A scuffed, stuffed passport may be a traveler’s badge of honor—but it can also derail a trip. Border officers (in the U.S. or abroad) can reject a passport for being dog-eared, torn, or otherwise beat-up. If any of your pages are ripped or there is any damage to the data page, get your passport replaced. Ditto if your book has accidentally gone through the wash—it doesn’t do wonders for the electronic chip that’s embedded in the cover.
