Collective Passport For Young People In The United Kingdom

Did you know that collective passports are still issued in UK and Malta? This document is a collective passport for children on an organised trip. The group leader must also carry his/her full British passport. Each child listed on page 2 of the collective passport must carry a identity card bearing his/her photograph. A collective (or group) passport is a way for an organised group of young people to make a trip to certain European countries. A collective passport costs £39 and applications take about 6 weeks. Young people should travel on their own passports if possible.

The passport isn’t for families but for groups such as:

  • schools and sixth form colleges
  • guides
  • scouts
  • other recognised youth organisations

You can have between 5 and 50 children on a group passport. If there are more than 50 in the group, you can split the group and apply for 2 or more passports. Everyone on the passport must be a British national and under 18 by the end of the trip. A group leader must be named on the passport. The passport is invalid if the group leader can’t travel, but if a deputy leader is named on the application, they can take over. The group leader and deputy leader must:

  • be aged 21 or over
  • be a British citizen and have a British passport
  • be a UK resident

  1. Hi Tom, I finally found similar “Collective passport for young people” from the Netherlands. All with destination England
    1966, valid for eight (!) years, 50 students
    1970, valid for six (!) years, 111 students
    1976, valid for two years, 53 students
    1979, valid for one year, 32 students

    Passport fee was 50 Guilders (comparable to the UK), and a 3 Guilders province fee for each student on the passport.

    1. Congrats, Theo. Collective passports are nowadays indeed hard to catch. I am still astonished about an old Bulgarian passport booklet in my collection where they managed to place in 55 tiny passport photos. But to catch a collective passport for 111 students is awesome. I am wonder about the very long eight and six years of validity. Best regards, Tom.
