Hi all. We're heading off on holiday soon and I'm a bit worried about DS's passport. I had his passport photo taken when he was about a month old and he's now 2.5. So obviously looks NOTHING like the picture now at all. I was told when we first applied that his first passport should last him til he's 5, so I'm just after some reassurance that this is the case? I know customs are quite fussy these days about making sure people have an accurate photo - should we get a new photo done before we go away??
DD1's passport was issued when she was 8 months old and she is now 5.5, it expires in sept. the customs woman did laugh last time we went through and said "good job this is about to expire, she could be anyone!"
if they are concerned they have more complex checks, face shape, eye spacing, nose to mouth distance etc... which does actually stay remarkably consistent.
