Passport Renewal

John made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

Department of Internal Affairs did not have the information requested.

From: John

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

I would like to ask after renewing the passport, will the new passport have any endorsement or note to show that the new passport is linked to the "old passport"?

How to demonstrate to other parties (e.g., foreign government) that the "new passport" is linked to the "old passport"?

Yours faithfully,

Tēnā koe John,

Your request has been forwarded onto the Passport Office as a Business Inquiry.

It may be helpful for me to explain, where information can be freely provided without the need for collation or consultation, and the nature of the information does not require considerations for withholding or refusal under the Official Information Act (OIA), there is no need to action it as an OIA request.
