I have some landings lips from Macau and Hong Kong. When these landing slips were first introduced, they were stapled into your passport, now you are just getting a piece of paper.

I would like to keep them for future uses (like proving my travel history on applying for some visas) but I know for sure that I will lose them if they won't be in my passport. That's why I want to glue or staple them to my passport.

Is it allowed or is it considered as tampering and I shouldn't do this?

    I wouldn't do this. I would consider getting a passport cover or a travel wallet with a passport pocket to keep them together. – phoog Nov 21 '18 at 13:52

    I imagine it’s the same as the response to this question about making notations in your passport - namely that it’s legal for immigration officers to do things that you can’t: travel.stackexchange.com/q/88253/17153 – RoboKaren Nov 21 '18 at 15:58

    I have Hong Kong, Macau, Israel and Transnistria slips glued onto pages of both of my passports (Ireland and Canada) for souvenir purposes. This has been the case for some years now and I've never had an issue. I also have souvenir stamps from Checkpoint Charlie and Dorasan station, again no issues. However, it may cause issues based on your nationality and destination and these are what you should look into. – Richard Nov 21 '18 at 16:22

    It's unlikely to cause a problem but why take the risk? – greatone Nov 21 '18 at 17:01
  • @RoboKaren it's a little bit different: landing slips are something that immigration officer gives you and 5 years ago they did staple them into your passport so if that was acceptable 5 years ago, why it shouldn't be acceptable now? – Arthur Kalimullin Nov 23 '18 at 13:56
