friends uk passports expire June and july 2013

hi

can anybody confirm that you can still get into Portugal in April on an UK passport that expires in June and July 2013?

If the mentioned person is an UK citizen coming from the UK to spend less than three month's on holidays in Portugal the answer is YES: he just needs a passport valid until leaving the country.

Entry Requirements - Passport Validity

You must hold a valid passport to enter Portugal. For stays of up to three months your passport must be valid for the proposed duration of your stay; you do not need any additional period of validity on your passport beyond this. However, it is always sensible to have a short period of extra validity on your passport in case of any unforeseen delays to your departure. You do not have to wait until your old passport expires to apply to renew it. Any time left on your old passport when you apply will be added to your new passport, up to a maximum of nine months. For passport applications in the UK, you should apply to the Identity and Passport Service. For stays of longer than three months, contact the Embassy of the country to which you are travelling.

UK residents need a valid passport to leave the UK, let alone enter!

I agree, renew passports now. That's what I did a few years ago and they tacked on the unused months to the new one.

That's a nice perk............wish the cheapos here would do the same, as we always renew when there are 6 months left on the current document.
