UK changes passport style again

August 27, 2010

Well dear readers, what to say about this?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11071998

This new style passport that comes into physical issuance in October this year will mean there will be 3 different styled official UK passports in operation amongst its citizenary.

I, for example have a passport issued in 2004 which is still valid and in active use until 2014. 

In 2006, a new style passport was issued with a chip in it to please the USA and remove the requirement for UK citizens to apply for Visas for the USA.

In October 2010, the next generation passport comes into force…….whilst the other two styles are of course also still valid until they expire.

This means there will be 3 very different styled UK passports in circulation until 2015/6
