A passport is an official government-issued document that acts as proof of identification and nationality for anyone traveling abroad. It includes crucial personal information such as the holder's complete name, date of birth, photograph, and signature, as well as information on their citizenship and issuing authority.
Serving as the primary form of identification, the passport is crucial for verifying identity during admissions procedures, visa applications, and when entering the UK. Additionally, it is an indispensable requirement for any international travel, including trips to and from Nepal and during study breaks. Ensuring that the passport meets specific criteria, such as having a validity period extending beyond the intended stay in the UK and containing adequate blank pages for visa stamps, checking the passport's expiration date regularly and renew it well in advance to avoid delays or complications in the visa application process.
