I had a sticker placed on my passport at Brisbane airport (inside last page) that states:


It's blue and grayish.

Would I have a problem or denied boarding if I have this sticker going back to Australia?

Thanks, Brian

I've always had them placed on the back of the Passport. They are meant to indicate the document has been inspected, that day.

Would I have a problem...going back to Australia?

No. The country of origin won't care and it's essentially expired in Australia.

I and many others have removed them after completing that journey. No problems yet.

  • Indeed. How could there be a problem, after all? How would anyone know? – phoog Feb 8 at 14:09

No, you will not have a problem. It says DO NOT REMOVE, so don't remove it.

    Are you serious? That’s only valid for that travel day and flight. I have several such on my passport. – user 56513 Feb 8 at 8:00
  • Me too. I just leave them there, they're not a problem. – Greg Hewgill Feb 8 at 8:01

    @MJeffryes I always take them off when I'm done traveling. In fact I think it's safe to remove them once you've boarded the plane. – phoog Feb 8 at 14:07
