My passport has about 5 months until the expiry date. I want to travel home (to the UK) in February.
I was unaware of the 6 month rule until recently, and to be honest I am confused about where it applies and doesn't apply. I have found conflicting information about it online relating to Denmark. I don't even know if it applies to Denmark (as a non-EU citizen). All I know is that I don't want to plan a trip home and then be not allowed to board a flight.
I have (non permanent) residency in Denmark, but I am a British citizen with a British passport.
Will having about 5 months left on my passport be a problem when going through border control on the Danish side/when trying to leave Denmark? Will they be like "hey, you should have got a new passport before travelling in the EU!" Will it be a problem with either the Danes or the Brits?
My plan would be, if it's not a problem, I will order a new passport once home in the UK.
Thank you for your help! :) If you have any advice or even just want to point me in the direction of the correct authorities to contact, that will be appreciated.
