10. Passports for veterans

Veterans and others who were involved in the Second World War can get free passports so they can travel overseas to commemorate activity that took place during the war. There are two different types of passport available for this:

  • concessionary passports; and
  • free 10-year passports.

Concessionary passports last for one year, and are available during 2019 to veterans of World War II and their:

  • husbands, wives, partners, widows or widowers; and
  • carers.

Contact the Veterans Agency for more about these.

Free 10-year passports are available to all UK citizens who were over 75 on 2 September 2017. This is to make sure that everyone who helped the UK through the war years can benefit from a free passport. Call the UK Passport Adviceline for more information about these (see ‘Further help’).
