Biometric Passports

New rule changes on the 1st April 2016 require individuals to have a British Passport which is biometric, when visiting some countries abroad.

What is a biometric passport?
This is a passport which has an electronic chip containing your personal details.

Do I have a biometric passport?
If your passport was issued prior to 2007, then you may or may not have a biometric passport. This will be evident if there is a small logo located at the bottom of your passport.  Passports issued after 2007 should be biometric. You should ensure your passport is biometric before travelling, otherwise you may be turned away.

If you are travelling on a holiday, visiting friends and family or you are making a visa application, Garden House Solicitors are able to assist. We specialise in the following areas of Immigration Law:
