Thanks for replying imigrate. should i be preparing documents from the date my passport expired to the present just in case i am asked? do you think they will ask for these documents at all? if so what would be the best to provide to show that i have been here all along? someone here said that bank statements are best, but what else could i use?
I might just be jumping the gun... but then again, i want to be prepared.
I don't think this will be a problem.
If you renew your passport, there will be note in your expired passport somewhere, stating that it was renewed and/or cancelled. The old passport is likely cut on the cover.
