Removing pages from your passport is an easy procedure that will take a brief moment of your time. Bear in mind that removing the pages from your passport is considered deliberately damaging your passport and will require that it be replaced with a new passport, unless the passport you are removing pages from is expired. That said, removing a page can be a good thing to do if you want to have a quick keepsake of your travels abroad.

    Cut a piece of string from the spool that is slightly longer than the length of the page which you are removing.

  2. 2

    Soak the piece of string in water for a few seconds.

  3. 3

    Place the string on top of the page you wish to remove and align it with the inside edge of the passport's binding.

  4. 4

    Close your passport while the string remains in place. Apply light pressure to the passport, then open it back up to the page where you have placed the string.

  5. 5

    Tear the page out of your passport by lifting it up from the upper right corner and peeling downward, using the string as a guide.
