Jersey Island Variant blue passports
The new blue passport design is now being issued to British nationals renewing or applying for a passport, one of the major changes is that your new passport will need to be signed before you can use it.
How to sign your passport
Sign your new passport as soon as you get it. You can’t use it until you do.
Sign on the ‘holder’s signature’ line using black ballpoint pen.
When you don’t need to sign
You don’t need to sign your new passport if:
- you’re aged 11 or under
- you can’t sign because of a disability
The passport will show ‘the holder is not required to sign’ on the page with your name and photo on it.
Currently a small percentage of British Islanders, who have no links to the UK, have an Islander Endorsement stamp in their passports. This endorsement restricts the automatic right to live and work in the EU. After 31 December 2020 this endorsement will cease to be added to any new or renewed Jersey variant British passports.
