This morning, I went to submit my documents at the VFS office. The VFS officer informed me that my passport looks damaged. Until she said that, I never noticed anything abnormal. My pages are holding good, my cover is intact. The only thing I noticed was there is a bit of gap between first and second page at the top.
I went ahead and submitted my passport, with an undertaking letter. Hopefully, my visa will come through fine.
Does this count as damaged? In case my visa is approved, is it advisable to apply for new passport before travel?
