Default Passports

Right, pay attention, this isn't easy to explain.

Previously the passport in which I had my UAE visa (passport 1) had expired, and was replaced by a new passport (passport 2). Passport 1 had its corners clipped by the Passport Office when it was returned to me with passport 2; it was also removed from the Passport Database (operated by the Passport Office).

Passports 1 and 2 were stapled together, and it was that combination I used to enter and exit UAE (and elsewhere).

The UAE visa in passport 1 has expired, and I have a new visa in passport 2. So passport 2 alone will now suffice. However, passport 2 has only a couple of pages left, and despite the best laid plans I'm not going to have time to renew it (I'm currently in UK).

I have a "second" passport (passport 3). I intend to clip the corners of passport 2, attach it to passport 3, and use them together in the same way that I did passports 1 and 2.

I've checked this with the Passport Office: they confirm that it isn't illegal, although it might be considered fraudulent by the UAE authorities. My options are:
1 To do as above, and run a very slight risk
2 Get passport 2 officially cancelled by the Passport Office
3 Get a new passport on the basis of passport 2.

I don't have time to do anything other than option 1.

Any views or experiences?

Cheers

i dont think that you will have a problem, as long as you have a valid passport and a valid visa, yes they can be in different passports, the issue is that obviously you have to have special consideration to get a second passport, i would go to the visa section in the brit embassy here and ask them to clip your corners for you

I've never had any issues using 2 passports entering any GCC country (i.e. getting the stamp in the empty passport without the UAE visa). I was delayed once for 20 mins once in Bahrain while they had a conflab but soon sent on my way.

Why is passport 3 illegal? If passport 2 is full then surely you can utilise the other passport?
