No and I really didn't look like me! A Thai passport lady asked 'where did this this thin pretty lady go?' very offensive but never refused!

We had a delay entering the UK at Stansted when they were 4 (their passport photos were taken when they were a few weeks old and they were both asleep in them!). The border control lady ummed over the passports for a long time and then called her boss who dismissed her concerns and we finally were allowed in. This was the only time but I was glad to get their new passports afterwards as obviously a 5-year-old looks a lot different!

We have come back from Istanbul and lots of people were stopped because of the work that they had done to their face.

Airport security are trained to look for signs on your face that wouldn't change, eye shape for example, not the picture as a whole, personally I don't look anything like mine.

Yeah, people coming back from Turkey with a full head of hair and gleaming white teeth. Didn't look like that flying out...

Dreading this on our next holiday 🙈 My lo is only a couple of weeks old in hers, now she's 3 and can be pretty shy with new people. Hoping they can just ask her big brother the questions and that he doesn't say he doesn't know her so he gets a holiday without her..

When my dad came back in from holiday they mentioned it to him and said it would be a problem if he went to the USA.
