New Passport Help

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi -

After reading the forums and mainly the embassy reviews, a few threads say that your passport needs to be in great condition, with no frays or bends etc. Well, after traveling a lot, my passport looks a little worse for ware. It's pealing a little on the picture page, so I'm guessing this won't fly with the interviewers etc.

So, I'm happy paying to get a new passport, even same day, but do I notify the embassy, NVC..... anyone? Do I just take my old passport into the embassy with me and tell no one?

Any advice/knowledge will be great.

Thanks in Advance!

Quite a few people have gone to the interview in London with a new passport. It has never been an issue. No need to notify anybody in advance. It says somewhere on the embassy website that you should bring all old passports to the interview. That doesn't seem to be anything they actually require in the real world. Nothing happens if you don't. I suppose if you had a previous visa that needed to be cancelled before they issued a new one, then maybe having the visa would be a good idea.
