What are the Passport and Visa requirements for my holiday?
Visas are required by British citizens to visit some countries. Customers holding passports other than a British passport may require visas for different countries.
Always check before confirming your booking to ensure you have the correct documentation. In many countries the length of stay can determine if a visa is required. British subjects and holders of British travel documents are bound by different regulations to British citizens.
Generally, passports must be valid for 6 to 9 months after the date of return. Some stamps of entry to one country may prevent entry to another. Children and babies must have their own passport. However, for most destinations, children and babies who are already on an existing passport may continue to travel with the passport holder until either the child reaches the age of 16 or the passport expires.
Photographs of children should be of a good likeness and therefore need to be kept up to date. Airlines can refuse boarding should a photograph be out of date. For some countries, if you have been arrested or have a criminal record, including certain driving offences, you may need a visa. The name(s) on the passport must match the name on the travel ticket.
