    (Sighs) It has absolutely nothing to do with Brexit. Passport standards are set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (sic), which defines a maximum validity of 10 years. The UK has now normalised their passports to better comply with these standards.

    It's got everything to do with Brexit and entry requirements to the EU for 3rd country nationals.

    "If you are a non-EU national wishing to visit or travel within the EU, you will need a passport:

    valid for at least 3 months after the date you intend to leave the EU country you are visiting,
    which was issued within the previous 10 years".

    The issue was around the period of time a passport is valid for. The UK was normalising its passport validity to 10 years (without any added "bonus") regardless of whether Brexit happened or not.

    Coincidence - yes. Causal - no.

    You’re still missing the point. The ONLY reason for this change is Brexit. Not a coincidence, not anything else, directly causal.

    Read the government statement above, check the facts, this is yet another problem caused by the incompetents who handed the decision on the EU to the masses who had no idea what they were voting for. And of course power seekers like Johnson and Gove who manipulated it for their own ends.
