I've asked the question to an employee at the French Embassy in Bangkok working on issuing new passports does accept: she couldn't think of any use of the address indicated on a French passport. So it's unlikely that the address indicated on a French passport has any major role, if any. lambshaanxy's answer gives the best reason I can think of, and Mark ...

Relaxed's answer based on their experience in Europe is correct: unlike what https://th.ambafrance.org/Passeport-d-un-majeur-renouvellement-en-cas-de-pages-epuisees-modification-etat states, the French Embassy in Bangkok does accept proofs of domicile that are written in English. No need to translate it. As a side note, the French Embassy in Bangkok has a ...

Since the introduction of the 'International' Passport in the 1920's, passports should have a Domicile entry (Page 2 of sample passport, Annex 1 of 1920 Conference, page 156 of pdf). The recommendations do not state the purpose or what this field should contain. However since the general agreement about the issuing of visas states, as a general rule, that ...

In theory, if you lose your passport and someone finds it, they could mail it to your address. Alternatively, if you have some sort of incapacitating emergency, somebody could contact you at the address. Here's an Australian passport's address page which makes this explicit: In practice, this never happens. If you lose your passport while travelling, you ...

No. You, as the national of a visa-exempt country, may visit the Schengen Area for up to 90 days per 180-day period. Whether you hold more the one passport from the same country (it is legal in some situations) or hold passports from more than one country is irrelevant. You would still be the same person.

Generally, long term visas and multi-entry visas do receive greater scrutiny, as the country would need to assess not only your trustworthiness for one trip but also the future ones. A multi-entry visa also requires additional justification. In particular, I believe in general Indonesia requires a specific purpose and an Indonesian sponsor for multi-entry ...

As you might have noticed, “Justificatif du domicile lisible en langue française” is a very odd turn of phrase in French. If the document had to be in the French language, the natural way to state that would have been “Justificatif du domicile en langue française”. I suspect they mean that they cannot process documents in Asian scripts and reserve the right ...

It's fine to ask for a new passport whenever you want. I did that with a passport that got wet but was not severely damaged and the consulate had zero issues with it. There is more pushback with national ID cards, because those are free (for you, they still cost money to produce and handle obviously) and they are probably concerned about people abusing this.

You will need to provide a certified translation in French provided by a translator acceptable to the French authorities. Many countries have similar requirements for documents in a foreign language. A Google search for 'Certified Translators in Bangkok' threw up a number of places that might be able to help, but whether they can handle an English to French ...

Another example: Hong Kong is no longer a British territory, but the British National (Overseas) passport is still valid despite its associated entity "British Hong Kong" being defunct. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_National_(Overseas)_passport

The order of Malta does not control any territory any longer, (It is definitely not controlling Malta) but it still issues passport which are accepted by at least 110 countries and territorials https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sovereign_Military_Order_of_Malta_passport

Assuming you are in the US (since I only know that some Canadian provinces and US states issue EDLs, and Canada does not have a passport card), you would need to apply as a first time applicant. An EDL is not actually a passport card, even though they both Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative compliant travel documents used for land and sea travel. Passport (...

Passports and ID cards of the German Democratic Republic, that were generally valid for 10 years, became invalid after the 31st of December 1995 (more than 60 months after the reunification). At the end of January 1995, general announcements were made making people aware of this, so that a timely exchange could be made. Personalausweise und Reisepässe der ...

This scenario is definitely possible. For example, the Soviet Union broke up in 1991, but continued to issue passports until 1997, with 5-year validity extending to 2002, over 10 years later. However, I'm not aware of any current cases where this is possible, because machine-readable passport validity is limited to ten years and (AFAIK) no country has ...

In general, if a country accepts another country's passport it is implicitly acknowledging the existence of that country. This is why sometimes the use of passports is a big issue in international relations. The poster example would be the issues between the People's Republic of China and the Republic of China (Taiwan). You may travel from one to the other, ...

I think it would go against the concept of a passport for it to be valid after the existence of the state itself. In its most basic sense, a passport is a request for someone to be granted passage through another state. See the Wikipedia article on passports. If the country ceases to exist, then its request for passage would as well. For example, my Canadian ...

US Citizens don't need a visa and can enter without a passport provided they can show an original or notarised birth certificate to prove their citizenship, and that they have a return or through ticket to a country that will accept them. (Source) Whilst it might be technically possible to fly without a passport, returning to the US with just a birth ...

Short answer: He will have no problems leaving the country. Your son cannot be denied entry into the US. He may get questioned or yelled at by CBP but he will get in, if he manages to get to the border in the first place However, no airline will let him board a US bound flight with an expired US passport As a dual citizen you are required to use your US ...
