patp I have read about people doing this and it is interesting. There is a further hurdle for us Brits to cross, apparently, and that is to have the microchip registered in the EU country issuing the passport. I assume there is a cost for this to be done too.

Penquin You can get an EU Pet Passport while in the EU for your pet.

The AHC is the U.K. replacement for NEW pet passports as no agreement has been attempted BUT existing EU Passports issued BEFORE 31/12/2020 remain valid for the life of the pet. Therefore use eg the French passport to travel from the U.K. to France, no AHC needed, and for entering the U.K. from eg France. It is perfectly acceptable for an animal to hold two passports, the Vets insert details into both.

Getting an eg French EU Pet Passport is straightforward although some vets will not copy details across of drugs eg rabies they have not done, with a rabies titre certificate entered they can transfer details but….. some insist on giving a rabies booster “just in case”.

patp Around £120 has been quoted elsewhere Ray. The form, they say, takes about 2 hours to complete. All ridiculous of course because our pets are all free of the things they are looking to keep out.

And another one -

From another forum - here is a vet in Havant near Portsmouth advertising on their website AHU for £99 and giving details of the process. As with the vet in Folkstone, you email them your details at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment. Hope that is useful to someone

patp Just copied this from another site -

I have seen on another forum that a vet in Folkstone will do an AHC for £98. You email your pet passport details beforehand and then book an appointment with your pet to collect the paperwork. Worth contacting them for more info. Their reviews look very encouraging and they have 200 parking spaces!! Vets near other ports might be worth contacting to see if they can help.

Makes sense for a vet to pass on the form filling to one of the admin team and then check it once the dog comes in for its examination. All ridiculous of course because as soon as the dog walks out of the surgery it could succumb to one of the diseases the vet has just declared it is free from.

If you have your father's DOB then it probably IS quite simple using Terry's link to get a certified copy of the necessary documents.

A passport is a very important document and I'm glad you can't get one simply by saying I should have one.

Pudsey_Bear I have no idea of any of his details as we were estranged, but it should not be so difficult, I know his full name and town of birth, I know mine so it should be that simple.


Thanks for the link Terry, but I don't want to know more about the B******.

From the citizenship pages:-


Documents relating to the Irish citizen parent (unless stated, originals must be submitted):

Original civil birth certificate of Irish citizen parent (showing parental details)
Original civil marriage certificate of Irish citizen parent (if applicable) OR other change of name document (if applicable)
Photocopy of current state-issued ID document (i.e. passport, drivers licence, national identity card) certified as a true copy of the original by a professional from the list of witnesses OR original civil death certificate (if applicable)



I should imagine most people would not have a clue as to how or where to find these.
Onerous yes but not ludicrous at all, a relation of mine works in the U.K. passport office, the hoops folk have to jump through to get a British passport is just as onerous.

It’s incredible what you can find out from online ancestry site applications but a simple place to start for you is in the link below.

Nope born and breed born Norn Iron, therefore Irish and British.
