  • Visa World - COVID-19 Travel Update - JULY 2021

    Coronavirus Travel Restrictions

    Thank-you for visiting Visa World we are currently open by appointment only.

    Since January 2021 the rules for travelling to the EU have changed and you must have at least 1 year left on your passport for it to be valid.

    If you renewed your passport early last time and as a result had extended time added to your passport it will no longer count when visiting Europe

    Please check your passport’s official expiry date before booking any trips as the rules relating to traveling in Europe have changed. Since the UK left the EU any extra time added to your passport no longer counts as valid for travel or visa purposes within the European union. 

    The government website is currently quoting 10 weeks for passport processing (read the press this is sometimes taking much longer!!) and currently there are no same day passport services available, so if you need to travel to the European union sooner Visa World can still help get your passport application processed in a fraction of that time.

    Although the passport office are currently NOT offering same day or next day passport services, Visa World can help with new passports or renewals, lost or stolen passport, second and third passports, name change on marriage, child’s passports etc

    We are starting to get a higher volume of calls for passport renewals and travel advice.

    If you are travelling please remember passport rules and regulations will still apply. You need to check if you have enough time left on your passport as required by the country you are visiting and can comply with the current COVID-19 restrictions.

    Please remember countries on the amber list may be added to the red list based on the Covid 19 risk. Please check your destination as many countries on the amber list have restrictions or special requirements for travellers arriving from the UK e.g. Italy require 5 days isolation for UK citizens. Details available from the UK Homer Office website

    Contact us so we can get that urgent Passport renewal processed.
