New British passport last page

Post by Cure123 » Wed Jun 09, 2021 4:00 pm

Hi All,

I have received my passport today and I have noticed I have what look like a left of page at the end of the passport, the while section in the picture attached. Do all the new passport has the same thing?Image

I have it in my passport too. It is not mentioned in this Home Office document describing basic passport checks. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.u ... _02.20.pdf

Out of curiosity I checked my German passport (issued 02/2020) and it's got the same strip - seems like standard.
My British passport (12/2016) doesn't have this, so the binding must have change a bit, maybe an additional security feature - if that thin strip is missing perhaps someone tampered with the passport.
This is just my opinion as a member of this forum and does not constitute immigration advice.

It is not a left off page. It is the extension coming down securing the first page which is like a plastic card having your picture on!
Mine is same issued Feb 2021.

CULLINAN is right. This is what's called a passport hinge - passport booklets are like any other booklets, paper pages and a cover sewn/bound together. When you use a plastic data page, which is a very specific hard-wearing type of plastic used in many passports around the world, sewing that into the booklet is an issue as you can't just sew that plastic page into the booklet. There are different types of hinges different countries use/companies make to solve the issue but they all basically do the same - use flexible material, stick that into your plastic page when you make it in a way that that page cannot be replaced or tampered with, stick that into the booklet and then sew it together. You end up with a small part of the hinge sticking out the other end of the booklet, there's no way around it.
