Passport restrictions coming into the UK...

Evening guys and girls

Does anybody know if you need a certain number of months left on your passport to come into the UK on a Swiss passport?

I read on another page that most EU countries are happy to let you in so long as your passport covers your stay...just wanted to find out incase my girlfriend needs to get a new one.

Thanks all

Re: Passport restrictions coming into the UK...

not sure. Does she have Swiss ID valid for longer time?

How will she be traveling to UK by plane or ferry, as they might have their own different rules

I know that my EU friend was able to travel to UK with EU ID as their passport was out of date, but although Switzerland is part of Schengen it is not part of EU

here you go no problems

You’re from an EEA country or Switzerland

You can enter the UK with either a valid passport or a national identity card issued by a EEA country. It must be valid for the whole of your stay.

Re: Passport restrictions coming into the UK...

The best and easiest thing would be for her to check with the Swiss Passport Agency directly.

You could also do the same and check with the UK Passport Office.

Re: Passport restrictions coming into the UK...

Isn't it better to look directly on the UK border website rather than a random forum where the people could be talking total bollocks?
