Published on : Saturday, December 23, 2017


passportBrandon Lewis the immigration minister confirmed that after the UK leaves EU in 2019, the existing burgundy EU passport will get back to the previous blue and gold design.



It was confirmed by the Home Office that the move would symbolize the national identity and the new passport  will be one of the most secure travel documents in the world.



Lewis said that by leaving the EU will provide them with a new opportunity to restore their identity and create a new path for themselves in the world.



He was delighted with the announcement of the British passport going back to its traditional blue and gold deign.



There will be a raft of new security measures to protect against fraud and forgery  and the passport will be one of the most secure travel documents in the world.



From October 2019 the new blue passport will be introduced in phases  to those who wish to renew or want to apply for a new travel document.



During spring 2018 the government mentioned that a new supplier of the new passport will be appointed.



In 1988 the old ‘hard-cover’ British passport started being replaced and by 2003 all had expired.


The blue cover UK passport was first featured in 1921.



International Civil Aviation Organisation, a UN body based in Montreal will prescribe all the dimensions and other features.



There will be a new super-strength plastic polycarbonate material that will be difficult to alter according to the government.


Every passport issued by the UK will continue to be valid as a European Union travel document until 29 March 2019.


Post the date of leaving, all current British passports will lose this status.



Curently all UK passport holders can travel anywhere in the EU without informing the authorities.



The border guests will only be checking that the travel document is valid but post Brexit the British citizens will turn into a third country national having no automatic right of admission.
