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
