New passport, do I need to send old passport too for visa

I will be travelling to India on a new passport that is being processed at the moment.

Do I need to send my old passport when applying for visa also?

If so this means for my husband and myself we may have to send 4 envelopes for return?

Any answers please

I might as well add my query onto this thread, as it's relevant.

I got married a couple of years ago, and my missus is getting a new passport, so as this will be her first passport with her surname changed, do we again reference the last few visa numbers, even though her surname will have changed?

What do you reckon, what's the best bet?

If the photo booths develop your photos with a white border, why should you mess about cutting them off, we have never done that, and always got ourvisas;;)))

Someone on here a little while ago had the visa refused because she had left the white border on her photo's. she has the passports returned and had to do new photo's, so it might be an idea to find the post and send them a PM and ask them what they had to do, then you know you have it right.:-)) Gel

its the size of the photograph that matters it should be 2"x2",only heard of one case of a problem with borders,could have been down to an over enthusiastic clerk,as most photo booths do have borders,best just measure the size and trim if necessary
