    Default Re: Sons passport requirements

    I'm off to Thailand April 2nd to April 26th with my son who has both a British and Thai passport.

    His British passport expires in May. As he's exiting the UK on his British passport and entering Thailand on his Thai passport (that doesn't expire until 2022) the six months validity on his British passport doesn't matter does it?

    Unsure if I have to renew before we go.

    Anyone advise?

    Thanks

    Hi m0ntecarl0,

    It'll need renewing at some point so why not get it out of the way?

    We are also going in April. My sons expired last month and I've just sent off the renewal. The renewal only takes 3 weeks max and cost £54 or £49 if you don't want it sent back recorded delivery.

    I just renewed my own too which I did online and was processed in a few days. It's a little more difficult for the child passport renewal as you have to send new photos and get them countersigned, but still just a simple online form and declaration to print out and sign.

    My renewal arrived in under a week back in December. Like Toddmeister I think you should just get it done.

    thanks Steve,

    Did you also have to send off your sons Thai passport too when sending the renewal?

    Hi, my son doesn't have a Thai passport just his British. All I had to send was his expired passport, 2x passport photos (one signed) and the countersignature declaration form. You have to sign the form on behalf of your son and also a non-family member has to complete the form stating it's a true likeness and that they have known yourself and your son for at least two years.

    The airline could be funny on this - possibly as they will know that to enter Thailand there needs to be 6 months left on a passport. However, I'd expect that showing the Thai passport should sort that.

    But........ as you are not staying over 30 days, there is no advantage in your son using his Thai passport at all points except re-entry to the UK.................or have I missed something?

    Hi m0ntecarl0

    Just thought I'd give you an update. I posted my sons passport renewal on Thursday 3rd Jan 1st class. It was marked as dispatched Wednesday 9th & just received it back today. So currently only 4 working days to process from receipt of paperwork

    did you mean UK passport, best to travel on Thai passport for all flights and then use UK to enter UK
