My Indian passport has got loose stitching; will it be considered damaged? I have a trip to Singapore coming up in 7-10 days. Will this create any problems at Immigration? While the stitching is worn, all the other parts, like photo and my details, are not damaged.

  • Do you have an Android phone with NFC? Can it still be read electronically? play.google.com/store/apps/… – Stephan Branczyk Jun 5 '18 at 12:44
  • @StephanBranczyk I've never heard of a passport inspector refusing a passport because the NFC communication was broken. Have you? – phoog Jun 5 '18 at 14:48
  • @phoog I think Stephan might have meant a working RFID will reassure the inspector that it is all genuine, negating that loose stitches might otherwise cause suspicion of forgery. – user16259 Jun 5 '18 at 15:42
  • Yes, what user16259 said. – Stephan Branczyk Jun 6 '18 at 0:50
  • @Branczyk Indian Passports do not have NFC technology. What to do next? – Karan Parseja Jun 7 '18 at 17:59
