Visa Stamp picture on phone

Recommended Posts

Some people carry around copies of their Passport's info and visa stamp pages. Although technically illegal it's a nice compromise between risk of loss and satisfying police.

 

Does anyone do this with phone snapshots? Or even a video of you showing your info and stamp page so it's proven to be from the same passport?

I keep the entire passport history and supporting documents in a "vault" folder on my Android.  Nit sure why anyone would cal this "technically illegal?"  I also made my own very official looking credit card sized "passport card" which is cheerfully accepted in many places.  Especially handy for entering building where you need to leave an ID ... and not wanting to leave your actual passport with a high school kid in a uniform (See: "Security Guard)

I got many of my documents in the DropBox. The copy of passport I needed at check-in in a hospital I just sent by email from my mobile to the hospital's mail account and everybody was happy. I was even good enough at AIS to register a SIM, they took a photo of my mobile showing the passport page in the gallery.

I keep high quality imagines of passport I.D. page, visas and stamp pages, vaccination records, birth certificate,  licenses, last will and testament, and other important documents on my iPhone,  in two separate clouds, and a two hidden flash drives stored in different places. 

      I figure I might lose the originals and my iPhone might get stolen or lost. 

       But I will always have copies of my important documents and photos someplace. 

    Much easier to replace these documents if you have high quality clear images of the originals. Very important are the important sets of numbers associated with these documents. 

    Imagine losing those documents, losing your wallet, passport and phone and having no copies or records. 

     Having your important documents and photos copied into a couple of clouds and flash drives gives peace of mind.

I keep images of passport ID page, current visa, and most recent entry stamp and TM6 card on my mobile. Never needed to show them, but I've at least something to show if asked. No idea if they'd be accepted, but I'm not about to carry my passport around with me.

Same here

No never. Loose your phone too much information can be scammed

The images are encrypted.

As an earlier poster wrote - we do not have to carry our passport but we do have to produce it on demand.

 

I just carry my Thai driver licence and I have never needed anything else - even on domestic flights.
