When you renew a passport-Do you keep the same number? I need to complete paperwork with my passport number (time is not an issue here) but do I need to wait to finish the paperwork until after the new passport comes back?
Your old passport will be expired, as will the passport number. Your old passport will be returned with holes punched thru the photo page and Cancelled stamped on it. Thus, the Passport Agency will issue you a new passport with new photos (that you supply) and a new passport number.
Hope this helps.
Just got my new passport with new numbers and the old one back with the holes punched in it.
What do you all do with the old one?? I can't figure out why they even send it back since it's no good.
