If she's legally residing in the UK then she would be free to travel between the UK and CI.

You don't actually even need a passport to travel, just photo id required by the airline, although always best to have it if immigration decide to check you out.

See you on the Sailing Club terrace

She better be legal ! Cheers - I its been a long time I flew over privatly so I take for granted what a UK passport lets you get away with when abroad .

I knew someone would now. I just need to convince her now .. maybe just book it and then tell her ...job done.

I cant really add anything to Martini's post, but thought I would add some drivel anyway.

Channel Islands immigration are very very unlikely to request a passport, as Matt says currently you don't need a passport to travel between the British Islands. Though this is set to change at some point in the middle future.

On your return to Blighty you will obviously be fine, as your other half has the stamp what says so.

I too look forward to you buying us a beer on Friday lunchtime, that is the 22nd of July.
