Default Damaged British passport!

I don’t know if this if this is right place to ask this question but…..

I just discovered that my British passport is slightly damaged and that has a burn mark in the front it out ( I don’t know how on earth this happened! ), do you guys think I should apply to get a replacement passport or stick with my current passport, the passport itself is fine just the front page has a black burn mark and small hole on it (the pages are fine and photo page is fine), will this stop people accepting my passport when traveling, I feel so stupid asking this but really don’t want to have apply for another passport considering that I have only just become a permanent resident of Canada…….


Thank you for any help in advance

Hmm, I'd ring up the Embassy if I were you, just to be on the safe side. But I mean, how large is it? Does it cover the seal on the front?

Compare the hassle of getting a new passport now to the hassle of being denied boarding a flight because the airline freaks out at your passport.

To be on the safe side, get a new passport.

My spare UK passport has got doggy teeth marks in it, it is all a bit faded, smudged and crushed where I used to keep it in my pocket when I was driving, skiing etc, and the worst bit is the photo plastic is even lifting a bit through natural wear & tear.

Apart from getting stopped a couple of times on borders and a careful look by officials (in Europe, driving across), never a big problem so far.

Runs out in a couple of years but good for keeping to prove ID when driving (lots of random checks).

My 'good' passport with the NZ visas is kept in a little safe!
