I travel a lot and I want to keep it
In what country? In mine, you always get the old passport back, marked cancelled. I've kept all mine and I agree, it's nice to be able to look through them and remind myself of where I've been.
I'm sure all countries do the same because there are very practical reasons. Let's say you have a 10 year passport, and after 5 years you decide to visit Thingyland. They require you to have a visitor visa to go there, and they issue you with a 10 year visa valid for multiple visits. 5 years later you get a new passport. Then sometime during the next 5 years you want to see more of Thingyland. The visa is still valid even though the passport isn't, so you don't need to get another one, just take both passports and you've got the visa to be able to show to Thingyland immigration. If your country's passport administration didn't send the old passport back, that would be stealing 5 years of visa time that you've paid for.
Even worse, what if you live in another country, they've given you a permanent residence permit, that's stuck in your old passport and it didn't get returned. Now you're in a pickle - you've lost your proof that you can legally live there. You might go away for a foreign trip, and your adopted country refuses to let you back in afterwards. You NEED that old passport to make sure of no trouble getting home.
So I'd be incredibly surprised if any country doesn't routinely send the old passport back.
The expired passport is returned to you.
it will not be in your new passport but your old passport is returned to you after it is voided
Where i live they let u keep the old passport.
It won't disappear.
Yes it's a new hard copy but you can scan your old PP and keep it as memory
When you get your new passport you will receive your old passport with all your information in.
