Crease on passport ID page

Jump to last reply

I recently returned from a trip to the United Kingdon. While I was checking my bags in the US, the Delta counter agent noted that there was a crease through the ID page on my passport. It looks like at one time the corner had been dog-eared and the crease goes through the photo. The paper or lamination is not torn at all and I never thought anything of it before. I am pretty sure it was there when I traveled to Argentina and back in the spring. I think it just got folded at some point when putting it into my pocket. The counter agent said that she could deny boarding because of this 'crease' and I should be careful and get a new passport. She said she would "let me go" because I was going to the UK and not Mexico. However, she said, that if my plane was headed to Mexico she would not let me go because I would likely be turned away in Mexico because of this crease. My passport is not all that old and I still have aboutr 6 years before it expires. Should I worry about this? Do I need to get a new passport? I worried most of the plane ride to the UK that I would be turned away at the boarder, but no one except that one desk agent has ever even batted and eye or mentioned it.
