  • the chips are only garunteed to work for 2 yrs anyway, when the passport is valid for 10. I just sent off to renew my passport, no interview, I filled in a form online, they send the printout to me, I send it back signed with a photo, my old passport and a cheque for £66ish

    renewing it this time has been easier than last time because last time I had to go to the post office to get a form and fill it in by hand.

    I just hope if my chip breaks that I dont have to pay another £66 to get a replacement passport or that I dont get stuck halfway across the world cos my passport doesnt have a working chip.

    hahaha yeah i was saying that about glasto "don't worry about the photo registration! it's no big deal! in a few years you will just swipe your microchip at the gate and BEEP! you're in! easy! :D what's the problem?"


    that would be so funny if like after two years with your passport you turn up with it and the chip is all beaten up with stab marks in it and stuff


    "it erm... broke... yes..." :D
