Passport holder. Unpractical?

  1. You don't need to remove the cover if you are going through the kiosk and it's also not inconvenient. In the recent years of travelling in Asia, I had no issues about removing my passport, unless specifically requested so. I think that getting a passport cover prevents busybodies from trying to figure out the traveller's nationality.
     
  2. I've been using a passport cover for a few years and never have felt inconvenienced when traveling with it. Yes you do need to remove it from the cover sometimes, but normally it isn't an issue.
     
  3. I am wondering about the size of the passport cover. I mean, are not passports from different countries in different sizes? I have no clue, but this keeps me from looking for a cover.
     
  4. Really? I thout it was equal all over..
     
  5. Depends on how often you travel internationally.

    My DH bought me one a few years back, I exchanged it for something else.

    It would be sad to have it hidden in a closet for so long!
     
  6. I don't know about the machines, but I echo those who have said that they are always asked to remove the passport from the cover when they're being checked at passport control. I have always been asked to do this. I don't mind, because I don't want someone else carelessly handling my LV!
     

  7. I am only guessing. Why should it be equal?


    The size of paper money is also not equal.
     
  8. I’m bumping this thread to see if everyone is still happy - or not! - with their passport cover? Has anything changed with immigration that has made using it easier or more difficult?
    I am thinking of ordering a non monogram one. I do have the Hermes globetrotter also. Should I just stick to that? Whaat have you experienced recently?
     
  9. Most international airports have moved to a machine system where you scan your passport yourself and the machine takes your photo, etc. I have to remove my cover every time, which is annoying. I m thinking about switching to the Hermès Tarmac.

  10. The medium POCHETTE KIRIGAMI can put few passports.
     
  11. I’ve just ordered the kirigami set and have decided to use the middle one for a passport cover. I’ve never used a traditional passport cover before due to the inconvenience but this seems simple to remove for immigration.

  12. Oh I didn’t think off kirigami set. That is a great idea!
     
  13. This is what I use mine for. I can fit boarding passes, tickets etc in too. It’s handy and stylish.

    I think that’s a great idea about the middle kiragami. Thanks guys. That’s exactly what I’m going to use for our passports.
