    You should be fine as EU member countries only require a valid passport for EU members to enter. No expiry period is specified as for non-Eu nationalities.

    First of all i would like to say is that 'david' is perfectly right about the passport validity thing. No matter where you are, you can travel till your passport is valid. In case it expires in between then you can also renew it by keeping in contact with your embassy. So don't worry and enjoy your trip.

    And sorry don't have sufficient knowledge to guide you Asgar Ali.

    Asgar - it seems obvious, but you need to apply for a visa through the British consulate in Dubai. Unless your passport is held by your employer.

    aceldelmon - it is NOT true that all passport are always accepted until expired: unless you are an EU national travelling within the EU, a passport should have 6 months left to run before expiring.
