The following information is for British citizens only

A standard ten-year British passport is required for all holidays, which must be valid for at least six months beyond your planned date of return travel; however, exceptions may apply. If your passport expires earlier, it may still be acceptable but you should contact your local passport office or the consulate or embassy of the country to be visited for detailed advice. 

Clients applying for a new passport should allow a minimum of six weeks for the application to be processed and to renew an expired one, three weeks. Lost, stolen and new passports will take a minimum of one week to replace. It is essential that you check whether you are in possession of a valid passport before you make your holiday booking. 

If your passport is endorsed in any way, you should check immigration requirements with the relevant embassy or consulate of the country to be visited. 

Passport stamps - You should be aware that if your passport contains previous entry or visa stamps of certain countries you may encounter problems when visiting other countries - e.g. a passport indicating you have previously travelled to Israel may not be accepted by a number of Arab countries. 

For holders of British Subject Passports and Non-British Citizens, we can only advise on immigration requirements and offer the Titan CIBT visas Service, if your passport was issued in the UK and endorsed ‘British Citizen’. Holders of a British Subject passport and Non-British Citizens should check immigration requirements with the relevant embassy or consulate of the country to be visited, as should clients with Dual Nationality/ Renounced Citizenship. 

All consular fees are correct at the time of going to print and are subject to change. Where appropriate, visa forms and guidelines for the relevant country, will be sent with confirmation invoices. 

NOTE: Some travellers including those with certain serious communicable illnesses, criminal records, previous deportations, visa overstays and other problems may not be eligible by law to enter certain countries. Such travellers must check with the embassy or consulate of the country to be visited in order to ascertain if they are eligible to apply for a special restricted visa.

Please note there will be a process fee applicable to all visa applications made through the CIBT. In the event of cancellations or alterations to your holiday our Booking Conditions apply and we regret we cannot be held liable for any costs you may incur as a result. You will also be responsible for advising CIBT of any changes or cancellations.
