    This seems like the best place for this.

    I'm 18 now, and when I was 10 years old (2004), my mum applied for a passport on my behalf. It was a 10-year passport, and will last until I am 20 (2014).

    But everyone and everything says I should have only got a 5-year passport. So what happened to make me special?

    I'm not complaining - it saved my mum some money, and the inconvenience of having a slightly longer pause at border control than everyone else isn't so bad - but I can't seem to work out why it happened.

    Or am I just wrong and 10-year-olds get 10-year passports?

    ...this is actually the most deliciously random thread I've seen come up on my latest discussions feed for a while. I love it. Thank you, OP.

    See if you can get some money or something if they did it in error

    Well, it's been bugging me since I found out it was abnormal on a school trip years ago. And there are some pretty clever people on TSR, so I figured someone here might know

    Oh, someone will definitely know, there are all sorts on TSR. It wasn't intended as criticism, I actually think it's an awesome thread :L

    This makes you sound like a mysterious character. I'm intrigued.
