I'm also curious as to what will happen.


My assumption is: nothing will happen and your bank account will continue to work fine, but you will need to use your old passport as identification until you update your passport at the bank.


Someone tell me if I'm wrong.

Depends on the bank I suppose, but I just took old and new passports. Note that your old passport number may continue to be linked to your account, with a notation somewhere about your new number. That's because some systems make the original ID number permanent and unchangeable.


You'll almost certainly have to go back to the same city where you opened the account to do this.


Don't forget you also have to update your SIM registration with your new passport number.
