    I was brought up a Muslim and started wearing a headscarf from a young age, my passport photo shows me wearing it, however when I leave home I will no longer wear it because I haven't been a Muslim for years, and have only been pretending because of my parents.

    I've looked at the gov.uk website and it looks like I would need to report it lost/stolen to actually get it replaced, because it is no where near being expired. I don't think I could do this though because it's technically just outright lying.

    I do feel like I'm somewhat recognisable without me wearing it- however as someone that is no longer a Muslim, it is also something that I don't want to be reminded of every time I need to use my passport for something. Anyone have any advice?

    If you aren't recognizable in the photo you have then changing it could be a good idea, unfortunately you would have to go through the renewal process and therefore would lose all put the 9 months you have on it. Although if you want Id with a recent photo changing your driving licence photo would only cost £14
