Ever so slightly damaged passport and border crossings

Post by clairemartin »

Hi everyone,

Wondering if anyone could let me know whether border crossings in Central Asia are incredibly scrutinous about passport condition? I just noticed last night I had a bit of ink on my photo page, and when rubbing it off managed to get the very corner (which is just paper, it doesn't affect the laminate at all) wet and it now looks a bit dog-eared, plus there's still a tiny bit of ink right at the bottom of the photo page (below all of the information). The laminate is fully intact. I think it should be fine but just not sure how picky they are at land borders.

I am on a long overland trip at the moment and have already left (in Vietnam now) and I don't think I can get a new one out of the UK, plus it has my Chinese and Mongolian visas in, but it would be good to know how scrutinous border staff typically are.

Thanks!
