Is it possible to use old passport (with my residence permit; vignette - 5years) when travelling?

Post by ljdebenedictis » Sun Jan 27, 2019 12:27 pm

Hello again. I just realised something last night. 🤔

At the end of March I will be able to apply for the EU settlement scheme but I just realised that my passport (Philippines) is expiring in June2019 which contains my residence permit.

My question is, will my Residence permit (vignette) on my old passport (when I get my new one) will still be valid just in case I travel for holiday and go back to UK. I know that I will probably have the settled status already but most airport in other countries may be confused with the new papers. I dont know. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Thank you

If the residence permit expires before returning, then you may have problems boarding the plane.

Hello.

My residence permit expires in January 2020. It’s only my Philippines passport is expiring in June 2019. I’m just curious what will happen if I go for holiday?

As discussed in this post: Will (pre)settled status mean new residence card you will be issued a new card under the EU settlement scheme if you are from outside the EU and you do not already hold a biometric residence card. Since your passport is from the Philippines and you only have a vignette, I gather this is your case, and thus you'll be issued a new card once you get Settled Status.

I see. Thank you for the explanation. 😊
