The date in my UK passport isn't in the usual format (day, month, year) it shows as-
Date off issue 20 DEC /DEC 10 Date of expiration 20 DEC /DEC 20
bit confusing but I'm guessing it means it expires in Dec 2020..can anyone confirm this?
If you're uncertain about the human-readable date, check the expiry field in the machine-readable zone, in which the format is standardized worldwide.
The date of expiry is in character positions 22 through 27 in the second line (immediately after the
F that encodes your sex), in YYMMDD format.
"20 DEC/DEC 20" means 20th December, 2020. The repetition is because the month name is given both in English (abbreviating "December") and French ("Décembre"). My own passport, for example, was issued on dd MAY/MAI yy (May/Mai) and expires on dd JUL/JUI yy (July/Juillet).
