  • Passport expires on 12th Jan

    Can I travel to Ireland for new years, back on the 1st?

    Assume its fine due to the common travel area but dont want to get stuck in Ireland

  • There is no requirement by the Uk or Irish state for a passport but you need Id for flight / boat and some firms insist on a passport. I can’t see how they could refuse travel if the passport is valid and there’s no need to present one for immigration control. Aer Lingus and Ryanair have never checked mine in any depth either, just checking photo is me and name matches boarding pass (Ryanair’s t&cs actually exclude Uk Ireland travel needing the extra three months validity).
    I’ve never been asked for a passport on arrival in Uk, and by plane you bypass passport controls anyway.

  • Great thanks, going to a wedding but don't have any Irish family or frequent fliers to Ireland so thats what I needed to hear.
