Just washed my passport

Recommended Posts

My Canadian passport just went through a washing machine.

 

All pages are there but everything is pretty washed up.

 

I am on a marriage non-o multiple entry visa.

 

Do I need to reapply for a visa or it can be "transferred"?

 

I will go tomorrow to Canadian embassy and reapply for a new passport. The problem is I need to leave the country before October 11th.

 

I am screwed. Any advice?

Do you have a visa or an extension of stay?

 

A visa is toast, although the consulate that issued it may be able to do a replacement (at a cost near that of a new visa).

 

An extension should be recoverable by the immigration office that issued it.

I got visa, not extension of stay. I got a visa at Savannakhet.

 

The other problem is I am not married anymore. 

 

Will they replace a visa?

You might still be able to use the visa if it is somewhat legible.

Not sure a the consulate in Savannakhet would replace it.

You can leave, but you may not be allowed to return.

 

Can you obtain a new Passport by 11th October?

Where's your out of Country trip to. Would you be able to get a new Non Imm O ME (assuming you get a new Passport) from a Thai Embassy/Consulate in that Country.

 

Alternatively you may have to cancel/re-arrange your trip.

Very unfortunate timing to wash a Passport.

You mean keep the 2 passports?

 

It is legible, but some numbers under barcode at the bottom are not readable.

Yes

You would use both passports for entry to the country.

Those numbers are not that important. The valid until date is the most important.

I tried scanning my washed passport at the airport on the way to the embassy, mine didn't look too bad but wouldn't scan.

If it won't scan your visa is toast

Immigration does not scan visas. They only scan passports.
