It is each passenger's responsibility to carry a travel document which meets the requirements of Ryanair immigration and other authorities. You can check visa and passport requirements by contacting the Consulate or Embassy of the country you are planning to visit.
All non EU passport holders, travelling into a Schengen member country are obliged to ensure that their passport is valid for at least 3 months from the date of their departure from the Schengen member country. This requirement does not apply to holders of a Schengen issued residence permit or long term visas.

From 1st October 2021, nationals of the EEA/EU or Switzerland travelling to the United Kingdom must be in possession of a valid passport, as National ID cards issued by the EEA/EU and Switzerland are no longer acceptable to enter the UK (unless you hold a form of residence status in the UK).

If you are a UK passport holder travelling into a EU member country (except Ireland), as of 1 January 2021, you must make sure your passport:

  • is valid for at least three months from the date you will leave the EU member country, unless the person has a EU-issued residence permit or an EU long-term visa.
  • should be issued within the previous ten years upon the date of arrival.
  • is your responsibility to make sure your passport is valid to travel to/from the EU
  •  

If you are travelling on UK domestic and Irish routes the above will not apply to you.
