A British tourist has been denied entry when he stamped tourist souvenirs during his visit to Machu Picchu, Peru on his passport.
Many famous tourist attractions in the world such as Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in Japan, Antarctic Heritage and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogoch village – famous for the longest landmark in the world… provide export tourist stamping services. Passport entry for visitors. Although this service attracts the interest of visitors, they are only meaningful souvenirs and have no legal value because they are fake stamps with no legal value.
Therefore, before deciding to put a souvenir stamp on your passport, you need to consider the troubles you may encounter at the airport. In fact, a British tourist was banned from flying due to a souvenir stamp in his passport. According to The Sun, that is the case of Tina Sibley, 60, a British citizen currently living in Spain, who booked a flight to Phuket from Madrid in February 2020.
Tina Sibley was stopped at the airport while checking in to board the plane because her passport contained a souvenir stamp during her visit to Machu Picchu (Peru). “Don’t put these tourist stamps in your passport,” Tina Sibley wrote on Favebook.
To settle the trip, Ms. Tina Sibley had to contact the British embassy to get an urgent confirmation and book another flight. The total cost incurred was her total cost of £1,000.
In Taiwan, a woman was denied entry after her daughter affixed a Hello Kitty stamp to her passport. Passport troubles don’t just come from tourist stamps. Destinations such as Bahrain, Qatar and the UAE are likely to ban any visitors if they have previously been to Israel. Therefore, Israel had to stamp entry and exit for visitors on a separate passport, instead of a passport.
