Foreign Office warns Brits to ‘make sure’ passports meet new rules after travel ‘carnage’

“It was extraordinary at the weekend,” he told Sky News.

“The numbers weren’t huge travelling but they’re still bigger than they had been all through the year, and around about lunchtime on Saturday I had parents contacting me on social media saying, ‘Help our kids’ passports are no longer valid for travel in Europe.”

However, when Mr Calder double-checked the date of issue for these passports, he found them all to be valid in accordance with EU and UK guidelines.

“Since Brexit, it’s got a lot more complicated in terms of passport validity,” he explained.
