I recently renewed my US passport. Under "Endorsements" on the photo page, the new passport says "SEE PAGE 27". However, page 27 is blank, as are all the other visa/endorsement pages.
My previous passport had a similar endorsement, with the endorsement page listing my full legal name (I have middle names which are apparently too long for the photo page). It seems like perhaps they forgot to print this note on the endorsement page in the new passport.
Since it seems like it may be a major hassle to get this passport corrected, especially given the notorious backlog that the US passport office is having at present, could I just go ahead and use it as is? Or am I likely to experience serious problems at US or foreign ports of entry (major delays, refusal of entry, or worse) if the immigration officer notices the missing endorsement? Would I need to offer any other explanation besides "it came like that"?
(The National Passport Information Center refused to answer this question by email, and their call center is too overloaded to be usable.)
