Hello guys,

I'm quite confused over my passport which is lightly water damaged only on the second page and RPO's signature is lightly smeared. Let me know if I've to apply for an issue of new passport. I checked with the embassy of the country to which I"m planning a trip, they took a look at my passport and said they've no issue in stamping visa as first and last pages are intact but I'm worried if it would be problem at Airport especially in the immigration check of other airports as I would be travelling in a Schengen visa.

I've attached picture of my second page, please advice me on what to do.

Regards,
Niranjan

Niranjan, there are countries which do not react adversely in such situation.

But it may cause problem, as signature of issuing officer has got damaged.

If you have time, please get the passport reissued...

Hi Amit,

I took my passport to RPO office and showed it to them, on seeing it they asked me to get a new one and asked me to apply for reissue of passport under Tatkal. I applied for tatkal but during my tatkal appointment GO on looking at my passport said since RPO's sign is smudged, authenticity of my passport cannot be verified and told me to get it reissued under normal category and gave me a new appointment for applying under normal category the next day. Next day all process went fine and I requested my Granting Officer to give Post Police verification as I needed my passport urgently, he did give and I got my passport on the 3rd working day. I went on Thursday and go my new passport on Tuesday the following week.
