What is the "document number" for a passport?

#1  Postby Hugin » Mar 16, 2011 11:36 am

I'm going to travel soon, and for my ID document I chose passport. The "document number" for my passport, is that the passport number or my personal ID number?

Yeah I think so too, but if it isn't, EasyJet wont let me on the plane.

I'm damn sick of the whole security theatre...

Is there a number to call to make sure?

Yeah I did, they didn't seem to be exactly sure (British passports apparently don't have ID numbers), but they thought it was the passport number.

Every passport everywhere has an ID number. Before the ubiquitous IT jargon it was called simply a "passport number".

You're using Easy Jet?

Good luck.

:this:

Easy Jet may seem less expensive but actually it's not.

Firstly, every other company lets you have 2 bags with you, of which one is for laptop, and of course any assorted bags you have picked up at the airport. With Easy Jet, they let you have 1 bag, for any others, you have to pay.

Secondly, within the flight you have to pay for everything, including a glass of water. To top it all, because of all the security you cannot get any liquid from the outside and have it on board. Except for medicine which has to be checked before boarding.

Thirdly, a lot of times they fly from/to small airports where even getting a coffee is a luxury... Okay if you are flying to, but awful when you are flying from... Oh, and a lot of times getting to and from these airports is a hassle and costs twice as much as for the big comfortable airports.

So, compare the cost of the other airlines, with all the extras they give with Easy jet...

The reason it says "document number" and not "passport number" is because your passport is not the only valid form of ID needed to travel in the EU any more. You may also have a government issued national identity card and if using that it is that number you put in. At least that's how it is on the Ryanair online check in. There's a drop down menu where you pick which form of ID you're using and underneath it says "document number".

EDIT: I should mention that after I put in "Ireland" as my nationality the other ID option disappears leaving me with just the passport option so maybe UK does not have that option also?

Swedish passports have ID numbers as well as passport numbers.

Anyways, the trip was fine, EasyJet worked better than expected. As it was only a short trip, I got everything I needed in the hand luggage. Thanks for trying to help me out everyone.

"ID" stands for "identification". In your passport you have your personal identification number (personnummer) and passport identification number (passnummer). You are a person, your passport is a document. :lol:

In the past when travelling with Easyjet I have used the number at the bottom of page 31 and not the Passport number at the top right of page 31. This number gives your date of birth and the passport's expiry date.

FFS, I thought Hugin was back for a moment, then noticed the date & that this is a zombie thread.

And because it's a Hugin thread ... circle-jerking-Trotskyite-Chomsky-loving-idiots-who-know-nothing-about-capitalism, what do you think about passports?
