    The annoying thing is the insistence that we carry photo ID, would have thought this is a major contributing factor to the amount of loss and theft.

      I agree – although that isn’t the UK that makes those rules, it is other countries. I have no photo driving license, so have to carry my passport. It’s about time the UK caught up with everyone else and issued formal photo id cards which would remove any need to carry your passport. They tried it before I think… but I would definitely have one now.

    My passport, along with the contents of my bag, was stolen last week. I couldn’t apply for a new one until I received my new credit cards, so I’m going to be” indocumentada” for more than a month. This means problems with hotels, no possibility of flying even on domestic flights with Ryanair. The abolition of the photo ID residence card was the most stupid idea ever, and the Embassy procedure is painfully slow.
    I’m seriously thinking of taking Spanish nationality – a new passport is issued on the spot and costs 40€.

      Sorry to hear about your bag Mary – I hope nothing was taken that can’t be replaced.

      I absolutely agree with you abut the photo ID residence card. I moved to Spain just after it was abolished… so I too have to carry my passport around with me, putting it at risk. I’d be much happier with a formal ID card.
