UK - minimum passport validity

Jump to last reply

A friend of mine is off to the UK in 3 weeks. He resides in Australia and holds an Australian passport. He is a little unorganised and has told me a few things of concern:

1) he has bought a one-way ticket as he is unsure when exactly he will return, but is not expecting to be there more than a few months

2) his passport runs out this September

I have advised him to look into both of these issues urgently as I am concerned he may not get entry into the UK with the above documents. I had in my mind that passports generally require a minimum 6 month validity for a country to accept a visitor. I've been looking on a number of UK government sites, but can't find a direct reference to a minimum time.

In relation to the one-way ticket I have seen something stating a traveller must prove they have the financial means to leave the country, but it didn't state it must be a return ticket.

Can anyone offer any further advice on minimum passport validity and one-way v return tickets?
