You can't be denied a passport simply because you're forgetful, but you might be denied expedited processing. Somewhere, an officer is wondering what happened to all those passports you lost, and whether they might have been stolen or misused. The reasons why one might be denied a US passport include: Failing to fill out the application completely Failing ...

Most likely not a problem but at least in one case Passenger refused flight over missing letter on airline ticket -- but the title is sensational if you read carefully all the airline said they can't guarantee the connecting airline won't have a problem. This thread reports a number of cases when this hasn't been a problem. This forum post says Turns ...

If your business visa was obtained while working for a UK company, or if you worked at a UK company after 2005, then the Human Resources department of that company would have taken a photocopy of the portrait page. You can contact the HR department and ask them to give you a copy of their copy, or simply to tell you the passport number. They are only ...

While Jonas' answer is indeed the legal situation but note: there is no penalty for breaking this particular law and more importantly, no US citizen can be denied entry to the USA if said person can prove citizenship. This is more generic than the USA, this is one of the fundamental meanings of citizenship. A birth certificate is a good start, the more IDs ...

Your visa can be used throughout its validity period, unless cancelled or revoked. Hence you will be able to enter the USA on your current B-1/B-2 visa since it is hasn't expired yet. Moreover, the visa remains valid until it expires (ha, nice tautology). This is true regardless if it is contained in an invalid/expired passport. All you need to do is make ...

All airlines will check that you have a valid passport and documentation before they board you. And most do record this information in your booking, even if they aren't required to submit it via APIS and such. However there are no universal rules as to when they gather this info, other than the rule that they are required to check it BEFORE boarding you. ...

Yes, this can be require depending on the type and destination. For example, some countries insist that you have six months left before expiry date, and also, visa requirements are different for different nationalities. As a result, she may be being extra diligent, and preventing you from encountering a problem when you check in for your flight and they ...

Well, I can't guarantee that it will "never" cause you problems, but it's very unlikely to. Your name has not changed, your new passport just corrects a clerical error. You have not returned to any of the countries that would potentially have records of you entering with your old passport. You were already allowed entry into Turkey, US and South Korea, ...

In a nutshell, for every possible 180-day window, you can spend 90 of those days in the Schengen area, regardless of your start and end dates of the journeys. In that sense, maybe it's easier for you to think about it the other way around, like in every 180-day period there should be 90 days that you are not in the Schengen area. By leaving a 5-month gap ...

I will use the Canadian recommendations -- when entering into a foreign country they are very unlikely to look up the laws of your particular home country so this is good as a general guideline. A few choice quotes, but you need to read the whole page: A consent letter is not a legal requirement in Canada, but it can simplify travel for Canadian ...

You need to fill in the very simple List of Documents Required for Fresh Passport Issuance form and check in the results whether the leaving certificate is there. I am reasonable sure it is not. You need the birth certificate and current address proofs.

In the time when I needed visas to enter Russia I queued at their consulates on three different continents. I have also queued at various bureaucracies inside Russia. On balance, I saw no difference between the two. It's part of what is and I doubt that questions put directly to staff will yield up anything more valuable. In my experience each Russian ...

TL;DR: No. The situation you describe is almost certainly entirely the Russians' own doing. The host country for an embassy gets very little say about that embassy's activities. They can refuse the letters of credence of an incoming ambassador, but this is a major diplomatic snub and is not too far off from breaking diplomatic relations entirely. They ...

It is fine to leave Australia on your Aussie passport and present your UK passport when you arrive. It's common practice for dual nationals. Upon arrival, join the EU queue. And yes, it will be faster most of the time. They are entitled to ask how long you have been out of the UK and where you have been since you last left. For your other question: are ...

According to federal law, a passport should be issued within 3 months of the date of application. (note that the date quotes below are not the edition date of the law, but rather the registration date, as some sources put it -- something akin to the date of the first passage of the given law, which then can get amended multiple times, still bearing the ...

Entering Canada by land: A birth certificate and photo identification should be enough to enter Canada. Returning to the U.S. by land: A birth certificate is enough for children under 16. But your daughter is 17. Children 16-18 can also cross with just a birth certificate if they are in some kind of a group; that probably doesn't help. An "enhanced ...

Absolutely not. No airline will accept a photocopy of an ID since it'd be trivial to counterfeit one. And these days just about every airline wants to know who flies with them for two reasons: a) avoid people with some evil intent b) allow identifying victims of a crash. Air India on the topic: For domestic travel within India, valid photo ...

So to clarify: Your old passport is correct Your old visa is correct Your new passport has it wrong It's definitely something you'll want to do, to prevent problems. Yes, it'll likely be clear what has happened, but given how strict the US is - for their own passports, they offer a FREE, expedited service for correcting passports, which are prioritised ...

If you overstayed, noone will stop you on the way out, they will be quite happy to see you go. You'll have a problem the next time you try to enter. The embassy issued travel document will be fine, that's what it's for.

As you are British, you are from the EU, and you only need a national identity card to enter the Schengen area (Spain in your case). According to this good Wikipedia article on the Scengen visa policy, you should even "be afforded every reasonable opportunity to obtain the necessary documents or have them brought to them within a reasonable period of time ...

As far as my information goes, if you do not update the Canadian Nexus system with a new passport number, neither Global Entry nor Nexus will work at the kiosk if you enter the U.S. with your Nexus pass. As per Central Border Services Agency, NEXUS members must report to an Enrolment Centre to update or change all other information including: ...
