Cos i dont like taking my new one around and i dont have time to send off for a proper ID card...
in about two years of doing it constantly. And I was 12 in the picture.
using an out-of-date passport
but you might get away with it.
but not often spotted, and no one will do anything bad to you if they do notice
I managed to successfully use my 1998-99 NUS card.
should be fine right?
but some places DID make an issue of it, i managed to charm my way around some but i was turned away form a few places.
they do say 'VALID passport only.
but it is fricking stupid, what cos its out of date the information is no longer true?
it IS proof.
the policy is just STOOPID AND I HATE IT AND I HATE EVERYOIEN DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE
as, well, this person said that even though they're out of date, that's only relevant if you want to leave the country or something. your d.o.b. is still valid.
i dunno though.
others have no problem with it, and find it hilarious that you're 12 in the photo.
I've been turned away from quite a few places, one of the most common reasons cited 'it's out of date, it's not valid', responses of, I'm still the same person don't go down so well.
I've also had,'it could be forged'.
My take on it, if they're cuntish enough not to let you in on something so ridiculous, it's not worth your time going in there anyway.
for out-of-date passports. Easy to change the details and so on.
Still, can't imagine anyone is using altered, out-of-date passports to get into pubs and clubs
at the moment i only have my old uni i.d and my FULL birth certificate whichc i sent off for as proof of i.d for the job agencies, it being cheaper than a passport whicch i cant currently afford.
i've tried to use it as i.d when i've been i'ded and some poeple have said 'this could be a fake'
if i was going to bother going to get fake i.d why would i get something that isnt on the list of acceptable forms of i.d?!
"if i was going to bother going to get fake i.d why would i get something that isnt on the list of acceptable forms of i.d?!"
Then I got a new passport and they cut the corner off the old one. Next time I tried to use my old passport it got refused, I said "but I've been using this out of date passport for years" it made no difference.
Doormen and women, barstaff and shopkeerkers essentially have the right to refuse entry or to serve you on any grounds
But at my work we have to verify ID and the Home Office guidelines say an out-of-date passport is fine.
I was thinking about it in a very booze-centric sense. How wacky am I?
that the Home Office will fuck up all their shit.
I've been told I can't use it as proof of ID in a bank or when applying for a job.
but then we actually checked the guidelines and it turns out it's fine for proof of ID and right to work in the UK.
