to another European country after 29 March 2019, should ensure that their British passport has at least 6 months validity remaining. If it has less than 6 months validity you may be refused entry.

      Still confused. My uk passport runs out August 2019. If I renew, do I then have to get another passport when we leave ?

      Thant is a good question and you are not alone in finding some of the Government advice confusing. The simple answer is NO. Renew your passport as normal remembering that for many countries you need at least 6 months validity on your passport to visit. Your new passport will remain valid for the 10 years that it states and the only difference may be the rules for travel and visits to the EU after Brexit. Nothing at all will change before December 2020 in the event of a deal and in the unlikely event of a no deal we will provide information here before March of next year. So in short renew as normal and your passport will remain valid but it may be that the rules concerning travel within the EU changes so that you require a visa to visit but we just don’t know yet.
