Are you serious? Have your phone number on your passport? Someone then picks it up in the street, will now have your details. Would you have your car registration number on your car keys, or your address on your house keys?

I hope you're not that dense! Anyone finding your keys will then know where to use them, wouldn't they?

Well, the phone number or address number would have been publisized or annoounced on the radio or even TV.

I lost my international passport for sometimes now and i reported to the police and also made a police report but since then, i have not heard anything about it.

Dont you think having a phone number or address on the passport would have help me to locate it since then?

Your passport is proof of your identity, not your address. Your proof of address is usually your drivers icence.

People move so often, it would create a massive backlog, if your passport had to be ammended each time you moved house, and valid visas would need to be re-issued.
