Recently my family members passports are damaged, due to the water leakage from my baby’s feeding bottle. Even though the passports are kept in safe place in the bag, water went inside and damaged the front pages. Luckily, only 20% of the photo alone got damaged and rest of area is still in a good state. Next week, I may go for the Visa process at Singapore Emigration office, after that only, I will exactly know, whether I need to apply for new or survive with the current one.
Learning from the incident: 1. Take the passport photo with White background – the photo with blue background aggravated the damage by spreading the color to other area. For the same reason, it is good to take the photo with light color dress. 2. Don’t believe your water proof bags, take some extra care, like polythene cover, to protect the passport.
