Lost already cancelled passport-do I need to report it?

I renewed my UK passport last year because the one I had ran out of pages. Had to submit the old passport (the one run out of pages) when I made application.

The old passport came back with the top right corner been snipped. Presumably, its been cancelled on the computer system?.

Now, I cannot seem to find the old (snipped right corner) passport. Do I need to report it? If it's cancelled already, I don't see the point. It being cancelling is also clearly visually apparent (snipped right corner)

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

I don't know if you have to report it; however, should you decide to, then the UK Gov website explains the process you follow to cancel a lost or stolen passport; this link will take you there.

Hope this helps.

old thread but...

The snip shows the passport is cancelled but it also means the passport is cancelled electronically.

No idea if you should report its loss
