Passport Match Question (expiration date)

Had a questions on the passport match. I know the ticket is support to match "EXACTLY’ but I had a small technicality question:

If on my exam ticket it reads expiration as:

15 MARCH 2025

and on my passport it reads as:

15 MAR 2025

Is this acceptable? I assumed so but wanted to make sure.

Ouch MAR is invalid… you best go to your passport agency and make sure they fully spell the “March” date.

I had a similar issue. Click the link below that explains how to resolve this issue:


Very informative link!!

I have a passport where the expiration date is written as “31/12/2022” whereas my exam ticket says “31 December 2022”.

This hasn’t caused any problems so far.
