My friend (Indian) is in another country and he had to tear last page of his passport because that page captured some water droplets and if he wouldn't have teared it would had affected other pages as well. I suggest him to visit Indian embassy in that country and talk to them.

What do you think its fine to his passport would be considered damaged and he needs to get it fixed? How much time it take to get new passport in a different country?

  • To be sure I'm understanding correctly, has your friend torn a page out of his passport because it got wet?

    You ask how long it would take to get a new passport in a different country - please could you tell us what country your friend is in so we can answer your question?

  • @Traveller I'm not sure that's a good dupe. That passport has a detached cover and has already been refused for travel; this one has a torn page and it's not clear how torn. Mar 29, 2019 at 11:14

    He shouldn't have done that. he should have dried the wet page, while holding the passport open to avoid getting water on the other pages. Mar 29, 2019 at 12:44

A passport with a page torn out of it will certainly be considered damaged (at best), and is very likely to cause problems if presented to border agents. Your friend should replace the passport.

According to the Embassy of India in Germany, replacing a passport typically takes around 2-3 weeks. The processing time may be different in other countries.
