UK Passports The cost of a new adult 10-year passport is £72. Child passports are £45. Fast tracked passports are £97. Each passport contains an electronic chip containing personal details of its owner. More inform on applying for a British Passport.

Always complete the next of kin details in the back of your passport. Make two photo copies of the personal details of your passport including the passport number. Keep this copy in a seperate safe place whilst travelling. If you loose your passport whilst abroad this information will make it easier for a replacement or travel document to be issued. Exchange copies with your next of kin if they are travelling with you. Leave the second copy with a realive or friend in the UK who you can contact if the need arises.

IMPORTANT NOTE Further information and advice on any country is available from the British Foreign Office.

This site provides information and advice on UK consular and Embassy services in all euromost countries whether you are a tourist or business traveller. It will also advise you if it is advisable to register with them in certain areas.

You are strongly advised to check the specific requirements of the Immigration Authority of the country you are visting. Some countries may require you to have a visa ie Russia. Other countries may not require you to have visa if you are coming direct from the UK but may require one if you are coming from another country.

Some Eastern European countries require that your passport be valid for a minium period after the date you intend to leave the country. The Czech Immigration Authorities in particular are very strict in this respect and will refuse entry to anyone not satisfying this criteria.

It should also be remembered that admission to a country as a visitor does automatically give you the right to work.

Money  Matters

Cash Cheques & Credit Cards

In addition to sufficient funds for your visit, you should have access to additional funds. These funds may be in the form GBP Euro’s or US$. If you are carrying Cash or Credit Cards check that they may be used in the country you are going to before you depart. You are also advised to carry seperately details of these cards and the number you should ring if you loose them on your trip.

Please note that in some countries, for example Albania, credit cards are not always accepted in smaller establishments.
Personal Safety & Specific Travel Warnings

Specific travel warnings  exist for some  European countries where in some areas or regions there may be personal safety concerns and dangers because of social unrest or a threat of terrorism. A summary of the more serious threats is given on the Travel Warnings page with links to  the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office for the latest updated information

How Safe Is The City and Country I Am Going To ?

Are there still landmines in Serbia – When is a lady of the night in Prague not a lady – I am black is it safe for me to visit St Petersburg – for more information see the guides in ‘Destinations links at the top left of this page.

Useful Travel Tips For The Smarter Traveller

When travelling abroad no one is as ‘streetwise’ as they are when at home. Practically every city in the world has its own local problems. In Eastern Europe , as in Western Europe petty crime can be a problem especially in tourist areas, coach and rail stations. See the euromost safety and security article in each city guide. Please see the ‘Destination’ Links at the top left of this page.

In some rural areas of a few countries, notably Russia and the former Yugoslavia, landmines and political instability may pose a threat. Where there is such a risk euromost have on top left handside of the page posted a flashing beacon.

An adjacent ‘travel warning link to the Travel Warnings Page & British Government Foriegn Office will give you updated information.
