Valid passport, invalid ID card
A few days ago, I had reason to call at the Passport Office, Valletta to apply for a new document.
Although my current passport was still valid, it would have expired while I was abroad.
When I called at the office with my valid passport, I was requested to show my ID card. As I had inadvertently left it in my car, I tried to bring to their attention the fact that my passport was still valid and that the ID had expired.
Imagine my astonishment when I was faced with the situation that they accepted an expired ID card and not a valid passport.
Luckily, my car was parked round the corner and the escalator was working.
