Travel Forums Europe Help!! Is this considered a damaged passport?

I'm going to Denmark next week and I just found out that the last empty page of my passport is torn (quite small, almost 2 cm.) but other pages are totally fine and my passport is still in good condition. Do you think I would get into troubles? Is it considered a damaged passport? I'm really worried but I have no time to go make a new one. Thanks in advance

That should not be a problem but you may want to consider applying for a new one soon if you are likely to need to get your passport stamped much before the present one expires. Some agents will find a corner of a page to add a new stamp and some will not do so. You don't want to reach that point where an agent refuses you because there is no space to stamp your passport anymore.

Is this the only blank page left in your passport? The other pages that are just "fine" are they blank or already stamped? Is the page only torn and there is no missing piece or or is there a piece missing?

If there is a piece totally missing an immigration official on the ball will wonder if there is a missing endorsement from countries that aid terrorism.

Do you still have the piece to prove there is no deliberate tampering to remove a previous entry stamp?
