I need to renew my passport. Do I get my old passport back?


My passport expires this year so I need to apply for a new one. In the last ten years we traveled all over the world and I have a number of very unique and interesting stamps in it. Memories!!! Do I get your old passport back with a new one or it is gone for good?
I cannot seem to find any information about it on the official website but at least I learned I could apply for the thicker 48-pages passport for no additional fee.

If you enclose a note that you want it back, they will include it when they send your new one.

Yes you get your old passport back, they punch holes in it, at least they did when I renewed several years ago.

Yes. I have four old ones. It's so fun now to look at my old passport photos. My kids can't believe how long my hair was and how much I look like them!

DH received his old passport back this year--now, if only we could put it to good use ;-)

Thank you, thank you all. I really want to hold on to all those wonderful memories and stamps in my passport too.

Yes, you get the old one back with a hole or two punched thru it (or at least I always have).
