Default hi everyone

Hi, I have just found this forum and look forward to hearing from some people, all over the world. I live in Turkey and have done so for 15 years now. I am British and have a question for you all - I have been told that someone with a British passport has to have 6 months valid on it before entering the UK - does anyone know if this is right? I hope not as I have booked to go and renew mine in October and it runs out in November. Hence the worry.
Hope to hear soon, keep well

Hi and welcome to BE, I hope you enjoy being part of our community.

You shouldn't have any problems entering the UK on your passport, as you are a UK citizen entering on a UK passport. There's a few threads on this subject floating about the forum, here is a recent one you may find useful: http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=748741

Welcome to BE!

And yeah, you're good to go, you can even enter the UK on an expired passport.

The issue is getting on the plane in the first place, but as a Brit citizen, the airline shouldn't give you any problems with a valid passport.

thank you all for your advice, I know now that I can get into the country with no problem. I will renew my passport and then I can come home on the booked return. Thanks again, friendly and informative forum.
