I have a brand new Philippine passport. All of the pages are crisp and my bio page is perfectly fine. On Sept 1, returning to Canada from the US (I have a Canada Permanent Resident card), an Immigration officer in Canada removed the stapled i94 paper attached to my passport as I need to surrender it. The next day, upon checking, I noticed a little rip or nick on the edge of one of my passport pages (page 15) where an admittance stamp was, but it was not torn. I guess he did not use staple remover.
This coming Monday, I will be flying to Paris with my husband departing from Toronto. So, I have no time to renew. I want to know if my passport is not considered damaged for as long as overall passport and the bio page are intact and good condition? Will this be acceptable to France border upon arrival, within Schengen areas and Canada too upon return?
