My ten years is up and my passport needs renewing. Thankfully it’s a much easier affair than getting an FM3 work visa! You just get 10 years with a European passport, and I have only 2 months left on mine. Which means it’s already useless to travel to anywhere other than the UK.
The forms are easy enough and I just have to drop it all off to the British Embassy. One form. Two photos. My old passport. And MXN $2,600!! What a rip off! Damn these e-passports with their chips in! Oh well, such is life. I’ve still got plenty of room in my old passport, it’s only half full. Still, I collected a few cool stamps along the way. Only Panama and Egypt have ever given me real stamps though, which look much cooler!
