If my new passport arrives late for my visa extention?

Recommended Posts

I recently had a passport lost.(Feb 2017)

I got a temporary 1 year emergency passport from the U.S. embassy  here in Bangkok   immediately on application for a new passport (for travel out of country if needed).

However my new U.S. passport arrived  only 7 days from the date of application, so the emergency passport was not needed after all.

Good and quick service from the U.S. embassy.

Canadian embassy keeps passport and gives it back, after renewal, with a corner cut to nullify it.

 

No Embassy can keep anyone's passport in Thailand. When you apply for a UK renewal, they say do not send old one, but cut the corner off yourself when the new one arrives.

Just make sure you only cut the cover

If you chop of any more, ie all the way through on every page you might invalidate any visas that are still current. I know, nobody is silly enough to do that. ?

sorry,u screwed up, why did u wait so long to apply for a new passport?
u knew it was going to expire so has nothing to do with ur eye surgery..

 

PS   I got a new US passport 4 years before it was due to expire cause it was full (along with 2 extra pages)

you dont need give any reason, nor did they ask

No they don't, they say take it to Trendy when collecting the new one and Trendy will cut the corner off.

You DON'T Send the Old U.K Passport anywhere, You have to present yourself in person to COLLECT The NEW Passport & They will ASK You to cut the corners off the old one there & then,Once you APPLY For a New Passport,The OLD one is No good for travel anyway,Only use as a form of ID....

Also If you request the 2 July on the form for a travel date, etc... They will get your passport back ASAP or at least they did for me.

They tell 'you' it's no use for travel but they don't tell anyone else. It doesn't go on any database anywhere,  so you could still do a weekend somewhere nearby, Malaysia for instance, no visa required and no-one will know the difference, unless you tell them.

That is quite true, but I do not recommend people do something like that without a really good reason. If you needed consular assistance while outside Thailand (for instance, lost passport or arrest unrelated to your passport status) the consulate would soon become aware of you status, and are unlikely to be amused. I can well imagine them insisting on confiscating the old passport, and furnishing you with an emergency travel document allowing travel only back to the UK.

Have you ever had 4 eye surgeries one after the other in 6 months?  In those cases, passport renewal is last on your mind, you simply want to get on with a good vision.  By the way my next passport is valid for 10 years instead of 5 years.  In any case a doctor certificate will settle any problem but those doctors are so busy I wanted to let them doing what they are good for, that is to save eyes.

Thank you all for your good advises.  The old passport was already cancelled yesterday and a new passport is issued.  I only hope it arrives before 3 July.  Case closed.

You do not have to collect it in person, my wife collected mine.
