They realized folks who renewed their passport last year have until 2025 before it expires again. This group will be pissed if their passport remains in pristine condition by then. [laugh]

"For those aged below 16, the passport validity will remain at five years. ....As children’s facial features change more rapidly, renewing their passport every five years will allow the photograph in their passport to be updated more frequently, which will minimise identification problems when going through immigration," the agency said. 

But what if as an adult I go for a facelift and some skin polishing??

Then my new look may differ from the passport photo.

S'pore passport remains 2nd most powerful in the world, behind Japan's

Quote

SINGAPORE - Japan continues to outstrip Singapore as the world's most powerful passport in a new update to a global index.

It noted that Japanese passport holders can travel without a prior visa to a record 193 destinations, up from 191 in the first quarter of this year.

Singapore remains in second place with access to 192 destinations, compared with 190 places reported in January.

Precisely. 

Calculate the depreciation if we are going to leave it inside the drawer.
