Hello,

Has he got a valid British Passport and if not, when does his Japanese passport expire and when will he be leaving the UK/EU for Japan?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

His Japanese passport expires in December 2014. He will enter EU on August 2 2014 and depart UK on August 16 th 2014.
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
He will be fine as his passport will be valid for more than 3 months after he leaves the UK/EU.

Having a British passport will mean he can use the UK/EU channel when travelling to the UK and EU countries which is far easier than using the non UK/EU channel if he will be travelling on his Japanese passport.

Hope this helps

He doesn't have a British passport, just a Japanese one.Will this still be OK.He will be accompanied by his father who does have UK passport.
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
Yes, he is fine to travel on his Japanese passport.

Hope this clarifies
