    Well my passport has an extra 6 months on it, as it was issued back in the days where renewals got the months left on the old one added to the new one. That stopped being valid a long time ago so I have to remember that I need to renew by Feb, not Nov, next year.

    TBF I'm doing a pretty good job of remembering that so far...

    As long as I can get into/out of Singapore/Malaysia in June, all will be well. I won't be sending it off before then.

    So I assume the same will apply to EU passport holders coming into the UK?

    Or here's an idea - why not stop being absolute fooking idiots who are clearly desperately trying to make things 'difficult' because the UK had the temerity to leave the EU and just do something which works for everyone and does not add an additional cost for absolutely no benefit whatsoever.

    I mean it really is not difficult to not act like a spoiled ten year olds who didn't get their own way.

    Relax man!

    Knee jerk reactions don't help, if the EU are going out of their way to make things difficult then so be it, we can deal with it.

    Default Brexit means Brexit. That's what you voted for. Remember?

    But are they still blue?
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    You are desperate to cling to the past and what that entails.

    Look at it this way - what is the risk to the EU of people from the UK travelling to the EU with less than 6 months on their passport?

    And for an extra bonus mark see if you can see what risk there is to the UK with people from the EU travelling to the UK with less than 6 months on their passport - for more bonus points ensure you reference the immigrant campus in Calais.

    However, it is unlikely that current delays have been caused by Brexit as the UK is currently in a transition period with the EU during which travel arrangements will not change until January 2021.

    Also apparently this could be a parody twitter account!

    I mean why not just go back to the days when it said UK and EU passports above the customs channel you could go through.

    All it takes is 5 extra letters and then we are sorted - I mean it said this above the customs channels for an awful long time after we joined the EU and got EU passports - it's almost like the ze Germans are trying to take over by stealth by removing those 5 letters and not telling anyone.

    Frances Coppola, a finance journalist for Forbes and the Financial Times, said airports such as Schiphol appeared to have “jumped the gun” by directing British passport holders to non-EU gates
