So everything we’ve been hearing about the renewed passport by hand and the Biometric passports being rolled out is wrong. I traveled with a renewed by hand passport without anyone stopping me and I just got a new passport for 5 years without anyone warning me about the new Biometric passport.

I thought we were only allowed to renew the passport for 1 year but apparently that’s not the case. Now we have to wait and see if the authorities are going to force us to switch to biometric passports once they are out.
