Getting a fresh new passport

Post by xandreu » Thu Jun 14, 2018 1:58 pm

So I've got my nice new visa-less UK passport and had the corner cut off of my old one to show that it's now dead.

Just wondering how does it work now if I want to leave and re-enter the KOW? I have a multi-entry visa in my old passport which doesn't expire until October. Do I just have to take both passports with me when travelling> And which one do they stamp? Or do I have to have the visa transferred over to my new passport?

Thanks

carry both passports, they will see the visa in the old one and stamp you in on the new one till ur visa expires.

^ Correct.

But be aware if using land border crossings as their have been several reports recently of people being in the same situation denied exit without an Exit Visa in their new passport.

No problems entering/Existing via air though.

OMG don't say that. I'm doing a visa run via Poipet with my new passport next month.
