Uk passport expiration date requirements

Hi All,

Would someone know if it's a problem that my 17 year old granddaughters passport expires within 2 1/2 months of our departure? We will be in England only for 3 weeks.

Thanks so much!

Assuming your granddaughter doesn't need a visa to come here (and US or Canadian citizens coming here for a holiday don't, though those coming here as students do), it's no problem.

There are rules in the UK about minimum passport validity for people on visas. For those who enter without a visa, the only requirement is that the passport should be valid till the end of the stay. It's perfectly possible to arrive here on December 31 with a passport expiring that day, be admitted for a three-hour meeting, then return home the same day.
