Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

So my passport which I renewed some two years ago now has the wrong information on the cover. I wonder how long before EU customs start to play silly b's and refuse to recognise it.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

Just imagine returning to Russia and being asked "what is this CCCP on the front of your passport comrade?" 😆

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

So with passports and the possible easing of lockdown, is anybody actually thinking about booking a holiday this year? 

We had no plans to travel abroad this year but had thought of taking a run up north. Maybe best to wait until summer starts after that second injection has kicked in and try and find somewhere to stay as and when/where needed.

Me - I'll be going to my 'second home' as soon as possible.

Barbados, or the shed at the bottom of the garden?

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

We booked a holiday in November for a week in Guernsey on July 8th thinking the lockdown was a one off, remains to be seen if it will still go ahead but at least Guernsey is not in the EU.

@jab1 

Nice.🙂

You put second home in inverted commas so...

No second home f'me, but I do have a tool shed just in case the Mrs kicks me out!

@gleneagles 

Never been to the any of the channel islands other than flying over them on my way to Brittany, but something I have never considered is if I ever did visit, do you need a passport. Daft question perhaps but considering it's so near France it might be something you'd need.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

@Minivanman I call it my 'second home' as I spend maybe 9/12 weeks there per year. It is actually my 'other half's' home - and don't ask for the expected explanation, it's a bit complicated. 😀

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

The Channel Islands are part of the common travel area, just like the Republic of Ireland, and require visitors to produce photo ID.  A driving licence should suffice but if you have a passport, take it; there can be no argument over whether a valid British passport is valid ID.  The airline will also need you to identify yourself.

The last time I was there...............

If you wanted to hire a car they asked to see your passport.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

weirdly i  got a email from nhs yesterday saying i was being moved onto the extremely vulnerable shielding list (due to a combination of health issues) and by now i should have received my first vaccination or soon would.

2 seconds later, doctors called me to ask if i want a vaccination!,  so tomorrow afternoon im getting astra zeneca jab (i was offered choice, but dates were further away for pfizer). Wondering once i have second jab to then book holiday as may know more then.

Re: Oxford-Astra Zeneca

All the best @futurenet hope it all goes well.

I've been to Jersey and Gurnsey years ago, my dad used to ask me on suggestions on where to go. Yes I enjoyed it and had a good time. My best holiday was Sydney in Australia. Cor I would love to go back there, but of course with the fun and games of what are going on, it is hardly a good idea.

"Oh Well", as Fleetwood Mac said.
